"At The Crochet Project we love a good shawl, and we know you do too so we are back with another collection.We really weren’t expecting there to be a The Shawl Project: Book Three. Despite so many requests, we decided it wouldn’t be right unless we had a great new idea. Book One was all one skein shawls, Book Two all two skein shawls, Book Three would need to have a purpose too (and three skein shawls seemed a bit tenuous). We knew Book Three was on its way when we were at a wool festival and kept musing on the uses for all the lovely mini skein sets we kept seeing.The patterns work well whether you want to invest in mini skein sets or if you want to use up small amounts of yarn left over from other projects that is just too nice not to use (sock knitters will identify with this problem in particular), with each pattern using either a 100g pack of 4ply mini skeins or a pack of mini skeins and an additional 100g of 4ply yarn.In this book we share our love of shawls with five new designs and show you the secrets of shaping them.Patterns are written using UK crochet terminology with US conversions given in the abbreviations section. Patterns are charted where appropriate. Schematics are provided throughout.A code to download a free pdf version of the book is included in the price. This copy is for personal use only. To download follow the instructions on the back inside cover." (Bron: The Crochet Project)

"With beautiful photography, engaging writing, and signature hand-knit designs, Colours of Shetland will inspire you with the varied shades and hues of Great Britain’s most northerly isles.From writer and designer, Kate Davies, comes a book that brings the process of hand-knit design to life in an exciting new way. In Colours of Shetland, Kate takes you on a northern journey, exploring wild and beautiful island landscapes through words, projects and pictures. Situated in the rich context of the Shetland places, wildlife, objects and people that have inspired Kate, each design in this book has its own engaging ‘colour story’ to tell.Through these pages you will get a taste of the heritage that makes Shetland one of the world’s most knitterly destinations and be inspired to knit with yarn that has a genuine connection to the landscape in which it is produced. Showcasing Jamieson & Smith Jumper Weight, the flagship Shetland yarn with a marvellously varied palette, each project features the clear instructions, beautiful finish and attention to detail that are hallmarks of Kate’s designs.Alongside ten original patterns that are a joy to make and wear, Colours of Shetlandoffers the hand-knitter food for thought and a feast for the eyes."

"Knit, Read, Walk: The West Highland WayKate Davies and Tom Barr live by Scotland’s best-loved long-distance walking route: the West Highland Way. In this collaborative creative project they celebrate their home, their workplace, and the landscape which inspires them every day. Kate began by creating a collection of twelve hand-knit designs, each with its own distinctive story to tell. Balanced equally between garments and accessories, you might choose to knit a tweedy cardigan which echoes the mossy palette of Conic Hill, a delicate jumper recalling a favourite plant found on Rannoch Moor, or a shawl sparked by the energy of the Highlands’ first “electric village”. Each design is paired with an exploratory essay which sets Kate’s designs and inspiration in their richer context. From Rob Roy’s romantic (mis)representation to the beautiful songs of Donnchadh Bàn; from Loch Lomond’s built environment to ways of seeing Rannoch Moor, Kate’s writing reveals the West Highland Way as, first and foremost, a social landscape with an important cultural history. Kate’s words and designs are accompanied by Tom’s stunning photography, depicting the West Highland Way in all seasons of the year. Why not turn these pages to walk, read and knit with Kate and Tom? Open up this book, join them on their journey, and make your own West Highland Way." (Bron: Ravelry)
