If you are at all interested in the workings of knitting lace, you may be interested to read Kate Davies’ latest blog post on a book review of “A Legacy of Shetland Lace”. Kate is the author of “Colours of Shetland” and the creator of signature knitwear designs.
“I don’t think it is going too far to say that the group of women behind this book are among the best knitters in the world. Their work is certainly the very finest that Britain has to offer. In this wonderful tome, key members of The Shetland Guild of Spinners, Knitters, Weavers and Dyers share their knowledge of the old traditions and contemporary practice of Shetland fine lace knitting.”
While looking for where I could find the book, I also came across a review of the same book by Jamieson & Smith. They have suggested several of their products if you are looking for yarn to knit lace. At the end of the blog post, there is a link for UK readers to order the book. For those in the US, a reader who commented on the post suggested trying The Shetland Times.
