Shetland Wool Week was busy but brilliant, it gets bigger and better every year. Here are some photos from the eyes of me – a Shetlander working throughout the week.

  1. As always a lovely treat to see this Ella, felt like I was there again. Roll on next year. I also managed to catch up with your and Kate’s trunk show. So enjoyed that. I am also a machine knitter so found those bits interesting too but I am a tension fiend!!!! About to get started on a MK jumper, HK yoke from wool I have dyed with local meadowsweet. I think I have to make myself start……

  2. your pictures of the knitting were wonderful to see…..thanks Ella…of course it would have been marvellous to be there…maybe next year.

    • Thank you so much for providing this information. I have wanted to attend your past two Festivals, but just hasn’t worked. So, I truly treasure what I have not yet attended! Diane 💟
