I hadn't realized you were from Shetland. One of my favorite knitting designers is from there and, although she's here in the states now, she goes back every year and her posts are fascinating. I'd like to know more about the island - I hope BBC America decides to show this soon!
I hope so too. Shetland's an amazing place - small and marginal with an incredible amount of creativity for such a small population - ok I'm a bit biased. Would be really interested to know more about your knitting designer - if she blogs could you send me a link?
