Niela was delighted to share her experience of V&A Dundee's Scottish Design Relay (a national project for young people) in an article for this year's Shetland Wool Week Annual.


Having been a leader of the Shetland leg of the relay, Niela reflects on the project—and the importance of knitting in Shetland's past, present and future.


The Shetland Wool Week Annual is a beautifully produced publication, edited by Misa Hay. It contains twelve wonderful knitting patterns, and five essays on Shetland life and history—all beautifully illustrated with high quality photography.


Alongside Niela's essay you can read about a vital project for young Shetlanders, Peerie Makkers, the initiative to bring hand-knitting back to primary school age children.
