West Highland Way by Kate Davies

Kate Davies newest book is in the shop!

Knit, Read, Walk: The West Highland Way is a collaborative project between Kate Davies and Tom Barr.  Kate has created a collection of twelve hand-knit designs inspired by the West Highland Way.

Each design is accompanied by an essay exploring the area that inspired it and there are many stunning photographs by Tom showing the West Highland Way's natural seasonal beauty.

A gorgeous book for knitters and non knitters too!
