This week Barb hosted our 2nd Monday gathering of weavers, and as you can see some very talented knitters. Jean joined us, bringing a box filled with her beautifully knitted mittens and the pattern books they were knit from. As she lifted the lid , with her mittens tantalizingly displayed; you would have thought she had opened a box of the most delectable chocolates. Ohhs and ahhs, followed by us gathering around, as moths to a flame to touch and try them on. Oh to be on her gift list. Or perhaps to make some of my own. Yes!

Thanks Barb for modeling my shawl. I am never sure I like it until I see it on someone. Barb finished the fabric for her unique chair and Susan showed us a new scarf with a felted pin attached. Fun and funky. The rag rug above is twined on a wooden frame, a technique we should get Barb to demonstrate.

We had lots of show and tell this week and Joanne brought some of the purses and aprons that she is getting together for an upcoming art fair. This purse had a finger woven strap and rya flowers that I thought was particularly lovely.

And what would a gathering be without some treats to keep us going. Barb’s soups were well complimented by Joannes bread and of course desert. Thanks Barb for a festive day, I always go home re energized to get weaving and in this case, mitten knitting.
