Woolly extravaganza

Welcome to this September issue of Shetland Life. August was quite a month with the by-election and all the politics that came along knocking at our doors. My editorial became a despairing rant, so I’ll try to keep this upbeat.

The September issue is a woolly extravaganza. Misa Hay takes a look back over 10 years of Shetland Wool Week, and we have features from some well-known, and loved, knitwear business owners. We meet Joanna Hunter-Coe as Joanna Hunter Knitwear celebrates its 20th anniversary and Ella Gordon unravels the world of social platform, Ravelry. Elsewhere, Terri Malcolmson shares a heather inspired hat to keep us all warm as the autumn days take hold and Fenton & Friends get their ganzies on as they explore Fair Isle knitwear and its roots.

Elsewhere, Ali Grundon Robertson considers foraging in Shetland and Violet McQuade takes on a journey through the history of the Skerries – the island where she grew up.

As we approach the final quarter of another fantastic year, we would love to hear from you. Do you have an idea for Shetland Life or feedback on the magazine? What have we done well? What would you like to see more of in the coming year? What have you not enjoyed? – hit us with it; we are always keen to get your views and opinions.

And finally, if you want to read my despairing September editorial then do go and buy the magazine!
