Starmore, Alice
Bell & Hyman UK 1984 
 Hardcover Did you see "Tractor Monkeys" on TV, where the host revealed he'd been sent to Kindy wearing a knitted orange sort of jump suit? You can avoid that outrage on your kids by referring to Alice Starmore's handy reference (I've checked, there's no orange suits in it). 128pp & just too far over the 500g to go in the smaller satchel (maybe get another book & use up that 3 kg allowance). about Alice >>> Growing up in a traditional Scottish fishing community with Gaelic as her native language, Starmore learned knitting and created her own designs by the age of five. In 1975 she produced a knitwear collection which was sold in London boutiques. In 1978, Starmore was awarded a Winston Churchill Fellowship, under which she travelled to Norway, Sweden and Finland to study their textile traditions. She is an authority on Celtic and Fair Isle design and technique through her books, as well as articles for Threads and Vogue Knitting magazines. She markets her own lines of threads and yarn & has an extensive list of titles to her credit.  Very Good/Very Good
