Last week, myself and the Rams and Yowes blanket, took a trip North.
The rams were returning to the place where they began . . .
. . . the Shetland wool from which they were knitted was sorted and graded here . . .
. . . and now they are home again.
If you have the good fortune to be near Lerwick, my blanket is on display at Jamieson & Smith HQ. If not, you could always get a kit to knit your own.
Meanwhile, I spent my days happily at the Shetland Archives, doing some work for the next issue of Textisles, which will be out next month. Surely there are few libraries that can boast a setting as lovely as this?
A piece of me is left in Shetland. I’ll be back soon.
