I love 2018. Why? We have our tables set up at Suzoo’s. There’s a comfy home for The Sheepwalk. My new and old friends are bringing us ideas for new classes, how to keep things lively and this makes me want to jump for joy! I have stepped aside for this years Bandera Fiber Arts Retreat as teacher so that I can learn from Dwanna Whitener the Redding Method of dying. This is going to be a game changer for those of us who love to play with color, texture and fiber!
My epiphanies for 2018 are The Shetlanders which takes me home. I love all things Fair Isle, wooly and potentially Scottish. Many of the samples knit for the shop are influenced by the Nordic, British and Celtic traditions. You can find Jamiesons yarn here and now with the help of Tina, we will have a color works mixer with 100 and 200 yard put ups in the fingering Merino 6/2. Most colors can be custom dyed in to the standard 600 yard skeins too.
Meet the Shetlanders: 01 being the darkest to 07 to the lightest! And don’t forget to catch a glimpse of my first of the Fair Isle series “New Mexico Way”!
