Name that scarf pattern....yarn, pattern & shawl pin Giveaway for March/April 2017

Name this scarf-Winner will receive the yarns, printed pattern & a lovely Silver shawl pin ! 

Here is another picture update. You can see the silver tone shawl pin with a big black bead !

A combination of stitches & natural organic Shetland wool ♥

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 many qiviut sweater orders (and 95 purebred Shetland lambs born to date) there was very little time to work on this design, but i will press on & add more stitch textures till the end of the month.

I will be attending the Toronto knitters Frolic on the 29th April & will have the scarf/shawl with me if you want to stop by the booth !

  1. It reminds me of a "Monadh" with all its different textures and earthy colours.

  2. Looks like "cookies and cream", I think ;-)

  3. It looks like it sprung organically from your purely creative mind. I would name it, "Purely Organic." ;)

  4. I would name the Shawl - "The Winding Road"

  7. Maybe Stone Beach or Pebble Beach, that's what the colours and textures remind me of most. Or Tidelines or Low Tide? Its also a bit like the layers of gravel and sand you get alternating on some shorelines.

  9. Skipping Stones! This beautiful shawl reminds me of the waves (and the stones at the bottom of a clear lake) that occur while partaking in one of my fave summer activities :)

    Waves of Wonder/Wondrous Waves...
    Stepping Stones...
    Simply Natural Sampler

  13. How about naming this shawl after one of the Shetland beaches? After all, the shawl is knit out of Shetland yarn, and I can’t get over how beachy it looks. I was thinking “Levenwick Beach,” “Norwick,” or “Skaw Beach.” FYI, If you google “Skaw Beach,” there’s actually a photo that looks remarkably like your shawl… the shape, pebbles, everything :)

    Or how about “Mainland,” named after the main Shetland island?

  14. I think I would name this shawl Shetland Ripple. Its texture does remind me of water on a beach at low tide and we've got to keep the Scottish name in there somewhere, haven't we?

    ReplyDelete
  15. I want to name this scarf "Shetland strong". The inspiration comes from the Islanders and way of life which has endured through the centuries.

    ReplyDelete
  16. "The Elders" This pattern reminds me of many generations Grandmother's wisdom within each of their own unique stitch/pattern so that it may be learned, honored and passed down to the younger generations. It's kind of like a coat of arms with yarn and stitches:)

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.
