We began Friday morning with another Shetland lace class with Elizabeth Johnston of Shetland Handspun.. another class full of concentration..
In the afternoon Deborah was back, doing a bit of drop spindling!
Before you knew it and working with raw fleece everybody was spinning away!
Everyday this week, as he has every year, Oliver has given his talk on what we do at Jamieson & Smith in the Woolstore, i popped in on Friday to take a few photos. There were lots of people there listening, as there has been every day!
Ill be back tomorrow with more pictures from the final weekend of Shetland Wool Week, it has been fantastic!
So we began Wednesday with another class on Fair Isle by Hazel Tindall, again it went down a treat!
In the afternoon we had the first of our lace classes with Elizabeth Johnson of Shetland Handspun, as usual once things got going this was one of the quietest classes.. lots of concentrating going on!
We stayed open after five last night to host the Shetland launch of Gudrun Johnstons newest book, The Shetland Trader Book 2!
Gudruns new book has 10 patterns, a number using J&S yarns, 3 of which you see here! We sold out of the book after a couple of hours and it was great to see how many people came to support Gudrun
Today we began the day with something a bit different for us, a fleece preparation class with Deborah Gray.
This involved Deborah showing the group how to prepare raw fleece for spinning, really interesting!
And this afternoon another class from Mary Henderson, this time of steeking! aka cutting your knitting! (not as scary as it sounds!!)
Mary had the group knit a ‘Mug Hug’ mug warmer, a nice small project perfect for steeking!
Another great few days, I headed to the Museum tonight to listen to Hazel Tindall and Stella Ruhe’s talk on Knitting in the 1960s and Dutch Ganseys, really interesting! Ill be back on Saturday with a round up of the last few days of Shetland Wool Week at J&S.
