  • In 2017 I visited Shetland. In Lerwick I shopped at Loose Ends where I received a free pattern of Gudrun Johnston’s BOOSTA BEANIE. I purchased four skeins of Urudale yarn in the colors of Laebrakk, Glansin and Flukkra. Two weeks prior to the February 4 podcast, I found the pattern and yarn in my stash for the Woolly Thistle Colorwork KAL. I couldn’t have been more surprised when you featured this pattern and yarn.
    Thank you Corinne and Maggie.
