Show and Tell

Lyn showed an Aran weight, blue hat she had made on her Addi king size circular machine.  

April had a hand knitted cardigan in blue for a small boy.

Demos

Congratulations to all who put together this programme aat the last minute, they did a brilliant job.

Frances showed us how to make a raglan sleeve seam much more interesting using an adjustable 7 prong transfer tool.  The first had a row of eyelet holes several stitches in from the edge, the second had a delicate patterning by transferring 7 then 6 then 5 down to 2 stitches every 2-4 rows.  This is then repeated until the raglan decreasing shaping is done.

Margaret found an interesting technique on Youtube, first making a strangely shaped fabric with large holes, then threading the fabric to make a braid like appearance.  She assured us it was straight forward once you got into the rhythm.
