The topic for the meeting was Colours and picking a palette. One of our members gave an inspiring talk on using a colour wheel and making colour winds. Colour winds consist of winding various band widths of yarn onto rectangles of card and getting a feel for your colour choices. I will add some photo's at a later date. A good way of choosing colours comes from pictures, greeting cards etc and making a colour wind from them.
I will definitely use this for future projects.
I've at last taken photo's of the Gossamer jacket I made. Pattern source is from Mary Anne Ogers Website. I'm very pleased with this Jacket except I did not position pattern correctly on needle bed and have ended up making the shawl collar in stocking stitch. The lace pattern should continue on the shawl collar. I will certainly make this one again and hopefully my brain will be in the correct gear!!! Appologies about the rubbish in the background. I will try to do better next time
