  2. In the Footsteps of Sheep

    In the Footsteps of Sheep

    Debbie Zawinski
    $26.95

    In the Footsteps of Sheep: Tales of a Journey Through Scotland, Walking, Spinning, and Knitting Socks captivated us from the first glance at its striking photographs and the author's beguiling prose. In the Footsteps of Sheep details the completion of a mission the author, Debbie Zawinski, a Welsh-born Scot, set for herself: to travel and camp throughout Scotland, find cast off tufts of wool from 10 Scottish sheep breeds, then spin the wool on her spinning stick while walking (or waiting for ferries), and finally design and knit one pair of socks to represent each breed...all the while writing about her adventures and taking plenty of photographs. Debbie has written beautifully about her journey; the hills, shorelines, and bogs explored; the sheep and people she met along the way; weather both foul and fair, and a particularly exciting chapter about the intriguing St Kilda archipelago and its feral Soay and Boreray sheep.

    The eleven sock patterns, one at the end of each chapter, are a bonus and, for those of us unable to gather and spin our own fleece (!), all were test-knitted with commercial wools. Ten of the patterns represent the different sheep breeds from which Debbie gathered her fleece, and the eleventh combines fleece from all ten breeds into one sock. The designs are knitted from top to toe with different motifs, among them color-patterns, cables, spirals, stripes, Kilt Hose with top-turnovers, and a pair of baby booties. 192 pages, Softcover. (Note to International Customers: I Knit London is a U.K. source and Gemini Fibres is a Canadian source. You may find lower shipping costs by purchasing through suppliers closer to you.)

    From In the Footsteps of Sheep: "Here there are no barbed wire fences, no roads, no gates with stiff spring catches; this is a land of heather, moorland grasses and sphagnum moss. The sheep and I can walk anywhere, uninterrupted. The upper moorlands of a hill top world like this are wastelands for some, fit only for wind turbines, but I feel free in a way I can experience nowhere else."


    From Felicity Ford, author of Knitsonik: "In the Footsteps of Sheep arrived  this morning and you should know that I actually cried for joy just now when I looked through it. What a thoroughly gorgeous and glorious tome, full of sheep and landscapes and knitting with a deeply embedded sense of place. I shall savour every page."

    $27.00

    A knitting book that shows you how to turn everyday inspirations into gorgeous stranded colourwork.

This is the mode used by Felicity Ford to conjure up her idiosyncratic and wonderful color patterns (the 8 Practical Exercises on page 11 will cause you to 'see' anew). She then gives you a step-by-step process to choose colors, sketch the motif, and knit a series of swatches. An altogether lovely and unique book. Softcover. Learn More

    I am delighted to see this valuable book back in print and immediately delved into Cheryl's extensive sizing-section to start a new sweater for my far-away granddaughter. Schematics for 30 standard sizes in 3 basic garment-shapes for kids, women and men, from size 6-months to men's size 50. That is a small taste of the useful, practical and unique data divulged by the author. Actually, her More-or-Less Right Formula is worth the price of the book unto itself. Wonderful!
