A Shet­land Story

The Knitter - - The Knitter loves - By Jamieson & Smith

Telling the story of yarn com­pany Jamieson & Smith, this lovely new book will ap­peal to any­one with an in­ter­est in the knit­ting tra­di­tions of the Shet­land is­lands. The book ex­plores the his­tory of the brand, which has been buy­ing and sell­ing Shet­land wool since the 1930s. To cel­e­brate the com­pany’s her­itage and its fu­ture, the book con­tains 10 brand-new knit­ting pat­terns.

Mary Hen­der­son con­trib­utes three de­signs: a mod­ern Fair Isle jumper in Shet­land Aran Worsted, and a clas­sic Fair Isle scarf and tam. Other ac­ces­sories in­clude a honeycomb cowl, mod­ern leg­warm­ers, and Fair Isle socks.

There’s a hand­some sweater and vest for men us­ing nat­u­ral shades, de­signed by San­dra Man­son, a shawl by Gu­drun John­ston in­spired by Shet­land lace tra­di­tions, and Mary Jane Muck­le­stone’s ‘Vaara Vest’ which com­bines 10 colours of J&S Her­itage. £19.99. www.shet­land­wool­bro­kers.co.uk 01595 693579
