Knitting Shetland Inspiration

How my knitting practice helps me stay mindful and connect me with Shetland’s past

Knitting is a way for me to connect with Shetland’s history. As I work on my projects, I am reminded of the generations of women who came before me, passing down their skills and knowledge through the ages, teaching their daughters and granddaughters. In a world that often feels disconnected and fragmented, this connection to the past and to a larger community of makers is grounding and comforting. However, I am also mindful that in Shetland, knitting was not always a choice – it was once a chore that had to be done.
