Arriving in the shop along with these new Fair Isle kits is the wonderful new book A Fair Isle Nurse by Mona McAlpine, published by Shetland Wool Adventures. This pairing is a match made in Fair Isle heaven and we couldn't resist offering them together in special sets.
This Set Includes:
Tirval's Toorie Kit: Tirval's Toorie Yarn Set is a beautiful hat designed by Sandra Manson that features a corrugated rib, traditional Shetland Motifs, and a tassel to finish it off. The pattern contains instructions to knit longer kep style or a shorter "toorie." This Kit includes the print pattern and all yarn called for in the pattern for the larger size. (5x 25 balls of Jamieson & Smith Heritage Yarn)
About the Book: A Fair Isle Nurse by Mona McAlpine brings us the memoirs of the only medical professional on Fair Isle in the 1960s. Mona arrived as a young nurse on one of the most remote inhabited islands in Britain. As the sole provider of medical care for the local population, her charming story of strength and kindness will inspire us all.
Please note, our books have now arrived and our kits are on their way! We expect these sets will begin shipping to customers the week of May 2nd. Thank you for your understanding and let us know if you have any questions!
