Project Gallery March 2014

Our members have been busy and had a lot to show for it this month.

Melanie made this afghan for her great niece using a pattern from Berocco called the Darla Blanket.  She also showed us the new bracelet she had made out of her mom's old knitting needles through a vendor on, you could do he same thing with a crochet hook, I bet.
Linda made this princess teddy bear using the same pattern she used for her state fair bear, adding  the crown, skirt & shoes.
The sweet and fluffy little kiwi bird amigurumi is Erin's work.

Rosemary is working up this scarf for display at the Gale Woods Farm shop.  The wool is shorn from the variety of  sheep that live on the farm and the yarn spun on the farm.  The yarn is available for purchase at Gale Wood Farms.

Peggy crocheted this hooded scarf for her sister using the bulky Lion Brand Hometown yarn and a 10mm, size P hook.

Theresa is almost finished with her Amy Cardigan, a Crochetville CAL project, she'll be shipping down to her sister in FL.  The yarn used in the project is Omega brand Mimosa, a 62% cotton, 38% rayon z-twist yarn.  She also brought in  samples of Lotus yarn, a new z-twist yarn created by crochet designers, Vashti Braha & Doris Chan.

Joan made the seafoam green cowl/hooded scarf out of a worsted weight wool, the pattern resembles Bruges Lace.  She also made a slouchy granny square hat for her daughter and shared a felted bowl containing clothespin & yarn people she found at Bazaar Girls while visiting in Washington.

Mary has been working on this baby blanket with mini 2" granny squares, she's running low on the Lion Brand Jamie Baby yarn needed to complete the project - if anyone knows where she can find some, be sure to let us know.

As part of her de-stash efforts, Maxine has run across several partially completed projects, which she is now completing. The purple tunisian scarf is made from a hand spun silk.  She also shared a large bag she somehow managed to felt all in one piece, it's already in use, so she didn't pass it around.


Last but not least, Jen has been busy with these adorable four baby afghans.
