Colours of Shetland – Kate Davies

This is a beautiful book – the paper is lovely and the photography spectacular.

It is divided into five sections – with an essay and two designs per section – plus there is a technique section at the end.

I found the essays interesting – Kate’s writing is very evocative there is a strong sense of place.

These are the designs I’m coveting …

Kate says this is probably the most difficult design in the book, but could be attempted by a confident beginner. As much as I love it, I think it is beyond me at this stage.

This one is all about the colours.

This is a lovely book and I think most knitters would love it – even ones like me who just admire the pictures!

There is a code so you can download the e book (when it is available).

Guess What Arrived in My Letter Box?

My Colours of Shetland arrived earlier this week Рit was super fast delivery.

I’ve been reading Kate’s blog for a while and I am always amazed at what a prolific knitter she is! I’m not sure if I am just an incredibly slow knitter or terribly inefficient, but I can’t produce even a quarter of what Kate does.

I’m very keen to attempt some colour knitting next year and I shall read this book with interest – although they might all be beyond me!

On another note school holidays have started and things will probably slow down here a bit. Miss A is still feeling poorly – it’s been two weeks – but the GP assures me it’s just a virus.
