shetland wool week 2016
Hello! I’m sorry I haven’t posted sooner after Shetland Wool Week, what a crazy week it was! I felt like it just flew by. I did two classes and a talk and of course I was working at J&S the whole week. I really did try but failed to take too many pictures but I thought I’d share some of the pictures I did get through the week..
It was really a great week, but so incredibly busy – I’m still getting over it! The shop (J&S) was mental everyday but its such a good way to see everyone that’s up that we probably met almost everyone! I was quite surprised how shy I felt though, I suppose I’m not used to doing speeches and talks although I was really pleased with how they went* it was probably just the quantity of people I was meeting that make me feel quite overwhelmed. Also I was ridiculously nervous for my speech at the opening ceremony..
I can’t really put into words how weird (in a good way!) it was to see so many Crofthoose Hats, at the opening ceremony they asked everyone who had one to hold it up – I couldn’t believe how many I saw, I am still so happy with the design and really proud of what I have done this year. Being the Wool Week patron has given me a confidence in my skills and helped me to believe maybe I can do this designing stuff…
Anyway I’m going to have a bit of a rest and do some selfish knitting, speak soon!
*I’m working on putting my talk into an article for those who were vexed it wasn’t streamed so ill let you know when I know more!
