"Kate’s new book is a celebration of the life and landscape around her home in the Scottish Highlands. Designed especially for Kate’s new yarn, Buachaille, the book includes twelve patterns created for the great Scottish outdoors … and the indoors, too. These accessories will keep out the cold while walking the hills, or warm you by the fire after a long day’s hiking. As well as Kate’s patterns, the book includes five delicious highland recipes by Tom Barr, together with essays, interviews, and a walk up Buachaille Etive Mor (the iconic munro, which gave its name to Kate’s yarn) with mountain leader, Gordon Anderson."

Recounting tales of childhood and adulthood, family, friends, adventure, privacy, disappointment, love, and celebration, she hits upon the universal truths that drive knitters to create and explores the ways in which knitting can be looked at as a metaphor for so many other things. Put simply, "No matter how perfect any one sweater may be, it's only human to crave another. And another, and another."
