We begun the day on Saturday with a Fair Isle class with Hazel Tindall.
Hazel had the ladies knit a bookmark which meant they were doing Fair Isle and steeking in a small project! This way there was a good chance the project would be finished within the time of the class.
On Sunday we had the Opening Ceremony for the week, Wool Week has gotten so big that the ceremony was held in the Bowls Hall at the Clickimin, the hall was beautifully layed out.
As always there was a lovely Fair Isle Cake!
There was some musical entertainment from the Shetland Fiddlers who went to the Edinburgh Military Tattoo, they were wearing their beautiful outfits designed by Shetland Designer Neila Nell
Wool Week Patron Donna Smith cut the Cake
And we were treated to the muscial talents of Felicity Ford..
As well as a speech from Oliver..
And Q and A’s with some of Shetlands Textile elites, more speeches and funs..
We’ll be back throughout the week with more Wool happenings at J&S!
Til then.. happy knitting!
