Friday Serenity

This is Ruth’s Ashford Rigid Heddle loom, all warped up and ready to go. We thought you’d love to have a little peek at Ruth’s peaceful weaving spot. We really love how her loyal companion is keeping an eye on things too!

Friday Sweater

This sweet little sweater and hat were knitted by Rena. She used DROPS Merino Extra Fine for the sweater, and some matching sock yarn for the hat. She topped it off with some adorable ice cream cone buttons.

Beth’s Friday Beret

Our finished object this week is Beth’s “Da Skaw” beret by Angela Irvine. Beth knitted it with our Loop House yarn. We hope we can take a picture of Beth sporting her beret after restrictions have lifted! The pattern is in the 2020 Shetland Wool Week Annual, which you can order right here:

Friday Finished Object

Rose crocheted this sweet blanket using approx. 250 grams of Sirdar “Replay” and the linen stitch, and her own personal pattern. She finished it off with the bobble shell edging stitch.
