A Postcard from Shetland

Over the weekend I've been knitting up one of my designs in a different colour way. It's the Home Sweet Home Tea Cosy seen in the image below on the table to the left (with yours truly in the studio). As you can see, the original tea cosy is red, white and grey. The new one is multicoloured, the more the merrier! I'll be posting some pictures at a later date when it's completed.

Earlier the previous week I knew I'd be short of a few colours for the project, so I placed an order with Jamieson's of Shetland, one of my favourite yarn companies.The parcel of yarn arrived and also contained a postcard from Shetland with a lovely sheep advertising Shetland Wool Week 2014  (4th - 12th October).

You can find the website for the 9 day event here, Shetland Wool Week.


While browsing all about the week I came across the latest edition of the online publication 60 North.  There's an article about last years wool event which I can recommend reading, it starts on page 22 and is titled The Best Kept Secret in Britain. I would love to go to wool week but I know I'm not going to be able this year. I'll have to settle for reading about it. Here's a screen capture of part of the article.
