Just about bordering on odd, I see things through different eyes.The heading says it all - I live, I love, I craft, I am me...



I ♥ Shetland - Heart-♥-thon day 3

 Day 3- Heart-♥-thon 215.

Remember I'd entered the Shetland Wool Week knitted festive bauble? Well, a couple of days ago, a parcel came through the letterbox. I might have squealed a little - just a little (depending on who you ask....) I may have squeaked a bit too!

 Once opened, out came an amazing selection of Shetland themed goodies. 
A magazine - 60 North, filled with the most delicious articles and photographs
 Also contained in the parcel was a beautiful postcard with images of fairisle jumpers knitted between 1890 and 1930 as well as a CD - The Authentic Sounds of Shetland, which I have played several times already - I am loving the reels and jigs as well as the lilting folk singing.
 More treasures - two pin badges, the one on the left Himself claimed immediately and pinned it to his walking beanie while the one on the right claimed my heart - it is hand knitted fairisle - how gorgeous is that? I am wearing it now :)
 Tucked in the packet was also an 'I Shetland' bangle - says it all :)
Now if you'll excuse me, I have a magazine to read (squeeeeee - can you see the knitting belt?!?), a mug of tea and some knitting to do - bliss :)
