Cover of Fair Isle Weekend

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.

cover of Knitting From Fair Isle

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 Google Play, Amazon, and Barnes & Noble.
