“Knit Real Shetland is a total stunner. Utterly amazing, every last page of it.”
Kate Heppell, Editor of Knit Now magazine.
“Tapping into the romance of the Shetland Isles, with their rustic landscapes and countless sheep flocks, this pattern book is a real escape from modern city living… The 15 designs have a slight vintage feel that fits with the island outlook, while presenting a luscious range of colours and styles that fit right into 21st century fashions… We love the Feathercrest Mittens (even the name makes us a little weak at the knees!) designed by Jared Flood, and autumn-toned Melby Jumper dress by Gudrun Johnson. In fact, there isn’t one item in this collection that we wouldn’t love to wear. Apart from, perhaps, the Osaka Tea Cosy. We’ll leave that to the teapot.”
Judy Darley, TheKnitter.co.uk.
“It was a real honour to be asked to write the introduction to this book, celebrating 65 years of Jamieson & Smith. As well as super designs from names that are no doubt familiar to you, Knit Real Shetland also includes gorgeous patterns from designers you may not have heard of but should know: Mary Kay, Hazel Tindall, Lesley Smith, Joyce Ward and Sandra Manson – lovely women all, and talented Shetland knitters”
Kate Davies, Textisles.
