I love this book! I bought a copy in Edinburgh last year and I am delighted to finally have it at Ida's House.
Hilary Grant lives in Orkney - islands at the very north of Scotland - and take inspiration from Fair Isle and Scandinavian knitwear, as well as the stunningly beautiful landscape, to create her own contemporary designs. In Knitting from the North, she has translated the most popular patterns from her luxury Scottish knitwear range and exciting new designs into 30 colourful hand-knitting projects - from a simple red-ribbed Beacon Pom Hat and Wave Circle Scarf to an Icelandic Jumper - to keep your hands and body warm and spirits high. With expert tips on finishing, advice on colour and yarns and inspirational photography that provides a window on life at 59° North, this gorgeous collection celebrates simple, clean shapes that are modern yet timeless.
