I have had the most wonderful few days. I flew up to Sumburgh, Shetland to meet up with Dj Stefek (one of the tutors on the Retreat in October in Exeter UK). The weather was AMAZING and I just loved Lerwick and Shetland.
The food was fabulous, Brian, a spinning bloke who lives in Shetland, took me for a look around the Shetland Museum & Archives, a definite must see then to Fjara Cafe Bar where we had the best mussels I have ever had, and the views were second to none! Thank you Brian, it was a very lovely day.
Dj and I did a lot of talking, walking and laughing, with maybe just a 'little' bit of purchases!! also. Shetland is definitely the home of FairIsle Knitting, it is just everywhere is so beautiful. A lot of talented people are knitting FairIsle there. So I purchased a pattern and wool are are making a hat for me...a little bit out of my comfort zone, but are really enjoying it.
Thank you Dj so much for making the time there just great. I look forward to going back soon.
