My 2nd Fair Isle Hat :)

This Crofthoose hat is the 2nd fair isle hat I have knitted from the 2016 Shetland WoolWeek pattern. The hat is designed by the lovely shetlander knitter Ella Gordon. What I like about this pattern is that it’s easy to follow and you can choose five colour pallets to play with. So if you are a colour maniac/enthusiast like me, you would enjoy knitting one ๐Ÿ™‚

Click on the video above to see what colour choice I chose from Blacker Yarn and ย Jamieson and Smith 2ply/fingering weight.

This project took me about three weeks to finish but I am a slow knitter so don’t take it as a standard knitting time…lol

Hiya,

For those who didn’t get a chance to visit the festival which was a-m-a-z-i-n-g by the way, here is a mini film I made during my break from volunteering and a short clip of the Ceilidh Night ๐Ÿ™‚

See you again next year!

Podcast Recording Failed, Never Mind

Ok, after hours of talking to (myself) the camera, I decided I didn’t like the way I sounded !

So I came up with a way I could show off my first knitted hat within seconds and without having to say a thing to bore you..ha..ha..

In the future, if you like to see what I have created, made, tried, and failed, you can also subscribe to my channel ย here

See you on the flip side ๐Ÿ™‚

Hiya,

It’s never too late to say Happy New Year, everyone ! Like the title suggests, I went to the moon and now back ๐Ÿ˜€

For the past few months, I have travelled, visited families, seen new places and cultures.

Can you guess where I have been from these photos?

But now I am back to my yarn and craft world and it feels good to be back.

It feels good to be able to paint and dye (yarns) again. ๐Ÿ™‚
