Crafters Winter 2017

What a great way to end winter in the valley – 38 crafters getting together to push out the grey skies and usher in sunny ones, we can feel that spring is on the way. Lyndel’s little sheep certainly thought so, her name badge shows a happy little sheep on green grass, quite topical as we are starting to see lots of little lambs in paddocks around the Huon.

Buy or Barter table had some interesting things today, from Evening Dresses to Walnut Dye and all things in between. Show and Tell was as varied as ever, if you have anything to add about any particular pic below, please email to give more details.

Lyndel had some interesting knits today and she always tells us the pattern and passes on knowledge about the process. For those who are interested in her Tubular Cast-on in the Round, here is a link. In the pic of Lyndel’s row of socks, the Rose City Rollers pattern is free by Mara Catherine Bryner, and the Mercury socks are a free pattern by Kim Drotar, search in Ravelry. The rest are paid patterns available from the New York Sock Club by Knitting Expat Designs.
