May 2015

Sue provided a talk on collars and described her experiences knitting some of the designs from Maggie Andrews book 'Add a Collar'.  Some of Maggie's designs are below.

Beginners Group:
1st Stephanie. This is an interesting top, knitted in pink with hand tooled lace in a central panel. The side panels are knitted sideways.


Advanced Group:
1st Vee created a multi-coloured striped garment with  v neck. The yarn colour change was done with a 2 colour fair isle that produced a wave effect and was  completed with a crochet collar.

2nd Sandra crafted a beige coloured Grigna yarn knitted on standard gauge, into an Ann Brown design jacket.

3rd Valerie (new member) created a small child sized jumper in grey lambs wool with angora.

4th Valerie created a design that can be worn as either a tunic or a shrug by joining the buttons in different ways. It was very versatile and am sorry I hadn't taken more useful photos to show it off. So an action for another time to grab some and update.

5th Phyllis knitted a tuck stitch stole in green single stranded hobby on the standard gauge machine.



Come and join us to share our passion for knitting over a cup of tea or coffee and we always have a tasty selection of biscuits
