PRE-ORDER. THE BOOK WILL ARRIVE FROM FINLAND EARLY IN NOVEMBER.
From Laine Magazine comes Fair Isle Weekend, a book which will take you on an exciting trip to Fair Isle, a windswept island in Shetland, famous for its traditional colorwork knitting. Mary Jane Mucklestone has created a gorgeous collection of designs which she would take with her for a weekend trip to Shetland when a carry-on bag is all you bring - warm wool knit into colorful patterns. The Laine team's photography combined with Mary Jane's patterns guarantees a beautiful book.
Says Mary Jane: "So I invite you to join us, this small band of traveling friends, sharing a little glimpse of the isle from my outsider’s perspective. I offer you a small collection in my own style of Fair Isle knitting, which I hope honors the tradition, even though my work isn’t especially traditional."
Mary Jane Mucklestone is a knitwear designer, teacher and author who has specialized in Fair Isle knitting, also called stranded knitting.
