November Show and Tell 2
Margaret and Brenda have been doing more knitting for their handicraft stall. Usling wonderful fancy yarns they have knitted scarfs, rucksacks and purses. Although these examples have been done by hand they are intending adapting the patterns so they can do them on their chunky machine.

November Show and Tell
Anne knitted this delicate scarf in a lacy tuck stitch. The close-up shows details of the stitch.
This month we spent a considerable period discussing the Machine Knitters Guild, our commitment to it and the competitions. Whether on not some of us will enter is still a matter of debate. After tea or coffee Elaine gave us a demonstration of how to do a couple of fancy edges on the machine and we looked at some pieces of felting that members had produced. The time went flew by and before we knew it, it was time to pack up and go home. Sorry there are not many photographs because I forgot to get my camera out until going-home time!
