Join knitwear designers Mary Jane Mucklestone and Gudrun Johnston for a true Shetland adventure! Their first co-authored book Grand Shetland Adventure Knits is a love letter to these fascinating islands, their nature, traditions and people. It features 14 knitwear patterns that are perfect for a trip to Shetland: from cozy socks and hats to colourwork sweaters.

Short travel stories showcase some of Mary Jane and Gudrun’s favourite places to visit, taking you on an unforgettable journey to a place that — despite its small size and remote location — has had a great impact on the world of knitting.

Mary Jane Mucklestone, also known as MJ, is a knitwear designer, teacher, and author of several knitting books who is based in Maine. Gudrun Johnston is a Shetland-born knitwear designer currently based in Massachusetts.

This book celebrates Mary Jane Mucklestone and Gudrun Johnston's time on Shetland together, two friends who made the dream of these trips a reality for many.

The essays included touch on some of the things they most enjoy doing and spotlight a few of our favourite places to visit. It's not intended as an in-depth travel guide but rather an invitation that might lead to your own adventure.

"Come along with us. Witness the landscape. Meet the people. And knit. Knit yourself a grand adventure!"

Mary Jane Mucklestone and Gudrun Johnston
