A Scarf Saturday

Last Saturday the Handspinners and Weavers Guild of Victoria in conjunction with Craft Victoria organised two workshops -

- Spinning fat singles, dyeing the skein and knitting a scarf on your hand.... and ...

- Knitting a scarf straight from unspun roving/fleece, at the same time adding bits of material, beads and locks of mohair or wool.

I was there as a general gopher for the morning and in the afternoon helped the students knit their scarf.

The photo shows one of my scarves that I knitted straight from unspun wool/mohair roving. I added English Leicester locks throughout the scarf.

We had a wonderful day - the students had a great time and the tutors and gophers enjoyed themselves.
