Pony Knits - Polish Up Your Needles!

Are you looking for some inspirational knitting this winter? Tired of the family complaining when you try to measure them up for a sweater? Well, turn your attention to these gentle creatures.

Onesies are all the rage - particularly with the amount of snow we have had already this winter. So why not polish up your knitting needles for some serious Shetland projects?

These Shetland ponies wearing cardigan sweaters are the official ambassadors of the Visit Scotland tourism campaign. Photographer Rob McDougall captured two cute ponies named Fivla and Vitamin dressed in traditional Fair Isle Scottish cardigans to celebrate the Year of Natural Scotland. Their onesies were made out of Shetland wool by a local knitter Doreen Brown. The ponies live at the Thordale Shetland Stud Centre.


  1. I just found your blog and I very much like what I see. Have to comment because of the cute ponies. I haven't visited Scotland yet but they make me want to even more.
