This one's a 'keeper,' even if only for the visuals alone. The photos are crisp, clear, and varied—many of which I've not seen in other books on the Shetland two-colour techniques. Ms. Feitelson's journalistic approach to history and design serve her well, because she evidently knew what questions to ask in order to pinpoint what exactly it is that separates Fair Isle from other jacquard styles. In addition, her fine arts background enables her to explain the application of colour theory to Shetland wools in a way that we can understand. So, ironically, it's mildly disappointing to me that the remainder of the book is her own designs. Yes, they're lovely, but after so much teaching, I'm ready to apply what I've learned for myself—to shadow the leader, not blindly follow her!
