Members Gallery

 

Our members are always producing quality pieces of knitting. Until we have the opportunity to print photos of them in colour in Knit Together, we are providing this page to showcase the work of our members.

Submit your items by e-mailing a photo scanned at 100 dpi resolution or lower in .jpg file format to Canadian Guild of Knitters with the subject "Members' Gallery".

This page is a place for our members to display their work, however, in every issue of Knit Together, we do yarn reviews, which come with black and white photos. We thought it would be good to make colour photographs of the yarn samples available. Scroll down or click on yarn samples to see colour photos of our review samples.

 

Here is the colour photo of the Hummingbird Garden Vest, designed by Leanne Dyck of Olavia's on Mayne Island, British Columbia.

RJ Smith of Picton, Ontario is a 'free form' knitter.  He created this triangular afghan without a pattern.

Dorothy Wood, of Salmon Arm, BC used Noro Silk Garden yarn to make her version of the Pieces sweater from the August 2004 issue of Knit Together.  Dorothy likes the pattern so much, she plans to make it again.

The pattern can be obtained from the designer, Leanne Dyck of Olavia's Hand Knitting Patterns, www.oknitting.com. Members can order the August 2004 issue of Knit Together from Canadian Guild of Knitters."

Since Dorothy made this piece, she has unravelled it and made another sweater from it!

This project was worked on by knitters in Ontario’s cottage country over the past year. Each square as designed and knit to show a picturesque scene in Muskoka. It was displayed during August at Muskoka Yarn Connection in Bracebridge, then donated to our local hospital for a draw. Some of the designs are in 3D! Pictured with the quilt is Michele Meadows of Muskoka Yarn Connection.
