Legends of the Shetland Seas Done and Done





To re-cap. Started June 2007. Spun a single in BFL and a single in merino from Lisa Souza in her "Petroglyph" colorway on my single treadle Schacht and then plied them using the lace flyer on our Majacraft Rose with the fat core bobbins. Got lace weight at approx 36 WPI and knit Hazel Carters "Legends of the Shetland Seas" on size 2.5 mm needles. I like how it came out :-) Happy Holidays to everyone!

Dear atlaw,

Thanks but I think most of the credit should go to Lisa Souza for the terrific colorway for the fiber :-)
