Hello! Thank you all for the lovely comments about my trip to Iceland, at the moment it seems a million miles away.. I am preparing for the Shetland Arts and Craft Associations annual Christmas Craft Fair. This involves a lot of knitting. Since I work pretty much full time my knitting is resigned to evenings and weekends and I am feeling pretty tired! It will all be worth it though, this is my third year doing the Craft Fair which is quite exciting and does make me quite proud of my peerie business. I wish I kept a note of how many crofthouses I have made, I would love to know how many are out there..The furthest in the world that I know of are Australia and Canada.. and one is en route to America as I speak!
I have tried to refine a few of my crofthouse designs and also do some new things (which I’ll show you soon!) so I’m feeling quite happy with how everything is going. I have a huge amount of wool.. so the trickiest part is choosing colours!
All this machine knitting has made me long for some hand knitting and also in Shetland – its gotten chilly! so to appease this urge quickly I have knit myself a fun hat using chunky icelandic wool.. knit up in one night it has hit the spot! Ill try and share it as soon as I can.
I think this is my favourite photo.. In case you wondered there are 174 rows per cushion..
Speak soon! Ella xx
