Hello! I cant believe we are already on Wednesday, things have been nice and busy in J&S so far for Shetland Wool Week! We have been blessed with lovely weather too which makes things feel even better.
On Monday we only had one class in the afternoon, Elizabeth Johnston of Shetland Handspun was in doing her ever popular Shetland Lace class, Elizabeth is a brilliant and calm teacher so before long everyone was planning out and knitting their lace..
On Tuesday morning we had another Fair Isle class with Hazel Tindall
As always it was a great class and soon everyone was knitting their bookmarks
In the afternoon we had a lace class with the brilliant designer Ysolda Teaque, Ysolda always come up to Wool Week so we were so happy to have her first class at J&S
Ysolda shared some of her tips and tricks for planning lace motifs within knitting and everyone then charted out and knit some lace patterns.
You can see from the photos we do all the classes at Wool Week in the shop so these kinds of classes are great. They give people a taste of Shetland style knitting and the chance to take classes with some brilliant designers but they are all about having fun and enjoying the atmosphere of Wool Week in Shetland.
Ill be back soon with more pictures from Jamieson & Smith at Wool Week!
