Guest:
Kathy and Anna discuss how she got into knitting, designing and writing her own patterns as well as her new e-book, Ancient Egypt in Lace and Color.

Printed copies can be purchased through Cooperative Press.

Anna researched ancient Egyptian art and decided to work with the 6 main colors. She designed two shawls for each color in this collection and let the designs develop from the associated meanings of each.

          Kathy’s favorite design,  Nefer                               Anna’s favorite,  Ra and Apep

Anna also discusses her yarn choices, how designs develop after the materials are chosen and how she works to support many independent dyers and smaller yarn companies.
