Here's @hilarygrantknitwear last post for our Instagram takeover - a tribute to her most valuable suppliers. ⠀

"At this time of year lambing season is in full swing. When I first moved to Orkney I lived on a sheep and cattle farm for a year. ⠀

It was a really valuable experience learning about how a farm is run, and learning how to care for the animals. During lambing season I had 5 caddy lambs to look after. They soon recognised me as their sole provider of food and would chase me to the feeding pen. It was very cute until they become full-sized sheep!⠀

Most of the wool from sheep in Orkney is sent to the British Wool Marketing board where it is used in interior textiles, insulation and industrial textiles. It's a course wool which has evolved to the needs of the sheep to keep them warm and dry, quite an amazing fibre wouldn't you say?"

Knitting in the last rays of sunlight. Feet up, birds sing and spring is in the air.

Lucky find at TK Maxx today, Knitting from the North from #hilarygrantknitwear for 3 Euros ❤ had this on my wishlist since its release #knitter #knittersofinstagram #knitstagram #yarnstagram #yarnaddict #knit #knitting #ravelry #knitbritish #tkmaxx

I finally finished my #AarowPomHat! Is it perfect? No. Does it fit? Nope. (It's too small for an adult because my tension was too tight) Did I learn a lot? Yes! Was it fun? Definitely yes! It's projects like these that don't turn out like I planned that I value the most because I learn so much in the process.

Well, hello - or sort of. Camera shy, while trying to show my finished #saxonhat (which is also a sort of, because I never got around to add the pom-pom before starting wearing it). Thought the woods were a appropriate place to take a pic, since most of the hat is dyed with oak bark. This walk made me think, like, good thoughts. It always does, walking the woods. But today I had a brilliant idea. About dyeing and woods and stuff. You'll quite certainly hear more if you stay tuned in!

Loved our visit over to Glendale today, felt so good to be out in the fresh air 🌾wore my new Hilary grant shawl & my cuillin hoops 💫

I love my new Barley legwarmers 💚
This has been a KAL with my dear friend @chomolhari 💙😘 The original pattern is for fingerless mitts and I'm pretty sure that I'll have to knit them, too 😉
I found the pattern in the beautiful book 'Knitting from the North' from Hilary Grant, a gift from my dear Laura 😘

I have decided that its time I up my knitting game by diving into Fair Isle knitting. I can't figure out what took me so long because this is more fun than cables! 😍
