Waas Show 2018

Hello everyone, so bright and early on Saturday morning me and Sandra headed out to Waas to have a look at the Show and judge the Colourbox competition. This is only the 3rd year we have had the colourbox at the Walls Show so it is a bit smaller but still has beautiful entries:

We’ve had a few questions about the Colourbox Shades so for a reminder the 2018 colours were: 3, 53, 66, 72, 87, 366, fc37 and fc56.

Once we had done our bit we enjoyed wandering around looking at the animals and other entries. While we were driving out it was pretty rainy but luckily it was dry and sunny on the Westside (which is quite often the way!) so we had a great time.

Like all shows in Shetland the knitwear is to an extremly high standard, there was quite alot of lace but also Fair Isle. The judges had a tough job!

There are still a couple of shows  still to be but thats the last with the Colourbox for this year, next years colours have been chosen so we are looking forward to 2019 already!

Happy Knitting!

    Beautiful garments and lace! I can’t wait for SWW so I can see all of this in person. Thanks so much for the photos – especially the pups! The photo of the tri-color border, with the look of pure joy, is lifting my spirits this morning! Cheers!

    Lovely knitwear. I hope it will be no display at Waas days in Wool Week. It would be lovely to see it for real. Thanks for another great write up. These are much appreciated.

    You can also develop into a resource others, however.
    The content of literature doesn’t always have to relate directly into
    a writing subjects either.
