This is a 2007 reprint of Sarah Don's book originally published in 1980. Prior to the publication of Sharon Miller's Heirloom Lace, this book and Gladys Amedro's Shetland Lace were two of the best available resources for Shetland knitting. Don begins with a brief history of Shetland knitting, followed by an outline of the process for making and dressing gossamer Shetland shawls. This is followed by a stitch dictionary of typical Shetland lace patterns, and patterns for 7 garments. For whatever reason, Lacis elected not to provide charts for this reissue, which somewhat limits its usefulness for modern knitters. ( )

First words
(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.
