Fad or classic resurgent,
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Art of Fair Isle Knitting: History, Technique, Colour and Pattern (Gebundene Ausgabe)At this time it looks as though the art of Fair Isle is making a huge comeback. Books that are out of print are selling for ten times the original price. Old magazines are being sought in every nook and cranny. Newer yarns are now colored to automatically create Fair Isle color patterns.
This particular book was written by Ann Feitelson who spent considerable time on the Shetland Islands and short of being a native is the closes you will get to the History, Technique, and Color & Patterns in the art of Fair Isle Knitting.
This book is more than just patterns; yet there are some classics of socks, gloves, mittens, scarves, and mostly swatters. The real worth that makes this book stand out from the others is the history with pictures in monochrome and color.
You may have to learn a few new terms:
A few of the garments also have different names. But their purpose is unmistakable.
This book besides being practical is a great addition to any library.
