(Publisher's Introduction) The years since THE ART OF SHETLAND LACE KNITTING was first published in 1980 have witnessed a renaissance of lace knitting, due in large part to the efforts of Sarah Don, who brought this ethereal lace from the rugged shores of the Shetland Isles into the everyday knitter's vocabulary.
(Introduction) This book is an introduction to the art of Shetland lace knitting - a fully comprehensive coverage of such a subject would deserve an extremely large and weighty volume.
Sheep have existed on the Shetland Islands since the time of Stone Age man, whose rough stone dwellings can still be seen on the islands.
