    Milarrochy Heids

    $42.00

    By: Kate Davies

     Kate Davies loves hat-knitting, and when she developed Milarrochy Tweed – a yarn named after one of her favourite Loch Lomond locations – she knew it was time to create a book of hat designs. Milarrochy Tweed’s complex, tonal shades make it ideal for colourwork of all kinds, so Kate invited twelve friends to join her in the challenge of creating a range of hats of rich variety and hue. Heid is the Scots word for head, and inside these pages you’ll find fifteen fabulous heids to choose from. From Ute Vos’s simple stripes to Virginia Sattler-Reimer’s complex kaleidoscopic crown; from Felicity Ford’s exuberant Featherheid to Emily Williams’ stunning double-knitted Tarradale, the heids in these pages are as varied as their creators. Established designers such as Ella Gordon and Dianna Walla meet emerging talent like Justyna Haberkowa and Sarah Mackay, drawing creative inspiration from landscape and location, flora and fauna, childhood memory and medieval architecture. With an introduction by Kate, and stunning photography around Loch Lomond by Tom Barr, this book is sure to bring you a warm and happy heid.

    Knit, Read, Walk: The West Highland Way

    Kate Davies and Tom Barr live by Scotland’s best-loved long-distance walking route: the West Highland Way. In this collaborative creative project they celebrate their home, their workplace, and the landscape which inspires them every day. Kate began by creating a collection of twelve hand-knit designs, each with its own distinctive story to tell. Balanced equally between garments and accessories, you might choose to knit a tweedy cardigan which echoes the mossy palette of Conic Hill, a delicate jumper recalling a favourite plant found on Rannoch Moor, or a shawl sparked by the energy of the Highlands’ first “electric village”. Each design is paired with an exploratory essay which sets Kate’s designs and inspiration in their richer context.  From Rob Roy’s romantic (mis)representation to the beautiful songs of Donnchadh Bàn; from Loch Lomond’s built environment to ways of seeing Rannoch Moor, Kate’s writing reveals the West Highland Way as, first and foremost, a social landscape with an important cultural history. Kate’s words and designs are accompanied by Tom’s stunning photography, depicting the West Highland Way in all seasons of the year. 

    Why not turn these pages to walk, read and knit with Kate and Tom? Open up this book, join them on their journey, and make your own West Highland Way.

    Knits About Winter

    Pattern previews on Ravelry: https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/sources/knits-about-winter

    Knits About Winter celebrates the quiet magic of a snowy landscape, the meditative joy of creating cosy knits, and the beauty of unique yarn. A collection of 12 knitting patterns by Emily Foden, these designs capture the magic and mystery of winter, all featuring her distinctive hand-dyed yarns.

    Emily moved to the small hamlet of Mooresburg, Canada, to set up her home and dye studio in a 100 year-old general store. In her remote location, winter meant layers of snow and ice, transforming the wild landscape into a sparkling blank canvas that became a valuable source of inspiration. Each pattern draws details from this wintry landscape: soft shapes in the snow, the moon in an icy midnight sky, the delicate evergreen berries. With careful consideration of practical design details that make these knits functional for the coldest of days, Knits About Winter features hats, mittens, socks, shawls, and four garments.

    Also included are Emily’s charming stories of setting up her dye studio, as well as how she developed her colourways and the designs for the book. Photographed by the author during a snowy Mooresburg winter, each image is a peek into the sceney and spaces that were integral to the book.

    Knits About Winter is a book to treasure, and in the colder months will encourage you find the beauty and colour in the darkest season, evoking the warm glow that only beautiful knits can.
