Denise: The Shetland Lace Scarf made with our hand-spun Uist Landscapes merino wool is always in demand, and has been even been bought by men as a surprise gift for their partners! It’s also the garment for which we’ve most often been asked – by experienced knitters – for the pattern. Until now we’ve always said that we can’t supply a copy of the pattern – because it is just a pattern in my head! However, after a long session yesterday spent with J downloading and converting to a suitable format for publishing, we are now in a position to supply a knitting kit, consisting of a pattern leaflet and two skeins of the Uist Landscapes merino wool of your choice. Here’s pages 1 and 4 from the leaflet. More information ⇒
Denise: Just finished this new ladies cardigan Uist Sea, Uist Sky. Much of the knitting was done driving to and from Benebecula (and elsewhere). Or, more correctly – as Jonathan points out – ‘passengering’. He was driving, not me. I was knitting, not he! There’s more about this on the Hebridean Woolshed website. The cardigan, not the drive-by knitting!
