November Show and Tell

Janice and Janet seem to be the only members who had machine knitting to show.

Janet has a new Grandson and has been using up some of her wool stash knitting a variety of hat for him. Unfortunately we can't look at all of them because some are already in use. It is a very good way to practice different techniques and use up small quantities of yarn at the same time.

Janice has made this sweater for her husband. Sorry about the rather poor photo which does not show it off to its best advantage. This one was done using the garter carriage.A close up of the stitch used for the sweater. It is a variation of the traditional argyll pattern usually done as Fair Isle or intarsia. It makes a very suitable men's design and, as usual Janice has finished it off beautifully.
