finished the merino hat and scarf

I thought you may like to know that I have finished the wee hat and scarf I was knitting at the Guild yesterday.  I finished it last night and it just shows you don't have to sweat over every project.  so if you need to make something for Christmas, spin big yarn and knit with big pins!
What a nice show and tell, and Pauline's knitted suit has to be the item of the day for me, although not hand knitted.  have e mailed picture to Ann for the newsletter.  Am plotting hand knitted skirt.

Jo's Challenge - Gathering, November 13th

Jo's Challenge

Entries for 'Jo's Challenge' will be displayed at our Gathering in November, and all who attend will be able to vote on the winner. There are three prizes for the entries which get the most votes. Prizes are vouchers to spend with our suppliers on the day.

This was a tough challenge and one which encouraged us to push our boundaries. We used as inspiration a craft object (non-textile) and made a textile piece. It will be exciting to see what members have created.
Funds raised will be sent to Borders Forest Trust for their 'ground-breaking' project recreating the original wildwood in the Southern Uplands near Moffat and at the Devil's Beeftub.
