A common practice for swatching on Shetland is to knit a hat. It allows knitters to test out patterns and colors, and confirm their gauge. In the end, the knitter will have a hat that will surely fit someone, and their time and yarn will be put to productive use.
Anne finishes her trip to Loch Ness Knit Fest and shares an interview with Christel Seyfarth, Danish designer and host of Fanø International Knit Festival. She also shares information on a knit-along starting January 1, 2020, that she will be co-hosting with Jana of the Purl Together video podcast.
In this episode, Anne shares her experience with the classes at Shetland Wool Week 2019. Also, in honor of Wovember, she shares a few sheep-themed songs. And, finally, she gives a heads up for a UFO-finishing knit-along coming in January, 2020.
Harriet Middleton, designer of the Harriet’s Hat (and headband, fingerless gloves, gloves, mittens, and cowl!), sits down to talk to Anne about her knitting life before her fundraising for the Shetland MRI Scanner Appeal began, how the MRI Maakers started, the momentum behind her patterns, the unintended good that has resulted from them.
