Disappointed that you can’t make it all the way to the Shetland Isles for the 2017 Shetland Wool Week? Fear not, because the Wabi Sabi Shetland Wool Weekend is here! From October 5 to October 7, we’ll be shining a special spotlight on all things Shetland!

We hope you’ll join us in appreciating the gorgeous colours, knits, and rich fibre traditions that hail from the Shetland region of of the UK. With a wide colour selection of Jamieson & Smith‘s 2 Ply Jumper Weight and oodles of natural Shetland roving, you’re sure to find something lovely to work with!

Everyone is welcome to join us on Friday, October 6 for a Shetland Wool Week cast on party! We’ll be casting on this year’s fabulous SWW pattern: the Bousta Beanie from Gudrun Johnston! Stop by the shop and pick up a free hard copy of the pattern when you buy your yarn to knit the Bousta Beanie (while supplies last), or download the pattern for free through the SWW website!

(Other projects are more than welcome to join in! Be sure to let the shop know if you’ll be needing space for a wheel or loom!)

Fair Isle beginners will find our Knit 301: Fair Isle Wrist Warmers (starting Thursday, October 5) a great introduction to the wide world of stranded colourwork! Follow the link to reserve your spot!

No registration is necessary for our cast-on party! See you there!
