Blankets and Shawls evening

This was the final meeting before the summer break.

To start we had a show and tell and Claire brought some sweet baby clothes for a brand new family member.

Angie brought along a very chunky blanket she had crocheted using a size 20 hook and several ends of chunky yarn together. – The colours were glorious.

The topic this time was blankets and shawls – both for babies and adults. Several members brought along things they had made both in the past and recently.

Members should bring along a pattern they would like to use and a tension square in the stitch pattern they intend to use e.g. tuck, fairisle, slip, plating, etc.

Finally, there was a short discussion about what to expect in September – we are revisiting the topic of using a different yarn and/or stitch pattern to the one given in the original pattern. Many of us have a stash of vintage knitting patterns and magazines but the yarns stated in the pattern are no longer available. Also, some people are sensitive to wool and need to use acrylic or cotton, or simply use up some of the huge stash of yarns people own.
