    One of the loveliest knitting books I've seen. I saw it in Water

    One of the loveliest knitting books I've seen. I saw it in Waterstone's in Edinburgh, Scotland and loved it but didn't have room in my suitcase for it. So glad it's available in the USA! The patterns are all fresh and current. Another excellent and unique book is "Colours of Shetland" by Kate Davies. Talented and gifted ladies!
