July 2021 ACTIVITIES – WHAT’S ON YOUR NEEDLES?
Show and Share is currently a virtual activity and includes Knit@Nite photos.
To participate, send your photos* and descriptions to Kerry Nare – either via text message (preferred) or email (Kerry’s phone number and direct email address can be found in the Guild Directory.) Image file sizes should be as large as possible for clarity (ideally greater than 500 kb please.) Include a description of your project, pattern and designer name, yarn used, how you came to knit your project, and any other information you wish viewers to know, and when texting be sure to include your name! Items received after July 31st will be included in August’s Virtual Show and Share.
* Did you know? Smart phones have much better cameras than iPads or tablets, so if you have a choice, take your photos with your phone. You can text photos directly from your phone, no need to download first.
Click on any photo in the Gallery to enlarge or start a slide show, then scroll down to read details regarding the photos. For convenience, new photos will be added at the beginning of the gallery as they arrive, so check back periodically.
After you view this month’s photos, check out the new compendium of Guild Photo Galleries, found on the drop-down menu under the Guild Info tab.
Details regarding project photos
Photo (1): Sydnie Wauson – Mauvelous Shawl
“Mauvelous designed by Lesley Anne Robinson. The Mauvelous shawl is my first successful brioche project! It was worked along with a Ravelry group called A Place to KAL My Own that organizes KAL events throughout the year, often with prizes and/or a discount for the pattern price. The light pink yarn in this shawl was a mystery ball acquired at 2020 Stash Sale.”
Photo (1): Virginia Wilson – Daytripper Cardigan
“The Daytripper Cardigan, by Mary Jane Mucklestone, from Modern Daily Knitting Field Guide 17. Lettlopi Icelandic wool (main color, Lagoon, was a stash sale find) The mega colorwork was such fun, and went quickly. Being part of a knitalong provided the incentive to complete the project, avoiding the typical two to five year dormancy period. Completed in only 23 days!”

“My first attempt at fair isle. This slouch hat pattern is called Elska by Ysolda Teague. I purchased a kit using 6 colors of Jamieson & Smith yarn. The kit may no longer be available but the pattern is on Ravelry. I’ll be sending this hat to my sister in NYC.”
