Wish you all a good start in to the winter!
I am still very inspired of my knitting vacation and I am trying out all sorts of technics and patterns.
I re-organized my room and I have even finished couple of projects. The first one , a cardigan is in Båhus-style, the second jumper is about the second garment I ever got right. It fits, not like most of my work, too big, too short or too tight…
The wrist warmers are very much inspired of Fair Isle.
I was lucky to have vacation in Burrastow house during the Shetland Wool Week with ten knitting interested women from USA, Canada, England and Holland. Gudrun Johnston and Mary-Jane Mucklestone (both sooo unbeleavable great designers) organized the week with ever so varying program. Here a small collection of the week: Hazel Tindall, a master of Fair Isle Knitting showed us her work! Gudrun Burrastow House in the evening We learned to dye yarn! The woolman, Oliver from Jamieson and Smith Tour in the Jamieson’s Wool Mill I started to find color combinations for a sweater everywhere My new friends, Brenda, Marianne and Holly 🙂 Did you ever see the movie Waking Ned? Driving back homeI say thank you for all those great women and Pierre (our fantastic cook) who made my vacation unforgettable.
