shetland memories












































































perhaps, it would have been a good idea to write a bit about these photos, and i will possibly come back to do that, but for now, i'd like to share the last post i have of shetland, of the grand adventure taken this summer. everyday, it's in my heart, the place, the people, and most of all the friendships made. it really was one of the most brilliant adventures of my life.

  12. Lori, no words are needed. These images just take me away to a totally wonderful place. It seems like a dream to see these, but even better to realize that Shetland is real!

    I will return to these pictures many times. And...I think that I need to contact Gudrun to find out more about 2015.

    Thank you! xo

  16. As ever Lori your posts are just beautiful. I love the way the internet and our love of all things yarny connect us.
    You live such a long way away but in summer you were (still a long way from where i live in the north west of the uk) near to where i live.
    Hope that makes sense?
    Love Susan xx

    1. thank you so much susan, and it does make perfect sense. it's always that way when traveling, things are so close, yet not, because of time and logistics to get from one place to another. but this summer i was definitely closer to you! i'm so glad you enjoyed xx

  23. We went to a sheep shearing once near us (it was in May...which makes more sense to me, as the weather warms up in the summer)! I ♥ the red phone booth. Thank you for sharing such lovely hiking on the hills and lush green.

  24. This is one of my favorite books to read to young children: http://www.amazon.com/Farmer-Brown-Shears-His-Sheep/dp/0789426374 In it, the farmer's wife ends up knitting sweaters for the sheep!
