The annual pot luck

The sky cleared and the sun managed to finally come out for our annual pot luck held at Anne's beautiful house. The food was great - a huge BBQ'd salmon and an incredible orange and rosemary cake were highlights.  The show and tell was inspiring.  Take a look at Karin's hand dyed, hand spun, hand knit, jacket of many colours that she designed herself!

And look at the colours that Pauline achieved for her dyed sock blank.  And Heather's colour gamp which when felted became a vest for a grandchild.

Betty made a awesome friendship blanket was made with woven sample squares. And here is some stunning alpaca/wool and alpaca/firestar yarn made by Kathy.
There are more pictures on the web, just click here for a slideshow of the evening.
