A beautiful September day today and ended with a lovely sunset which I caught as it dipped down over the island of Foula. Hoping for another couple of days like this. The forecast says yes.
A wee trip to Lerwick and a wander over to the south end. Here we have Bains Beach which is just a stride from the building used as the home of DI Perez in the 'Shetland' series.
These three lovely American ladies are leaving Shetland today after, I am assured, a most enjoyable two week holiday. I had the pleasure of spending their last afternoon with them. After lunch we went to the Shetland Textile Museum. Where else would three knitting enthusiasts (ok, fanatics) go for their last eyeful of Shetland wirsit (wool) history and up to date knitting with an expert spinning demonstration by Nancy Hunter.
I know nothing about knitting but I'm continually astounded by the ever increasing new designs and colours and the skill with which they are put together in a garment.
These photos don't do the Textile Museum justice so here is a link to their website:
