Finally some Shetland knitting


On our recent visit to Shetland I was able to purchase Shetland wool to knit some articles for me.

The first thing I am going to knit is Sheep Heid by Kate Davies.  I have knitted several Owlet jumpers which are also designed by Kate Davies but this time I am knitting a beanie.I bought the wool and pattern at Jamieson and Smith in Lerwick and now I am ready to start.  There are nine different shades of wool in the pattern so I am looking forward to knitting this.  It will be a good practice for when I knit the fair isle yoke cardigan for me.

I have knitted the rib band so now for the pattern.
