Hello everyone, today is the first day of the Edinburgh Yarn Festival marketplace, Derek and Sandra are there (if you are going we can be found at stand K8) but Oliver is also down because he has been announced at this year’s Shetland Wool Week Patron!
We are very excited of course as Oliver was instrumental in organising the first Shetland Wool Week 10 years ago as J&S founded the event. It has gone from strength to strength every year so for the 10th anniversary, it’s great to see such an important figure in the Shetland Wool Industry as the patron.
Oliver’s design – the Roadside Beanie has been launched today and you can find kits here on the website and the pattern here on the Wool Week website. The design features common motifs for a Shetlander, sheep and fishing boats! To learn more about the Roadside Beanie have a read of the pattern.
We are extremely proud of Oliver and look forward to seeing all the Roadside Beanies this year. Happy Knitting!
Fantastic to here Oliver Henry is chosen
Can’t wait to knit my hat and get up there in Sept
Wonderful choice, what a wealth of experience and knowledge. Well done
Well done Oliver! Good luck with the show. Love from Sasha in Wales X
So excited to knit this! Thank-you!
How wonderfully fitting to have Oliver as Patron on such a momentous anniversary! Congratulations Oliver and what a wonderful design you’ve created representing all Shetland views.
