Good, bad or ugly, send your pics to email@example.com (or to Alison) and we will post them here so we can continue to enjoy our craft together.
As seems typical these days, the jumper I've been knitting went to the recipient the day before the meeting, but this time I remembered to take a photo.
A fairly basic tuck stitch, but with the knit side as the right side. Based on StitchWorld 306, which in the book is pale green, yellow and pink blocks with black/grey dividers up the entire pattern. I had stronger colours, but then it was a bit much... so I did more of the jumper in plain dark green. Thomas had picked his own colours (wanted a green jumper with other colours - but needed persuading that pink chenille possibly wasn't the best thing to include!
I'm pleased with it. It's in 2 strands of 2/30, MT5. The body of the jumper is fine (fine but 'feels' good, which is what I wanted as we move towards spring) but I think with hindsight I could have done with a slightly firmer ribbing at the bottom (cuffs are fine).

Helen missed our meeting on Monday but has sent a photo of something she has made for our virtual 'show-and-tell'.
I have attached a photo of something I made this month. It is a square of double crochet in DK wool with the pattern cross stitched on top, again in DK yarn.
I've attached the photo of it in position, with a slightly larger version just of the square.

Jean has sent me a photograph of a cardigan she has made for her great-granddaughter (as she said, just a little late for Christmas). Isn't it lovely? I particularly like the button band. Jean has also sent a photo of the card she used.
