Fairisle Gloves

Keeping warm this winter. An early donation to the Collection from Audrie Stratford who gave many items, most of them sourced for the collection specially. These are from Norway, but they are very similar to those found in Shetland. Audrie was the author of several books in the 1970's and 1980's:

Introducing Knitting, Nowadays Knitting for New Knitters, and Better Knitting made easier for Blind People

She was also founder of a charitable trust in her home town of Kings Lynn

Please note spelling differ between the books and the trust Audrey/Audrie
