More Classes

The last couple of classes before Wool Week have been great fun, this included another group visiting with Bodil Munch from Denmark, we spoke about colourwork and I was impressed by this use of orange among the blues.

A group with Amy Detjen and Janine Bajus where myself and Donna Smith spoke about colour and steeking. As someone who does not normally steek myself, Donna took the lead on that and we both spoke about the colourwork aspects. Thanks ladies for having us and I just love my badge, I'm certainly feeling like one of the gang!

This month has had me making jumpers (and a couple of cardigans!) most days. Here's a few pictures...

Shetland Wool Week starts tomorrow!

I am so excited to meet all of our visitors and to share what I can as I go around during the week. Click Here to find out where I'll be throughout the week.

The annual is a highlight for me, and I'm so excited to share my contribution. Banksfloor Mitts. The inspiration for these quick mitts came from the soft colours found in the wild flowers around the cliffs in Shetland. Keeping in mind the traditional Fair Isle design characteristics of symmetry and short floats, Terri created the clover-like motif and incorporated traditional diamond and heart shapes. On the palm of the mitt she was able to get creative while keeping the area hard-wearing. Terri loves the leafy vine effect created by swapping the foreground and background colours. The simplicity of this pattern's fingerless finish and calming colours make for a quick, relaxing knit, just like the walks we enjoy around the coastline in Shetland.

This also means that the Triple Tone Circular Scarf is now available online!

Visit the Ravelry Store to download a copy of the pattern. I have been so happy with how it has been received this past year. I designed it to be a good place to start with stranded colourwork, with only three colours required, and as long as they all contrast with each other it will work, and the small motifs mean you can easily add or remove repeats to get the length or size you want! With no plain rows throughout the main section, you also get a lot of practice knitting with two colours in a row. If you try the pattern with your own colours or editing the size, send me an email or tag me on Instagram, I'd love to see!
