It’s Knit Night this week!!

We’re so excited for our online knit nights to start this week! What will you be working on?

Annie has started the beautiful “Katie’s Kep” using Jamieson & Smith’s 2 Ply Jumper Weight yarn. “Katie’s Kep” is the hat pattern for this year’s Shetland Wool Week  and you can get it right here!

The 2020 Patron, Wilma Malcolmson, is the owner of Shetland Designer, which she started in 1982, as well as a Wool Week and ShetlandPeerieMakker tutor.  She describes her hat below:

“My hat ‘Katie’s Kep’ is named after my mother Katie. It includes the patterns that she taught me when I was a peerie lass because they were her favourites. She belonged to that large group of professional knitters, without whom our Shetland colour work and lace heritage might not have been as alive and vibrant as it is today. This is my tribute to all the known and unknown designer artists of Shetland throughout the centuries.”
