July meeting to end our Year.

The July meeting was the last of the club year (which runs from September to July) and the end of the 2013 Challenge.  The challenge this year was to knit an outfit for a doll and we had a number of people who were able to complete the challenge.  Here's the photos of the things that were knitted.

We also were able to sort out a problem for one fellow knitter.  She had an old garment that she was fond of and wanted to create a copy.  However she didn't recognise the stitch and asked if anyone knew what it was.  Never one to turn down a challenge, Christine took a closer look, picked up a pair of needles and some yarn and set to work.

 By the end of the evening she thinks she had cracked it and wrote down what she'd worked out so our other knitter could go away and work the garment out.  We are looking forward to seeing the finished garment.

There was lots of chatter going on in the mean time and aslo some show and tell.  We  also collected the last of the knitted squares and saw the blankets completed so far.  But more of the blankets in the next post.
