Shetland Wool Week - Day 8

Saturday 1st October was the Makers' Market in Lerwick.
It was jam packed with lovely people and work.  

Outi Kater had a stand and I bought one of her mitten patterns that I'd been eyeing up, 
I have visions of wearing them on a string.

In the afternoon we went over to Burra to see Mike at Red Houss, some fabulous silver and pretty impressive and tidy tools.

Then over to Weisdale to Bonhoga Gallery to see their current exhibition, Black and White.
This is a brilliant paper cut by Gillian Bridle, Shetland Seagull, 
unfortunately it was already sold, I'd have loved it.

Wake 1881 by Helen Robertson, tiny men are caught in the lace.

Finally, almost, we went to see Anne Cleeves launch her new book, Cold Earth.
It was a very entertaining evening and we ended up in the bar with a bottle of Kahlua and some many of our new knitting buddies.
