Winter Woollies KAL – so far…

We are now less than a month away from the end of the Winter Woollies KAL, and we have been so pleased with the amount of orders going out all over the world!! I thought I’d share some of the finished projects so far..

To see some of the pieces people have already finished have a look at the finished objects thread in our Ravelry group here. Theres also lots of chat and discussion in the general Winter Woollies KAL thread and people are sharing some of their progress shots, you can see that here

The KAL runs until the 15th December, we are loving seeing all the things people are coming up with so keep it up! The weather has turned in Shetland and on Saturday we had our first bit of Snow, in true Shetland form it is windy and rainy today but it was nice while it lasted and we are beginning to get very thankful for our woollens at Jamieson & Smith, til next time,

Happy Knitting!

    I think the shades are perfect and the garments work so well in these unique yarns. A subtle blend of contemporary design and Shetland heritage simply works. I continue to be impressed by the skill of the designers and knitters who develop these products.
    I am biased as always but as long as we keep innovating the future of Real Shetland wool is assured. Thank you to everyone from the crofters who grow the wool through to the manufacturers and the final customer your support is priceless!
