I have quickly mentioned it here before, but in October (4th to 12th) will take place the Shetland Wool Week, a celebration of knitting and pretty yarns (and sheeps) in Shetland. Even though I can't go, I (and many others) will participate from my home, knitting a Shwook Hat, a pretty fair isle hat pattern that is free to grab on the Shetland Wool Week Website!
Melody from Mandarine's has created a Ravelry group for the Knit Along (sponsored by Jamieson & Smith!) that you are all free to join. I think it would be awesome if we all knitted something together at the same time, don't you think?
All you need is the free pattern and 5 tiny cute 25gr balls of Jamieson & Smith 2ply Jumper Weight (or something similar). I actually bought 8 very pretty one and now can't decide which 5 to keep, so I will need your help with that soon!

Can't wait for October! We can never have to many hats right?
