wool week day 7

today we had our last class in the shop, and it was a weaving workshop with Emma Blain of Aamos Designs.

using an embroidery hoop Emma had the ladies weaving in no time! They were making a small coaster or a potstand. It just goes to show you dont need a big loom and lots of setting up to be weaving. Emma was saying the same principle can be used to make mats and rugs using a hula hoop.

So that marks the end of Shetland Wool Week 2012.

It has been a brilliant week!

    It’s been a great week! Learned, saw and did a lot. I’m very happy I was part of this happening!

    And I’m especially glad with the very last picture. I didn’t get around to go upstairs in the Böd of Gremista, so I hadn’t seen this lace sample.
    BUT…. I dó recognize this as the 3 patterns worked in the Weddingshawl on display in the Shetland Museum and Archives: the red and white weddingshawl. The bottom pattern is used in the red bands of the shawl and the top and centre pattern are used alternately.

    I’m going to swatch those samples!!! (I’ve used the bottom pattern in my design for Jamieson & Smith: the Shetland Bound shawl).

    Happy knitting!

    Hoi Stefanie,

    Helaas, de trui is al weg volgens mij. Anders had je die zeker mogen hebben. Ik begrijp dat Jeroen pas laat aankomt? Dan kletsen we woensdag lekker bij.

    Hoe is het met je moeder? Het is niet niks om iemand dood te vinden.

    Tot woensdag, Anja
