What amazing remoteness! We city-dwellers often need to be reminded that our urban areas are artificial, built by us and not by nature. That's why I love stories with a strong sense of place - they transport us to environments we may never otherwise experience.
One of the episodes is set on Fair Isle, described on the island's webpage as "Britain's most remote - though far from isolated - inhabited island." After I finished watching it, I couldn't stop thinking about the climate there and the need for indoor activities. Fair Isle knitting, of course!
I love Fair Isle patterns. I regard myself as a basic knitter but even I have been game to try one of these wonderful designs - a jumper for my baby nephew. Knitting the pattern from a graph and weaving the yarn across the knitting as I went, I remember almost going demented with the detail (and that was 24 years ago!). Here he is, wearing the jumper I knitted. Such a cutie!
