  1. The Vintage Shetland Project - Preorder
    $79.95

    Out of stock

    Our initial order of books has sold out and the wait time for the new printing is currently estimated at 8-10 weeks; however, if you email Tami at info@schoolhousepress.com, she will put your name on a list to contact when we have stock, and we will honor the pre-order price. If you ordered previously, you will receive the book in June. The long wait for this book is well worth it. Eight years ago Susan Crawford undertook a prodigious research venture, and began a study of some of the knitted Shetland artifacts - from 1920 to 1950 - in the Museum archives. The first half of the book describes in detail her journey and fascinating discoveries. With painstaking accuracy, the second half provides instructions for the 27 garments she chose to study. This monumental work is, indeed, a gift to the knitting community. From the back cover blurb: "The Vintage Shetland Project, is the culmination of eight years of hard work and personal determination. Inspired by the patterns and colours of Shetland knitting, the fashion historian, author, designer and publisher Susan Crawford began a journey into the rich heritage of Shetland knitwear, and in particular the pieces held in the Shetland Museum archive. With the help of Dr Carol Christiansen, the museum’s curator, Susan undertook the task of carefully selecting the most stunning and original designs from the 1920s to the 1950s, transcribed them stitch by stitch, and has here recreated them for the modern knitter, in stunning detail and a range of sizes for women and men. In combination with the collection of 27 comprehensive patterns for garments and accessories are carefully researched essays exploring the stories behind each piece and honouring their creators – some famous, some forgotten. Photographed by Susan on the island of Vaila, situated off the west coast of Shetland, this book also celebrates the untameable beauty of Shetland itself. Compiled with Susan’s trademark attention to detail, this book is a fabulous treasury of Shetland knitting design and a valuable insight into its textile traditions. It offers you the chance to delve into a fascinating era for knitwear design and to bring it to life in stitch-perfect vintage style." Learn More

  3. Knitsonik, Colourwork Playbook & Companion

    From $11.00

    Fans of Felicity Ford’s first book (Knitsonik, Stranded Colourwork Sourcebook) will be pleased to see her two new titles: Stranded Colourwork Playbook and Playbook Colouring Companion. Many books encourage knitters to take inspiration from a photo or a painting, choosing all the colors included and then swatching to see which shades to keep, which to eliminate, along with understanding how to combine the chosen ones.

    The Stranded Colourwork Playbook picks up where Felicity Ford's first book left off as you begin to see your surroundings through the author's eyes. If you have a daily routine, begin to look anew at the mundane items you see every day, and imagine them as pattern sources. For instance, there is a 12-page chapter which hones in on the varied colors and arrangements of bricks in houses in the author's neighbourhood. Bricks to Knit, with - literally - dozens of motif combinations and color possibilities. Projects may be small (Polka Dots & Dolls, or Buntings), or full semi-circular color-patterned shawls.There are plenty of charts with possible color-combinations offered.

    But that isn't all. Voilá, The author has also created a companion book that is much more than a coloring book. Playbook Colouring Companion allows you to find your own sources of inspiration. Here you will find many of the motifs from the Colourwork book, repeated numerous times, so you can experiment, through pencil coloring, with a variety of color possibilities.

    How's this for a new approach to knitting mittens? So EZ asked in 1972 (Wool Gathering #6) about her Sideways Mystery Mittens, and they are as surprising and fresh today as they were then. In addition to the clever design, because this mitten is ambidextrous, you can give them in threes-to those who are liable to lose a mitten. The pattern instructions are updated from Knitting Around. Mittens are knit in Ultra Alpaca. One skein makes two mittens.
