My main contributions will be a hand woven wool plaid blanket, some hand spun yarn, maybe some knitted items and there is a student level violin I may also add. Wayne has also be contributing a set of hand tied fishing flies.
WOW, Anne. Things already are piling up at your end. Time for me to get the lead out! :0)
I am looking forward to hearing about the committee. I have a couple of ideas and questions to share when the time comes.
Here is a CROCHETED socks pattern if anyone is interested. Used “self-striping” yarn. Instructions and photos are attached.

Basic Crocheted Socks (November 2016)
Is that sock weight yarn or heavier Vince?
The yarn is KROY for socks. It is a little heavier than “super fine.” Just use, as is, right off the skein. (NOT double stranded as I previously had thought. Oops.)
ONE skein ($12) will make one sock = TWO skeins for a pair of socks ($24).
I will be doing some weaving a scarf or shawl for the auction as well as some knitted items.
CALLING ALL MAKERS . . .
We are looking for QUALITY home-made items for the “Silent Auction” to be held in Fall 2023.
Knitting. Crocheting. Quilting. Woodworking. Other?
Feel free to post ideas and comments. Let’s turn some down-time summer projects into cash for the orchestra!
*Kudos to ANNE for planting the seed of this idea for auction items.
