It's no secret among those who know me that I'm more than a little enamored with everything to do with knitting in Shetland. I feel very fortunate to have enjoyed two wonderful visits to this fabulous place. It's not just the knitting that draws me in, but the people and scenery, too. I just like it all so much.
I have a LOT of Shetland wool - and some Shetland-type wool, such as that from Harrisville Designs. Some of the wool I bought myself. Most of it, however, was given to me by very, very generous friends: P, M, J and P. Thank you ladies. I've have many projects that I want to make and look forward to jumping right in after the new year.
I saw this short video about sweaters from Fair Isle, one of the Shetland Islands. I found it to be very interesting. By the way, did you know that the island of Fair Isle has a population of only about 55.
I'll have a little more about Fair Isle in my next post and well as a finished object.
