And the winner is.....

''spirit of Shetland Throw''

I had a really difficult time choosing just one name as there were so many great entries !  

A big Thank you to all for helping♥

I think the given name sums up this throw as all the fiber came from Pure bred Shetland sheep (except for the small amount of 100% qiviut) and these little sheep are very spirited indeed.

Will be adding the border to the throw over the next few days, adding the remaining blocks
and writing the patterns with Finally a picture of the finished throw.

well done Vanessa, please contact me so i can mail off your yarns

Check out the October blog entry (coming soon), for 2 smokerings knit with our dreamy soft Shetland Tundra blend and the 2 winning entries get to choose the natural colour or hand dyed in your colour choice as shown below !

Mioget shawl Giveaway for August/September 2017

Mioget Shawl

Been a very busy Spring & Summer around here......Lots of lambs-96 in total alive & well. They are everywhere i look. Some days i have so much work i don't know what job to tackle first.....thank goodness  i have a very understanding husband who loves the Sheep just as much as i do. Not to mention a family who are now city folk but love to come to the country side for weekends away.....& don't mind singing for their supper ! Before long most of the lambs will be gone, they are all sold & my work schedule will be greatly reduced....roll on !

Managed to finish a few of my UFO's lately & I'm very happy they are complete so i can move onto my next ''knitting with purpose'' project, more about that in the next blog later in the year. Oh and my NEW OUT♥LANDER inspired yarns (90% Shetland wool-10% Qiviut-musk oxen) big 150 gram skeins, will be off the machines in only a few days.....more about that in a week or so.

Something I'm working on, nowhere near finished as i want it to be at least 60'' inches long so please check back to see the finished scarf as it will help in naming the pattern design. (Read on for more info)
I just love working with Natural wool. There is just something about it that makes me feel content, i would even say happy ! 
The nameless scarf/shawl consists of a stepped edge along the bottom in moss stitch, the top edge is straight with moss stitch, garter stitch, eyelets, cables, tubes, box stitch, stocking stitch....a mash up of textures that show up brilliantly in real wool. The earthy colours i'm using are white, fawn & Musket & all 100% Natural to the awesome coloured Shetland sheep.
And as of today-April 22nd....this all i have done....shameful ! Had so ma…
