We, 26 ladies from the Netherlands had a beautiful knittingweekend in the Netherland where we talked about Shetland, Shetlandwool en visiting shetland. And sell old knitting books special for the Peerie Makkers. We called the weekend: "Sallandweekend". So we give the Peerie makkers money and help them!
I have always loved Shetland and fairisle knitting , and next year I am visiting at last for Shetland Wool Week. I can’t wait ! I think it is a wonderful idea to continue the traditions by helping young people learn to knit as your Mums and grandparents did Keep up the good work girls and boys!
I love this idea. Knitting is such a useful skill, and Shetland fibre and knitting styles are unique and should be continued. I hope this gift enables the groups to carry on getting children involved in their heritage.
