May meeting

This month, we had a visit from Evelyn and Rex from Reynolds Yarn (Austinmere).
There were lots of goodies to purchase - book, patterns and yarn, in synthetics, natural fibres and blends. Evelyn gave us some helpful hints on knitting ponchos - many members went away intending to look through their stash or use newly purchased yarn to make a poncho.

Judy's workshop gave further ideas for making ponchos and other garments from diagonal squares. Such a simple concept with some amazing possibilities.

The "one-skein challenge" was a great success. We had several entries ranging from bedsocks, gloves and scarves to ipod covers. Congratulations to Anne Davison for her winning entry - a Bundanoon cashmere scarf. Anne will be rewarded with a pair of Lantern Moon knitting needles of her choice kindly donated by The Wool Inn

During Show and Tell there was an audible gasp when Ruth showed this beautiful embroidered waistcoat.
Congratulations to Merrin on her award winning Aran jumper.

The raffle this month was won by Diane Schnebli.
