My latest Shetland Hap...

I have almost finished the Old Shale section of my latest Shetland is knitted on circular Knit Pro Rosewood needles and I increase the needles size as the shawl grows - this is necessary if you wish to maintain a pattern that runs all the way round without any obvious corners as in traditional designs.


  1. That's a gorgeous purple. Did you dye it yourself?

  2. Not me but reared, shorn, and hand dyed by Emma Boyles - see The yarn is a mix of Stein lace yarn and Gotland/Shetland lace weight yarns - I am having great fun with it - this is the first time I've purchased yarn since I started spinning in 1980 something - the yarn is very lovely. Pam
