Greetings from New Hampshire! I just placed my 1st Wooly Thistle order and found your podcast via all of the buzz re the Vanilla and Victory sweaters! I LOVE that you are local and carry some wonderful yarny goodness. I think I am about 2 hours away so if you have an in person shop I would love to visit :-)
Thanks for yet anther fun and informative episode. In particular Rachel’s tour of Lerwick.. I still hope to get to Shetland one day after Covid put a hold on my planned 2020 Shetland Wool Adventures tour. Wishing you a lovely holiday season and looking forward to new episodes in 2022. I hope to finish up my Star Cardi over the holidays. Ready to cut the steaks and sew the sleeves on as soon as I finish knitting a few Christmas gifts!
That was a great podcast and Rachael, that was delightful!! Loved the first sweater you showed from the museum. Aye, weather rules!!! Happy Holidays and stay safe!
Thank you for the visit with Rachel. I live on Cape Cod where we think it is windy but it doesn’t compare to Shetland, which I hope to visit someday. Thank you for the prompt delivery of my Marie Wallin British Breeds. I hope to begin Petal in 2022.
