We begun the day on Saturday with a Fair Isle class with Hazel Tindall.

IMG_6588 hazel claswsHazel 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.

    Ooh, what a clever thing to hide the decreases for the yoke in the pine tree motif!!! Is there a pattern for that around somewhere perhaps…?

    A year in planning and everything comes together as we all hoped it would. A great start to Shetland Wool Week and good luck with all the events in progress.
    Thanks to everyone involved for making this an international event which is on virtually every true knitter’s bucket list!
