Beautiful Projects – Jamieson and Smith

September 29, 2015

Since I’ve not had the opportunity to go to Shetland Wool Week myself (yet!), I’m living it through those lucky enough to be there, and watching the #shetlandwoolweek tag on instagram. Today Ysolda taught a class on lace knitting at Jamieson and Smith, so I thought I’d showcase some of the beautiful projects you’ve made using their yarn. Their yarn is obviously perfect for colourwork, but wonderful for lace too.

A pair of Fiddler Mitts knitted by lorix5, in Jamieson and Smith 2ply Jumper Weight. She’s used colours 82 and FC50 – stunning!

This is Sugarleaf by Mary Heather Cogar, published in The Rhinebeck Sweater, and beautifully knitted by Boupaoline in colours 54 and 1280.

This Coraline really shows off the heathery colours through the yarn – it was knitted by Josiane in colour FC38.

Cute!! This little mousie was made by TheBon for a birthday present, in colours 54 and 95.

Subknits Cria is another example of how amazing this yarn can look in stocking stitch. It looks warm and cosy but light at the same time.

Pops has warm arms! This is one of her Farinelli mitts from pattern published in Twist Collective. Ysolda knit up a fingerless version too in case you don’t need full knitted fingers!

I just love the colours Laura Brehaut chose for her wee Chickadee – 202 as the main body colour, and 1284, 366 and FC56 for the contrast. Beautiful button choice too! You can find the pattern here.
