In the mids, Edinburgh-based Sheila McGregor visited Shetland with an aim to research its knitting heritage. The establishment of the oil industry concerned McGregor and others about its impact on the traditional way of life. She visited knitters in their homes and at community events and recorded patterns from knitwear held in private and museum collections in Shetland, Edinburgh, Glasgow and London. The importance of her research lies in its comprehensive coverage of different garment types and their pattern motifs. She analysed specific garments and explained their design. Her focus was on recording information from real garments and their knitters, rather than relying on the many romantic and mythical stories which has beset the history of Shetland knitting. Her book remained a top five best-seller in Shetland from August to October

This book is hands down awesome -- the best of the fair isle books I own. The Alice Starmore book of fair isle knitting is great and full of information and great.
