admittedly, i am not too fond about the expression 'brag' but that is the word the guild members use when members show their latest projects.
During the Fibre Break Away in September we also had one "brag"evening (instead of the originally planned fashion show). This is what i had to show:

The gilet is constructed from several squares woven on the diagonal frame with merino that i had dyed and spun before. the edges are knitted. It was a bit of a gamble as i didn't have a lot of this particular yarn - i have about 10 cm left over from the multicoloured yarn and a little bit more of the blue. Phew - just made it :-)

What I’ve seen coming from the Fibre Break Away has been so lovely. You must all have had a great and remarkably productive time! This gilet is super, I love the highlighted blue cloud effect. Really very pretty, you have such great ideas for constructing lovely clothes using the diagonal squares. Is that a card woven band as the neck detail? I can’t do card weaving I get my warp totally twisted.
