Great Fun! (Legends of the Shetland Seas Revisited)







Why post a copy of the Spring 2008 Spin-Off Magazine? Because they saw my version of the Legends of the Shetland Seas Stole and asked if they could photograph it for the Spring 2008 Spin-Off Magazine gallery of lace :-) Great Fun! I would never have spun/knit this without participating in the Spun Stitches knit-a-long so thank you Teresa and Kristen for hosting this wonderful site! The staff at Spin-Off made sure to mention this site in the information on the stole. Back to knitting Laminaria.

Hey, Jane. While I was reading my Spin Off the other night, I showed my hubby your shawl just to show him that I am rubbing shoulders with greatness. Congratulations.

Kirsten said...

I saw this in my copy of Spin Off yesterday. How exciting! Congratulations!

Jane said...

Dear Tracy,

Thank you but I think everyone who has been spinning and knitting with Spun Stitches fits that bill :-) Don't be surprised to see others from this group in Spin-Off too(wink)

Dear Kirsten,

Thank you! I was really honored to be asked considering I'm not a "technical" spinner/knitter. I just spin what feels right and that stole ended up really well for me :-)

Monika said...

Congratulations! I'm still waiting for my copy, but yes, it's exciting, and so well deserved. It is a wonderful stole! :o)

Jane said...

Dear Monika,

Thank you! I love how that stole came out and I just gave it to my co-worker who is getting ready to retire. She deserves it and much more if truth be told :-)

Stephanie said...

Congratulations!
I'm awaiting my copy - and the return of my own shawl ;) glad to see others from this group featured!

Dear Stephanie,

I got my stole back the same day my subscription issue of Spin-Off came in the mail. I was really excited to see that a number of spinners from this site were asked to contribute. I actually think Spin-Off should think about doing a short article about Spun Stitches!

Congrats! I sure enjoyed watching your progress on that one. Now I need to remember to subscribe to spin off already. I keep forgetting...
