You know I always say I am rubbish at colourwork and “cant do” Fair Isle…..?
A little look inside a family treasure trove that I did not know existed, until recently…
an example of the first example of stranded knitting found in Shetland. Some call it Fair Isle, some call it colourwork, but let’s not muse too deeply upon that this time, shall we?
some thoughts on how you just cannot lay claim to some traditions.
This episode I learn I do not have the creeping finger; I delve into my post bag and also wax knitical about my Fair isle night class
I have been very drawn to the allure and charm of a circular yoke. Indulge me as I explore some stand out examples… There might be a giveaway too!
Even though I have never particularly enjoyed the creeping darkness at this time of year – from long, light Shetland summer evenings to unending darkness in winter – I do love the colours that surround us in autumn
