    Author Information
    Madeline Weston and her partner opened their shop The Scottish Merchant in Covent Garden in 1970, and for 20 years it was known as "the" place in London for buying beautifully made, authentic garments sourced from all parts of the British Isles. An expert in traditional knitting patterns, Madeline is the author of two previous books: "Country Weekend Knits" and "Country Weekend Socks." Rita Taylor has been a keen knitter since childhood, with a particular interest in traditional Scottish knits, especially Fair Isle and fishermen's knits. She now manages the Gansey and the Period Garment Schemes for the UK Knitting & Crochet Guild and is involved with the re-creation of ganseys for the Moray Firth Partnership. She is the author of "Knitting; 200 Questions and Answers "and the designer of many garments in 1930s and 1940s styles for period dramas in both theater and film.
