Hello and welcome,
This is my very first post and I hope you enjoy seeing my Fair Isle knitting which I have designed and knitted up myself and shall share with you in this blog.
I live in Shetland and I am a keen hand knitter, especially of Fair Isle patterns. Shetland has a very strong history of kniting and of using the pure Shetland wool from the Shetland sheep.
I love the creativity of Fair Isle patterns.It is exciting as you experiment with the vast colour palette available in the pure Shetland jumper weight and lace wool. I also love the variety of reactions I get from family and friends as they see my work taking shape- such as “that is very dull”.
Here is a taste of some of my knitting designs which I have made over the last couple of years which I recently had my neice and nephew model.
I really hope you enjoy seeing my work and enjoy!
