Roisin's daughter-in-law Mylee modeling a Sirdar Raffaella sweater, She requested "de-heading", but Phil
didn't comply. Pink and fluffy has never been Mylee, but she likes the style
without the fancy stuff. A new project for Roisin!
Last Friday Roisin was at Craft NSW gallery, getting a preview of Jude Skeers late May exhibit. He bought a salmon carving when he was in Powell River from Ivan Rosypskye and now he's knitted the design! Jude said it took a lot of hard graphing to get the salmon right. It looks amazing.
Roisin is off to Australia for April but she will be checking in now and then and sending photos, we hope. Here's her finished Coast Salish style sweater, noting she experimented with colours and yarns (what a surprise...) You can see Roisin's sweater at the store.
Her students are close behind. Here's Petra's lovely traditional design....sleeves still to come.
Claire's grey whale is floating in/over the ocean waves, on the back of her sweater. Claire has a story with
this, but you'll have to ask her when you see her wearing it. Next winter! Not
finished yet, but looking wonderful.
Laura's classic traditional beauty - everyone has produced something
different and special.
Valerie's sheep have never looked so good. See what you can do with gorgeous handspun?
Valerie is knitting this Elizabeth Zimmermann Adult Surprise Jacket with her own wool, raised, carded, dyed, spun by Valerie. Looking forward to the finished product; you'll see it at her Farmer's Market table this summer I'm sure.
Roisin's Coast Salish Sweater Class is winding up-- or down. Such great work here. These sweaters are all knit in the new twisted 6 ply yarn from Custom Woolen Mills AND available at the store. Sooooo much easier to knit with than the roving Laura's work in progress. This one Laura has chosen to do in a traditional style of design. Looking good.
Jeannie's work in progress. She has chosen these cute
birds for the back and vine design on the fronts. We're impressed and I think
Jeannie is a little bit too.
This is Claire's with one BIG whale on the back, two smaller ones
on the front.
