On a beautiful Easter Monday night Me (Ella) and Sandra headed down to the South End of Shetland to meet with the local SWRI group who had invited Sandra down to talk and show some of her beautiful knitting.
We arrived at the hall, and while the ladies had their monthly meeting we judged as visiting speakers some of their arts and crafts. Once we had done that we layed out as much of Sandras knitting as we could fit in her car (shes prolific!) Unfortunately I didnt get any pictures of her giving her talk as I was helping her hold up things to show the ladies but afterwards Sandra invited everybody to come up and have a look and chat about knitting
We were very pleased to see a Chunky Fair Isle Yoke Cardigan which Sandra designed a few years ago, on this lady on the right. We love her colour choices, Haar as the main shade with Kryn Mylk and Fuschia as the contrast shades, it reminds us of Rasberry Ripple Ice Cream!
she spoke about all her designs for Jamieson & Smith, such as the Antarctica Set, , Tobys Coat and lots more but she also had some of her own family’s knitting including the shawl which was knit for her as a baby!
Well done to Sandra for a great talk, it was so great to see so much of her knitting in one place!
