Martha took this photo on a trip to Shetland a few years ago to visit Elizabeth. The trip happened in the winter, a rather dark time of year to be vacationing that far north. It also happened to be when the annual Shetland festival Up Helly Aa took place in Lerwick - Europe's largest fire festival. While visiting a pub during the festival, she took this photo. As a knitter, who wouldn't be amused at such a creative use for Fair Isle knitting?
