Waas Show

Hello! last Saturday dawned a bit damper as me (Ella) and Sandra headed out to Waas for the Walls Show.


Spirits were not dampended however and we soon got to work (after a cup of tea and a bacon roll!) judging the colourbox. This is our first year having the colourbox at Walls so there wasn’t too many entries but next year I’m sure there will be more!

As with all shows in Shetland there were plenty of animals to be seen..






and lovely knitwear..

We weren’t able to stay until everything was fully set up but I’m glad we got a few pictures! Thankfully it dried up and the rest of the day was much better than the morning.  We were amazed on the way back to town how lovely the heather is at the moment in Shetland..


You can see why we have so many heathery shades in our Jumper Weight range (FC55, FC56. FC14, 87, 133 to name a few!) FC11 and FC12 are good matches for the grass too!

There are a few more shows still to come (Yell and Unst) but we probably won’t make it to those so I hope you’ve enjoyed our trip around the mainland Shetland Shows!

Happy Knitting 🙂 xx

    Thank you for sharing these pics with us Ella. That finely knitted hap is beautiful and I love that yellow yoked cardigan – am knitting a red one atm, shade 9097, but am now wishing it was yellow! Our moors in Derbyshire are turning purple just now as well. Must check out those J&S shades you mentioned.
    Regards Jane

    That Third Place finish would be a Grand Prize everywhere outside of the Shetlands. I feel like a duffer golfer comparing himself to Justin Rose. The Shetland lamb is adorable (but you knew that; that’s why you snapped the photo). I loved the black/grey/ white mittens with the norwegian stars. Thanks so very much for sharing your wonderful Waas Show.

  4. The pictures of the shows have been really interesting, and am agreeing with Sophie on the incredible workmanship in the third place prize…the quality of the knitting must be so difficult to judge when it all looks so beautiful. I think if I went to one of these shows I’d be the lady trying to leave with woolly items shoved up my jumper along with a couple of those very cute lambs.
