    This may be only the second time I have offered a book to you that I have not yet set eyes upon. However, I trust the publisher, and just seeing the cover and reading the blurb has convinced me that this is a must-have for us and our knitters.

Blurb: “• Over 25 gorgeous patterns in vivid colors, brimming with Ødegård's characteristic eye for decorative detail. • A knitting tutorial section, with subsections on needles, yarn, gauge, stitches and finishing techniques, and understanding how to adjust sizing for any design (even your own!) • Designs for the whole family- men's, women's, and children's sweaters and cardigans in multiple sizes, plus a couple bonus accessories.” Sounds great, huh?

  8. In the Footsteps of Sheep

    In the Footsteps of Sheep

    Debbie Zawinski

    From $19.95

     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."
