June 2020 Show & Tell

We have work from four weavers and one knitter this month. Since our meeting is virtual, thanks for the photos and captions goes to the artists.

Sherron: This month I took Chris Acton’s class on plain weave. I put on a 3yd warp of 5/2 cotton set @ 12 epi. I had so much fun playing with a variety of wefts. Thanks, Chris, for expanding my plain weave!

This is a baby blanket Margaret wove for Guild member Pam’s new granddaughter. The weave is an 8-shaft overshot woven in cotton and cottolin. Note the different pattern on the back. She also wove a small doll blanket or burp/changing cloth to match.

Mary: This is a baby blanket made of 90 pin loom squares using Lily’s Sugar n’ Cream cotton yarn. It is for a baby boy due any time now! The squares that look like plaid are actually variegated yarn that patterned on their own to look like a plaid.

Sue: I knit this baby sweater for my newest great niece. (She’s a cutie!)
