So I am back from Edinburgh!! The yarn festival was brilliant, it was so busy and I got to see so many of my woolly pals, I even felt a bit starstruck sometimes! I am used to people coming to Shetland so it was nice to be out there myself and seeing everyone. The picture above is our stand on the Shetland Wool Week space, you can see we had lots of stuff for people interested in Wool Week to take away..
I wore my Puffin jumper (seen above with Alix – thanks for the picture!) on the Friday and I got lots of compliments on it, that is one of the most satisfying part of a woolly event, everyone appreciates what you are wearing! On Saturday I wore my newest project – a crofthoose yoke!
So as well as my hat I have secretly been trying this idea, I am working on the pattern and of course I will post it here when it is available – along with better photos! It will be my first foray into multi-sized patterns and what better to start with than one of my favourite things to make – a yoke! I had a number of people commenting on it at Edinburgh which had made me feel really good and excited about releasing it.
I cant really describe what this weekend was like, I was totally overwhelmed – in the best possible way – with the feedback I got about my design for wool week, about this blog.. lots of things. Thank you to anyone who spoke to me, messaged me and commented on my last post. I’m amazed how many projects are on the ravelry page for the hat already and how many pictures are on instagram under the #crofthoosehat !
I did do some purchasing.. ahem.. but I’m hoping to show that to you later this week…!
Speak soon xx
