I now have a few copies of Shetland Wool Adventures Journal Volume 1.
This is a 164 page journal celebrating all things Shetland – walks, stories, interviews, recipes, etc. –
as well as knitting. There are 6 knitting patterns: fingerless mitts, 2 hats, a shawl, a snood, and gloves.

I can supply yarn pacs in Jamieson yarns for two
recent Fair Isle Knitting books.
Mary Jane Mucklestone's Fair Isle Weekend takes
you on a trip to Fair Isle. The book includes 8 colorwork patterns to knit in shetland wool: 2 sweaters,
a vest, 2 hats, a cowl, fingerless mitts, and wristlets. The sweater patterns are written for
a wide range of women's sizes. I can supply the book and yarn pacs.
Knitting From Fair Isle by Mati
Ventrillon includes 15 contemporary designs inspired by tradition. Each design is written in 3 different
colorways of Jamieson Spindrift: 2 grayscale colors,
4-5 traditional colors, and a blue or olive colorway using 6-8 colors. The designs are based on a common
set of motifs and include fingerless mitts, wrist warmers, hats, scarves, a neck warmer, a vest, a poncho,
and pullovers for men and women. I do not have a wholesale source for this book, so can only supply the
yarn pacs. The e-book version is available through
and Barnes & Noble.

Pre-order the new Lykke Ball Winder
now! This ball winder is available in sustainably sourced Mangowood or Indian Rosewood. The company is expecting
to ship these in mid January, but if you place an order now, you will not be charged until the winder is ready to
ship to you. $100.00.
A new supply of Frangipani 5-ply Guernsey Wool has also arrived.
This is available in 500gm cones, or I can wind off a 240yd (about 100gm) ball for you. Aran and Dark Navy are back
in stock, and Bottle and Helford Blue (shown here) are new to us. Newly arrived cones are $60. 240yd balls are $15.
During the COVID-19 lockdowns, Knitting Fever is making some kits available
that they will drop-ship directly to USA addresses. The first 2 kits are designs from
Noro Magazine #12 and include the required yarn, a free copy of the magazine, and free shipping
directly from Knitting Fever to you.

The 2020 Shetland Wool Week pattern, Katie's Kep, is now available free on their site.
The colorway shown here is knit in 5 colors of Jamieson Spindrift.
I currently have enough of the colors used for 5 yarnpacs.
Once that's gone, I will not be able to get all the colors used until Jamieson's resumes shipping from the UK to my US supplier.
