Show and Tell - January

close-up of the button made by Sali A. 
Show and Tell at the January meeting was packed with a wonderful variety of beautiful items. Our members have been busy and productive. Well done, ladies! This is a picture heavy post.

Whenever possible, the pattern links are given.

Briana F. knit a hat for her fiancé, Patrick

New member, Carrie J. shared a knit hat with "smocking" and a pair
 of mittens and liner knit as one piece, end to end , for double-thick wooly warmth.
The mitten pattern is called Karen
Cinde P. shared a white cowl with fringe, a sweater that she is not happy
with how it looks when worn, a market bag, and light-weight cowl.
Dana H. is knitting a hot pad cover
Dawna H. knit boot cuffs, a Christmas stocking, a linen stitch scarf,
and a mini stocking 
Other projects Dawna H. shared were a vest with lovely drape,
a beret/tam, some tin-can lid ornaments, and a mini stocking she
made for friend Christmas gifts
Jeni V. knit and wore My Friend Virginia capelet and shared a headband,
a knit and felted bubble bag with a long handle, and a cabled cowl
Julie W. knit a lacy diamond scarf, a Baltic Summer shawl/scarf, and is currently
working on a poinsettia shawl/scarf
Laura B. purchased the kit for her hand-knit and felted bag. She created an adjustable
i-cord handle for the bag. Laura spun the yarn and knit it into a lovely vest. 

Mary H. shared an auto trash bag that she made in class taught by Jeni V.
She showed the members an electronic tablet case she made out of
cork cloth. The cloth is made with a thin layer of real cork. Ask Mary for details.
Nancy S. wore the hand-knit shawl with a beaded bind off
The shawl's pattern was Sweet Little Nothing Shawl
Rachel B. is knitting a baby blanket.
Sali A. spun the thick and thin yarn for the coat that she crocheted.
Sali brought many cowls and scarves and a dog coat that she crocheted.
Sam G. designed and crocheted this sweet little doll
Sandy W. shared the baby booties she knit, the Year of Stitches project -
improvised embroidered design, a baby hat and mittens, and a knit and
felted bubble bag with a long cross body strap.
Sue O. brought some hot pads made with a Crohook, a crochet hook with
a hook on both ends. It creates a Tunsian crochet stitch with two colors
of yarn. Sue used a pattern she saw on this Guild blog post to make a
durable hot pad. Sue has been crocheting ditty bags with handles
 for a 2018 convention. She was asked to make 100 bags,
and she has 93 already made. 
Vicky B. knit a Sheep headband and a Project Peace Cowl. She also
presented the program at the January meeting on embroidery stitches.
Hopefully some of the Guild members will participate in the Year of
Stitches project.
Cinde P. brought a gift she received from a friend.
The bag is made from a zippered money bag.
Hopefully, Cinde will be able to have her friend present
a program on how to make the bag at a future Guild meeting.
