Abby, the author of the Visit Shetland newsletter has sent out the November version. One of the most interesting newsletters I receive: http://visit.shetland.org/november-2013-newsletter. I always make sure I read it in detail.
The whole publication is really comprehensive. Just a few examples: I listened to the broadcast of a programme from BBC 4 radio about Shetland Sunday teas--there are even two recipes given. http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00mf27d. Also a review of Shetland Wool Week: http://www.shetlandamenity.org/shetland-wool-week-looks-ahead. Those who've come to Shetland with me in past years will recognize familiar names like Hazel Tindall and there is a photo of Mary Kay holding up one of her beautiful lace creations, during a workshop.
Mitred blanket update: I've completed 68 squares. (You can tell I've been knitting when I should have been doing other things.) It still puzzles me, that with all the squares which have been knitted, that I still have a lot of yarn in my basket!
