Winter Woollies KAL 2015

We have had a busy few weeks since we came back after the Christmas break, so one thing I haven’t had a chance to do is reveal the winner of the Winter Woollies KAL we had towards the end of last year. If you want to read more about what we did, see here and here.

So after a lot of deliberation we choose Bev’s project as our winner!

Bev actually used all the shades in her Hat and Mittens, we only required 5 or more to be used but we thought she put them together so well in her finished project, look at that lovely corrugated rib! For her prize we sent her a copy of our book Knit Real Shetland and a selection of 2ply Jumper Weight in her choice.

If you want to see some more examples of what people made, have a look at the finished objects thread on Ravelry here. If you have any ideas of different kinds of Knit a Longs you would like us to do, leave a comment here or send us an email: mailroom@shetlandwoolbrokers.co.uk we had great fun doing it and would love to do more!

Happy Knitting xx

    I am so impressed with the winning design! The colours are brilliant and the way they are graduated down the spines is lovely and gives a unique look to the collection.
    It looks complicated to me (but as you know I am a Luddite when it comes to knitting) but if that collection was released as a pattern /kit I am sure it would be very popular.
    Happy new knitting year to all and thanks for your support for Real Shetland Wool.

    Reblogged this on curtthesheep and commented:
    Wonderful collection of hat, scarf and gloves!

    I reblogged the blog and I said it was a wonderful collection, hat scarf and gloves….the scarf was wishful thinking! I think a kit or patterns for the collection would be very popular!
    Best wishes

    Gosh, what a lovely project and use of colours!!! They just pop against the white background. A feast for the eyes. Bev did a wonderful job combining design and colour. Congrats! Whoever selected the yarns for this project chose warm and cool colours at the same time. Wonderful! Now I am off to look at the other projects submitted. Thanks for the inspiration all around.
