      Those interested in different lace traditions will be excited by the collection of specifically-Shetland stitches. And as more knitters want to stretch themselves and learn new techniques, this book will be a useful guide aimed at helping these knitters take their first steps in making a Shetland lace project.   This is a really excellent book on the art and craft of Shetland lace. It starts with a history of Shetland lace knitting, then moves into a primer on lace knitting in general -- stitch techniques, how to read a chart, things of that nature/5(21).

      RAVEN BLACK, the first of the series, won the CWA Gold Dagger, and was adapted as a radio show in both the UK and Germany. RED BONES was made into a popular TV drama and six more episodes will be broadcast this year by the BBC under the series title SHETLAND. The books have been translated into more than 25 languages.

      Praise for the Shetland Island series: "Ann Cleeves confirms that she is the best living evoker of landscape with Cold Earth."—The Guardian, Best Crime Books and Thrillers of "Nothing short of riveting." —Louise Penny "In true Christie fashion, Cleeves once more pulls the wool over our eyes with cunning and conviction.".

E-book excerpt This book looks at the evolution of rural settlement in Scotland from the Mesolithic period through to the improving movement of the 18th and 19th centuries.

The main emphasis is on changes in society and technology, but the book also considers how the development of the physical landscape laid the foundation for such changes.

The Making of the Shetland Landscape Hardcover – 1 Jan. by Susan Knox (Author)Author: Susan Knox. During World War 2, brave Shetlanders and Norwegians operated a fishing vessel between Shetland and occupied Norway. This book is written by David Howarth, who was second in command of the Shetland base, and offers a unique insight into the.

During glacial times, a large amount of water was locked away as ice, making sea levels considerably lower. Only when the ice began to melt s years ago did the seas begin to rise.

Much of Shetland became a flooded landscape as the lower ends of its valleys drowned beneath the rising waters. Numerous sea inlets - the ‘voes’ now. The landscape of Shetland has been sculpted from this diverse geology by rivers, glaciers and the sea over the last few million years.

Major landforms survive from before the Ice Age, notably the great granite whaleback of Ronas Hill. Entitled The Shetland Isles, the book looks at a variety of historical, geographical and cultural aspects of the islands, and is at the same time both scholarly and accessible to the general reader.

With a similar content and equally well written is the publication just titled Shetland in the David and Charles Islands series by local writer James R. Nicolson. The Making of the English Landscape is a book by the English local historian William George Hoskins. It is illustrated with 82 monochrome plates, mostly photographs by Hoskins himself, and 17 maps or plans.

The Shetland Quartet by Ann Cleeves, who previously lived in. In A Shetland Landscape () The journey to create this piece of work began about 18 months ago when ceramic artist Kay Aplin and I were awarded a New Collaborations Bursary from a-n to travel to the Shetland Isles to investigate making a collaborative exhibition about landscape in sound and ceramics.

Shetland's 'jigsaw' shape makes the coastline amazingly long - at least 1, miles (2,km). This is a very old landscape.

Although repeatedly flooded by the sea, the basic shape of Shetland has probably changed little for many millions of years. The landscape and the clear, northern light of Shetland have inspired hundreds of artists, from the 19th century illustrator John T Reid - whose volume, ‘Art Rambles in Shetland’ is still in print – to some of the Scottish Colourists in the early 20th century.

In Colours of Shetland, Kate takes you on a northern journey, exploring wild and beautiful island landscapes through words, projects and pictures. Situated in the rich context of the Shetland places, wildlife, objects and people that have inspired Kate, each design in this book has its own engaging ‘colour story’ to tell.

From mid-summer with nearly 24 hours of day light to the stormy winter Shetland days any time of the year you can make compelling imagery of the wild lands of the Shetland Isles. The Shetland landscape is beautiful, peaceful, isolated and full of history.

It is as important to the story as any of the people. I look forward to the season. I appreciate this type of crime story so much. For me the British deliver the best treatment of a murder mystery.

This is the way to tell this type of story. The fascination endures, I'm happy to say, but it all started with my Auden-inspired reading of WG Hoskins's wonderful book. • A new edition of The Making of the English Landscape .I wanted to use a limited pallet but with a multitude of shades.

I love Jamiesons of Shetland wool for several reasons, it is produced and spun in Shetland and it comes in a truly impressive range of colours. It’s a dream for a knitwear designer passionate about shades - the dyes reflect very well the shades of the Shetland landscape.
