Guest:
 Kathy talks with Heather Ordover about her new book: What (Else) would Madame Defarge Knit?, the sequel to What Would Madame Defarge Knit?

Heather runs the Craftlit podcast and site, and while reading A Tale of Two Cities, she was inspired to wonder what Madame Defarge WOULD knit? As the book idea began to take shape she wanted to make sure the designers not only got paid, but were able to actually recoup the costs of their time spent creating those designs, and to have the book printed in the US, so she worked with Cooperative Press to make it happen.

Iseult’s Dress from What (Else) Would Madame Defarge Knit?, knit in Harrisville Deigns Highland.

The books are divided into thematic sections related to classic literature and each pattern is accompanied by a wonderful essay. WWMDfK- the Shakespeare edition and a Mme Defarge goes Medieval edition are in the works.
