hello, thank you for all the great comments on my last post! It was a great conference and really made me think a lot about Shetland and Shetland knitting, yes I can do it even more! You might have seen on my instagram or the Shetland Wool Week blog that last week I was announced as this years Wool Week patron!! I’m going down to Edinburgh this weekend for the Yarn Festival with the Shetland Wool Week team so if you are going and you see me then come and say hi, It will be the first chance to see my design for this years pattern and I’m very excited and nervous to see what people think.

Ill be back very soon to show you more.. :)

  7. HI Ella,
    Congratulations on being this year’s Shetland Wool Week Patron, I completely agree with everything Rae has said, I love reading about your own knitting on your blog and sighing over your collection of gorgeous knitwear.
    It’s always interesting to read your views and thoughts on Shetland knitting and I can’t wait to see pictures of your pattern.

  8. congratulations, Ella! One day I will get to Scotland and participate in one (or both) of these events – until then, I will have to enjoy from afar. Just rec’d my “tribe” magazine in the mail and looking forward to hearing more from you about all of the wonderful wooly things you encounter!

  9. I think you are the perfect choice and will do just fine! When I vivited Shetland in 2014 you were so sweet and helpful at J&S. What an exciting opportunity for you, congratulations!

  10. Excellent! Congrats and you will be great!

  11. Yay congrats! Can’t wait to see your design. Well done!
