So Beth is back from her Vacation, and as usual she had a few blankets to donate. This one she used the wave pattern and I love the colour combination she used for this one.
This blanket, Beth designed the pattern and if you see it up close you would think she used a variegated yarn to knit this blanket. But she used a few colours to make it up. Great Job Beth,
Another amazing colour combination and blanket.
And this blue blanket, Beth said she used two strains of yarn to knit this blanket.
Her the sherbet pattern in pink from Beth.
Another gorgeous blanket from Beth. Beth they are all beautiful!
Here Marg crocheted the (CTC) blanket and it looks great Marg.
Here is another (CTC) blanket from Marg. Beautiful!
This is one of my favorite pattern, little miss sunshine baby blanket. So easy and it works up very quickly.
Another one of my fvas, the Larkfoot pattern. It could be done in three or four colours also and will look amazing.
Well I would like to thank you all for your time and great work.
The ladies at Amica at Unionville have been busy! We have a new member, Lily, who brings her dog Max along to keep us all company. She's also already made her first donation of sweaters for children, all made without looking at a pattern! We're happy to give the ladies at Amica another social event to look forward to, and they like knowing that their work will end up where it will be appreciated and used every day.
These are the beautiful items made by Lily:
Christine made 2 more hats:
We have another lovely baby blanket from Muriel:
And from Monica, a baby blanket and hat set:

We now have the meeting calendar for 2017 available on the blog! You can get to it by clicking the 'Meeting Calendar' link under the Pages header on the left side of the blog page. Hope to see you soon!
As you may know from previous posts, we have a small group of ladies at Amica at Unionville who have been knitting for us for about a year. They get together every two weeks with Monica and Jane from Casting Off the Cold to socialize and do some knitting, and have been dubbed the 'Kneat Knitters' for the Amica social events calendar. The ladies have been working throughout January to make some of the much-needed baby blankets and a few other items. Here are photos from our February 11 meeting donation:
A hat and scarf from Christine
And a baby blanket and hat set from Muriel
Monica also had a blanket ready to donate. This is a diagonal 'dish cloth' blanket with patches of colour worked in.
Thanks, ladies. We have already heard from some of the knitters that they have items ready to donate at our next meeting on February 25.
