Knitty Gritty

Finished, finally, and conveniently just in time for summer! This extra long curly neck scarf is made from locally sourced and finished yarn that I acquired from the Shetland Islands during the start of my weave residency last year. With the landscape historically and visually of the islands being my inspiration during the days I spent designing, researching and weave sampling there, I felt that a pass-time both useful and creative was called for, hence starting this piece. With all the colours of my rainbow, and non of the islands more subtle hues, it was a stark contrast and escape from my days spent stomping and looking around Yell in the North, I can't wait to go back!
