In Colours of Shetland, Kate takes you on a northern journey, exploring wild and beautiful island landscapes through words, projects and pictures. Situated in the rich context of the Shetland places, wildlife, objects and people that have inspired Kate, each design in this book has its own engaging ‘colour story’ to tell.Through the pages of this book, you will get a taste of the heritage that makes Shetland one of the world’s most knitterly destinations, and be inspired to knit with yarn that has a genuine connection to the landscape in which it is produced. Showcasing Jamieson and Smith Jumper Weight, the flagship Shetland yarn with a marvellously varied palette, each project features the clear instructions and attention to detail that are hallmarks of Kate’s designs.Alongside ten original patterns that are a joy to make and wear, Colours of Shetland offers the hand-knitter food for thought and a feast for the eyes.

    A gorgeous book that contains 10 knitting patterns, but an equal amount of history and culture of Shetland. The photography is gorgeous. At this time, the book is only available directly from the author, but will be made widely available early in 2013. I couldn't wait so I paid £7.95 to have a book costing £14.95 sent from Edinburgh where the author lives.This book arrived today and I sat right down and read it cover to cover.
