Kim's Hat

Kim has fallen in love with Malabrigo (who wouldn't?). In this hat it's Rasta.  Matches her eyes, and is a perfect fit.  Congrats Kim!

Carol's Bum Cuff

Carol's stunning Linen Stitch skirt, knit with Galway Heather, one of GBOW's #1 faves!  Looks so tweedy in this stitch which holds its shape well.  Nice work, and there's an upcoming class for those who are interested. 

Three sessions 1pm - 3pm, February 9, 16, 23. $50 plus materials.

Judy's Toque

Judy's second only toque - Noro Silk Garden with a bouquet of Chicpaca by Diamond Luxury.  It's keeping her ears toasty this winter (and aren't we all a bit tired of the cold temperatures?) and looks great. Nice cowl too.

Miruh's Poncho

Oh my, it has been way too long since we posted any photos--or anything here. 
So here we go with dealing with the backlog!

Miruh is showing off her beautiful poncho, knit with Ella Rae superwash, tweedy look.  We like the unusual shape of this poncho, lots of knitting but it's ALL worth it.  Right!?

Roisin's Shawl

Roisin sent one of her special shawls via daughter Maura and sister Dara who are visiting Aunt Lorna in the U.S. Lorna is in her 90s and looking great, wrapped in Rosin's woolly love!

Sidhe Haps

Mary wanted to be beheaded for this photo, but couldn't take her head off without losing some of this soooo beauuuuuutiful Sidhe Hap, knit in class, using Malabrigo Rasta and handspun yarn.

Wendy was in the same Sidhe Hap class and knit her absolutely gorgeous Hap with Alpaca and two different skeins of handspun with stunning results, don't you agree?  We're impressed.

The Sidhe Hap (like the Chantal Shawl) is Roisin's design and pattern.

Shirley's Sweater

There are a lot of knitting grandmas here in Powell River... here is Shirley's Christmas sweater love for her grandson, in Chicago.  Knit in our class, and no doubt worn gratefully in much-colder-than-here Chicago.

Maria's Hoodie

Maria's front and back in a hoodie, a Diamond pattern and yarn.  Cozy and just the right colour for her (it's purple!), and lots of knitting.
