From the Shetland Guild of Spinners, Knitters, Weavers and Dyers.
In the 1930s and 1940s, a gentleman named Bill Henry was in charge of the Hosiery Department, or Knitwear, at Anderson & Co. in Lerwick. This was, and still is, a popular business where local knitters could sell their wares to the public.
The hand colored charts in this book come from two notebooks Mr. Henry kept. They are not exhaustive, nor even completely accurate, as a sharp eye might catch a mistake here and there.
They are, however, a fascinating look into color and patterning combinations popular in the early 20th century.
