Show & Tell during the Pandemic

As we cannot meet during the CoVid19 crisis, we're sharing the fruits of our machine knitting efforts online. While the pandemic is forcing us all to stay at home, it's the perfect opportunity to progress your knitting.

Good, bad or ugly, send your pics to mappknitnatter@gmail.com (or to Alison) and we will post them here so we can continue to enjoy our craft together.

Children's jumpers from Helen

 Helen has sent some photographs of children's jumpers she has made from cone-ends of Bramwell's 4ply. A real stash-busting exercise!

Show & Tell - Helen's crochet

 Helen has been really prolific, completely a lot of these... and aren't they lovely? My crochet skills are nowhere near this level...😀

Show & Tell - Jean's latest creations

Jean sent me these a while ago (before our last Zoom meeting). We did see them during the meeting but I have taken a long time to get around to publishing them.

An Elaine Cater image

This first one (the yellow/mustard one on my monitor) is an Elaine Cater pattern but Jean has changed the neck, substituting a 'worm' edging. Very effective.

The second one (below) is knitted with 4 strands of Smedley's yarn. It was started back in November and had just been washed when Jean photographed it.

It's really lovely to see what people have been working on. Please do keep sending in the photos and I'll do my best to get them up here a bit more quickly!
