I'm one lucky person/knitter and I know it. In a few hours I'll be on a plane heading to London, then after an overnight stay I will be on my way to Lerwick, Shetland via Abderdeen. It's a long trip but so worth it to be back in Shetland. Shetland is beautiful, remote, and for the next week or more, full of knitters, designers, authors, spinners and obsessed fiber people from all over the world for Shetland Wool Week..
There are live web cams in Shetland and if you take a look you will likely see a knitter or two. The most likely webcams to see knitters are Market Cross and the Tourist Office. Keep in mind that there may be a time difference for you. For example, for me (mountain time), Shetland is 7 hours ahead.
I'm planning to blog about Wool Week and the visit to Shetland.....as well as the Knitting & Stitching Show (Ally Pally) later in the trip if I have wifi.
