Puffins on a misty evening with Guillemot rock in the background. These bright characters are one of my favourites- just a few seconds of watching them waddle about puts a big smile on my face. It won’t be long till they are off to sea and we won’t see them again till next year 💔 #puffinlove #sumburghhead

Introducing our eighth pattern in the Annual: ‘Da Muckle Ayre Stole’ by @anneeunson. . Muckle Ayre is named for the croft in Vidlin, on the east side of Shetland, where Anne’s dad was born 100 years ago. He and his nine siblings spent much of their childhood there. The remote crofthouse now stands in ruins, but still holds a special place in her heart. She chose the colour ‘Water Lily’ because it evokes the lovely bluey-green colour of the waters surrounding these isles, and the stitch pattern, ‘Alice Maud’ – a favourite of hers – for the waves running through it. The annual will be available from 28 September, to pre-order your copy follow the link in the bio above. #laceknitting #knittersofinstagram #anneeunson #damuckleayrestole #anneeunson #shetlandwoolweekannual #shetlandwool #coloursofshetland #inspiredbyshetland #shetlandsheep #stricken #strikk #loveknitting #knittingismyyoga #shetlandlace #jamiesonsofshetland

My favourite walking place in all weathers. It’s wild out there today but we put on our waterproofs and headed for a bracing but super uplifting walk along Lerwick’s coast. I took this photo a couple of weeks ago, the grass is a lot less green now and you can definitely start seeing more of the autumn colours. And the weather is turning too with more gales and rain. How is your weather at the moment?

Windhouse on the island of Yell was an 18th century lairds abode and supposedly one of the most haunted houses in the UK. This is as close as I was getting.........300m away! 🤷🏻‍♂️👻 #shetlandbydrone

Our next design in the SWW Annual is the cosy ‘Stavaness Toorie’ by @terrilaura. * Terri took her inspiration from the huge granite stones found at Stavaness in North Nesting, directly across the water from Whalsay. This is the granite that was used to build Symbister House, a fine example of Georgian architecture now known as Whalsay School. The stones were rowed across the water on boats and hauled up to the site. It is said the workers were paid three halfpennies per day for this backbreaking work. Knitting this toorie will be anything but backbreaking though. The geometric pattern is easily learned and a joy to knit in two colours of warm, lightweight Shetland wool. The Annual will be available from 28 September.

A very pretty capture of #Jarlshof, an archaeological site with impressive remains from the Bronze Age, Iron Age, Viking and medieval periods. There’s a broch, a large roundhouse, four wheelhouses and an extensive Viking farmstead with its characteristic longhouse. All with an excellent visitor centre helps make sense of it all.⁠ .⁠ .⁠ 📸 @jillyisnotawolf⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ #scotlandlove #scotlandsites #scotlandbeauty #scotland #insta_scotland #hiddenscotland #60north #inspiredbyshetland #shetlandphotography #shetlandlife #promoteshetland #shetland #myshetlandlife #instashetland #explorescotland #storiesfromscotland #ig_scot #visitscotland #optoutside #somewhereinscotland #travelscotland #documentingbritain #exploremore #scotspirit #thewildnesstonic #thisisscotland #theslowdowncollective #stayandwander #map_of_europe

𝙰 𝚂 𝚔 𝚎 𝚛 𝚛 𝚢 / 𝚂 𝚔 𝚎 𝚛 A skerry. A Scottish noun from old Norse sker. A word used to describe a reef or rocky island too small for habitation. A skerry is a very common word used around the map of Shetland because we have many. These skerries are definitely my favourite. Lyra Skerry sits at the front with Fogla Skerry standing behind. Also notice the stack shooting up out of the sea to the left. Impressive rock formation right?! The island of Papa Stour, for me, is the winner when it comes to dramatic rock formation. It’s a truly unique and stunning island hidden off the West coast of Shetland. With just a population in its teens it’s a well kept secret. If you ever get the chance to visit Papa you should go... just be mindful of the huge holes that gape down into the sea! I did say the rock formation is very unique... #whatshetlandmeanstome #myshetlandlife #inspiredbyshetland #shetlandislands #shetland #northisle #scotlandexplore #islandlife #geologyeverywhere #geologyrocks #ruralisland #getoutandexplore

lost Burra Bear UPDATE: you may remember last June I posted a photo of 'Andrew o' Aywick' he had been bought onboard NorthLink Ferries by Wayne & Ann from Australia on their return journey, sadly he had been accidentally left on the Heathrow Express and despite cotacting Heathrow and many people trying to track him down, (we had 394 shares on the post on Facebook) he was never handed in. Wayne contacted me to order another bear, we managed to make the second bear from a similar piece of Fair Isle knitwear, so 'Moore o' Muckle Roe' travelled to be with his new family in Australia and all was well ........ Fast forward to the end of August this year and who should pop up on Ebay for sale but 'Andrew o' Aywick', right away I contacted the seller to find out where he had been all this time, they explained that they buy unclaimed airport luggage and that's how they came to have him. I immediately contacted Wayne to let him know that Andrew had been tracked down, he was delighted and said they had a wedding anniversary coming up and this would be the perfect gift. I received this photo today from Wayne & Ann, Andrew reminiscing with Moore about his adventures, after almost 15 months he finally made to his forever home. Now that's what you call a very happy ending xx

It was a tad difficult to walk in the gusts. Here I am getting blown sideways and backwards, and having to catch my breath when I could! I’m not wearing a hat because it literally got blown off the top of my head, fortunately down the hill rather than over the cliff #griefwalks #grief #bereavement #wildgrief #grieftherapy #hiking #shetland #shetlandislands #inspiredbyshetland

#ad Today I’ve been reminiscing about our trip to #Shetland which is such a beautiful place and I’d love to return to explore more. Today on Globalmouse you can read all about my children’s thoughts on our visit to these Scottish islands, from their favourite meal there to the best activities. I always love these posts, they never stop surprising me with the things they particularly love which is often different to what I think 😝 #lovescotland

A armful of pumpkins woo. A good result from just two plants grown in raised beds with plastic covers. They all sound hollow now and havnt grown in a wee bit so no point risking damage from the autumn storms and cold nights. Might as well come in to cure on the windowsill in the sun. . . . #turksturban #pumpkinpatch #pumpkingrowing #60north #inspiredbyshetland #shetlandveggarden #veggrowing #gyo #islandlife #scottishislands

Is it possible to be in love with a pumpkin - I think so! Im delighted with this turks turban grown in a little diy plastic house that needed reinforcing regularly to stop the shetland wind blowing its roof away. Its feeling like autumn now! Now to cure in a windowsill for a few weeks. Not bad for chilly Shetland . . . #pumpkinpatch #inspiredbyshetland #shetlandveggarden #growingfood #growyourownfood #turksturban #permaculture #60north #islandlife #growersofig

Hello everyone, how have your weekends been? We're really getting into the (k)nitty gritty -pardon the pun!- with my blogs now. Yesterday's blog is about our visit to Knit Camp Stirling University 2010. This trip was in the middle of our wool season, and the start of a very eventful time for me and my work place Jamieson & Smith as when I arrived back home I was ordered to create Shetland Wool Week, which will be my next blog... I'm so glad you're all still enjoying reading about my life's work; it amazes me every single week! If there is anything that anyone would like to hear me speak about please let me know! The link for my blog is in my bio. #shetlandwoolweek #shetland #shetlandsheep #landscapephotography #inspiredbyshetland #promoteshetland #exploreshetland #60north

It’s 12 days until Shetland Wool Week, and here is our twelfth pattern in this year’s Annual! In honour of our tenth festival, @hadewychvanderwerf, who has been tutoring at SWW since 2016, has designed the celebratory ‘St Ninian’s Isle Cowl’ featuring ten repeats of ‘WW’ along with the Roman X. Further inspiration, and the name of the piece, comes from the tombolo to St. Ninian's isle, one of her favourite spots. As the tombolo connects St. Ninian’s to the mainland, so too does Shetland Wool Week connect Shetland to knitters all over the world. Worked in her hybrid ‘double marl’ technique to create the misty feel of Shetland, using the colours of sea and sky, we hope you will find the St. Ninian’s Isle cowl an intriguing and evocative knit. The SWW Annual will be available from 28 September. To pre-order your copy please follow the link to the online shop in the bio above. #hadewychvanderwerf #stniniansislecowl #shetlandwoolweekannual #shetlandwool #shetlandsheep #stniniansisle #inspiredbyshetland #beachesofshetland #cowl #knittersofinstagram #doublemarl #shetland #loveknitting #strikk #stricken

Repost from @shetlandwildlife What a great weekend for seeing these beautiful orcas! A wonderful Sunday afternoon following Orcas (the 27s pod) as they hunted close inshore along the east coast of the south Mainland of Shetland. Great to see the newest member of the pod so active and enjoying life in the ocean - and not in a swimming pool. #CaptivityKills #emptythetanks #shetlandwildlife #shetland #shetlandislands #shetlandisles #inspiredbyshetland #scotland #visitscotland #shetlandphotography #wildlifephotography #whale #whales #orca #orcas #killerwhales #blackfish #killer #whale #cetacean #cetaceans #ocean #sea #marinelife #nature #Blackfish #Tilikum Effect #thinkuhi

We have 55 lighthouses and structures serving a similar purpose, all free-standing, with a range of at least 7 miles (as published in the Admiralty list of lights and fog signals) protecting the coastal waters around Shetland.⠀ .⠀ This one is Kirkabister Ness, Bressay. Visitors arriving by boat will see it on the eastern approaches to Lerwick harbour.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #maritimehistory #seastheday #lighthouse #lighthouse_world #lighthousesofinstagram #lighthouselovers #lighthouse_captures #inspiredbyshetland #outandaboutscotland #gowander #exploremore #exploretocreate #explorescotland #shetlandislands #visitscotland #theslowdowncollective #scotlandisnow #thisisscotland #scotspirit #lifeofadventure #ig_scot #shetlandwithlaurie #myshetlandlife #thewildnesstonic #everydaylifeoutdoors #folktravel #somewhereinscotland #postcardsfromtheworld #simplyscotland #mylpguide

I’ve had a piece in my mind for quite some time and it has completely taken over my mind to the point I had to make it so before my head burst. My bench often ends up chaos, I’ve often looked at the chaos and wondered if I could make a necklace that was that chaos, using only offcuts of silver and not buying and jump rings or catches in I have made each piece of this by hand, each shell cast individually and each ring made by me then soldered shut. This is the piece being made x #hillswick #shetland #shetlandislands #loveshetland #promoteshetland #inspiredbyshetland #chaos #handmade #myart #mymind #silverjewelry #goldjewelry #uniquegifts

In #Shetland you will find an amazing natural feature called a tombolo which is a sandbar created from waves thrashing in two opposite directions. This one is 500 metres long and is in the South Mainland at St Ninian’s Isle.

One good thing aboot greyhounds is they don't need much exercise, especially good as I'm recovering from a cold and have spent 2 days mostly horizontal watchin poirot and sleeping. However, #CasinoTheGreyt does need more entertainment than chasing bluebottles so once the wind dropped to a mere F8ish we braved it. Sneezin put my back oot so I'm grateful to live in a place where I can lie on the ground without embarrassment 😂 This is the first proper windy wind of the autumn and forgot how much I love watching the waves smash. Waders, like dunlin, ringed plover and turnstone, busy feeding on the clifftop. Gulls and gannets feeding at sea. Pink footed geese on the move south fae Iceland, stopping here to shelter and refuel. A handful of bonxies and wheatear remain. I'm going back to bed now but am glad to have a dog to force me out into nature even when im feelin shite. #greyhoundsofinstagram #greyhound #adoptagreyhound #retiredgreyhound #tripawdsofinstagram #tripawd #tripawdgreyhound #rescuedog #nature #natureprescription #natureimmersion #brindle #waves #atlantic #gale #Shetland #inspiredbyshetland #manflu #womengetmanflutoo #cold

Another wild, windy day here today but the sun is out, so it was a great opportunity to watch the North Atlantic crashing into the cliffs at Eshaness. Walking and even just standing upright was a challenge with 50-60mph gusts, but really exhilarating. As summer ends, we can look forward to more of this over the winter. Although most visitors come to Shetland during the summer months, if you enjoy experiencing the power of nature - raw and untamed - winter here is wonderful. . #shetland #shetlandisles #visitshetland #exploreshetland #walkshetland #loveshetland #inspiredbyshetland #promoteshetland #coastalwalks #stayandwander #offthebeatentrack #coastline #walking #gowander #stormysea #exploremore #adventureseeker #goexplore #seascape #thegreatoutdoors #adventurethatislife #powerofnature #roughsea #windyday #exhilarating #onehouroutside #wildbritain #northatlantic #cliffs #clifftops
