Guest: Gudrun Johnston, The Shetland Trader. Gudrun explains where the name The Shetland Trader comes from and she talks about her beautiful new collection of patterns. She tells us where she got the names of the patterns included in the book.

If you’re local, make sure you stop by on December 2nd to meet Gudrun!

KAL with Leslie Ann: This week LA discusses the woven section. You’ll be knitting with two strands of yarn AND the smaller needle. Work first two rows of woven pattern, work across front, bind off for underarm, and work across then turn to complete the back. Once the woven section is completed, you’ll drop the extra strand and go back to alternating strands if you are doing that.

Shaping the shoulders – work across the neckline stitches then place them on the holder after knitting them. You’ll begin short row shaping after this. Don’t be afraid of this! The instructions are super clear in the pattern.

    I wish you were closer to where I live. I just love looking at all the yarns and of course buying. I had back surgery and can’t sit long now and have been doing socks since I can do that sitting or laying down. I would love any of the prizes but the sock yarn would keep me busy for a while. I just ordered some more today from you. nnI appreciate whenever I have called for any reason you all are so happy to help anyone and make your customers always feel special. Unfortunately you don’t always find that other places.
