Where is everyone this morning?
We are in the wet room dyeing.

 Barbara is dyeing a sliver then putting it in the microwave.
 Jill is using a couple of different methods of dyeing her fleece.
 Yvonne is colouring a blank, knitted beforehand and it will be unraveled after it dries and ready for a new project.
Here are some of our results, our fleece, yarn and Barbaras apron.

Inspirations from September

 Liz's Scarf
 Anne's first raw wool spinning

Judith R knitted these bears for Barbara's twin grandsons

 Brenda designed and knitted this lace shawl with her hand spun. The shoulders are beautifully shape for a nice fit.

 Gaye has been knitting. The two toned shawl is the Hitch hikers pattern. Then she experimented with a variegated yarn.
 Another shawl with a toggle that enables the shawl to rest nicely on the shoulders.

Hand spinning from Barbara M

A small rug from Jill R made with remnants of yarn. 

Jill F brought our last scone offering for Septembers morning tea. The cinnamon scrolls were delicious. Thank You.
