We are writing to say how sad we are that we are not going to be able to learn Fair Isle knitting at school.
It is a shame because it is a part of Shetland’s history and part of our pleasure is putting our knitting into the Walls Show. As not all of our parents can knit we will lose the chance to learn to knit now.
Please, please, keep knitting in our schools.
