In Knitting from the North Hilary Grant - who lives in Orkney, at the very north of Scotland, closer to Norway than London - has translated her most popular patterns from her luxury Scottish knitwear range into 30 colourful hand-knitting projects - hats, mittens, scarves and jumpers - to keep your hands warm and spirits high. Simple, clean shapes ensure that pattern and colour are at the forefront, creating modern yet timeless designs. Each project follows a pattern with a mitten, hat and scarf variation for a whole winter collection of accessories. Hilary also shares her inspiration behind the patterns, expert tips on finishing, as well as advice on colour and selecting yarns that enhance the lustre of the natural fibres, while inspirational photography provides a window on life at 59 North.

Inspired by the sublime, subtle tones of wintry northern landscapes, the more than 35 projects in Shades of Winter showcase the natural beauty of pure undyed wool yarn photographed against the Scandinavian winter's snow crystals and cold. These gorgeous garments--from tops, sweaters, dresses, and coats to hats, mittens, scarves, and shawls--evoke wool's warmth and softness in many different patterns and textures. A knitter of any skill level and inclination will surely become enchanted by the possibilities: garments ranging from simple garter and stockinette to more elaborate cables, bobbles, texture, and lace patterns. Knitting with eco-friendly undyed wool creates a rich, visually organic theme for the book. The chapters are organized by the natural tones of the yarns: white, gray, and beige. These fine woolens are not only visually stunning, but hold the promise of doing no harm to the environment. Knitters will be transported by the book's artful photography, taken in one of Sweden's most exotic and famous locations, the Ice Hotel in Jukkasjarvi. Here, stylish knits are viewed in a dreamlike atmosphere, where ice columns and ice crystal crowns in the pillared hall range in color from the iciest light blue to the deepest petroleum blue. The only shivers a knitter will feel are those of pure delight at the contrast of woolen warmth next to icy environs. Like a modern fairy tale, Shades of Winter will captivate any knitter.
