Ancient Egypt in Lace and Color Reviews
Great book! I plan to make several of the shawls
Gave this as a gift, she loved it, and loved the stories before each pattern.
Gorgeous shawls! There is a variety of shapes so everyone can find a shawl they would like to knit. Colors are lovely and the little blurb with each is a fun extra. This will become one of my favorite shawl books in the knitting bookshelf.
I haven't knit any of these yet but would like to do almost every one of them. I have read through some of the commentary and it was very interesting. This is a great book and well worth the price.
I love all 3 of Annas books and I use 1 copy as a work book and keep the other copy Well done Anna
ANCIENT EGYPT IN LACE AND COLOR is a paperback collection of 12 attractive lace shawl patterns. Each pattern is introduced by the entertaining Egyptian folk tale or historical fact that inspired the shawl. For example, the "Osiris" shawl has motifs (13 full moons, a fish, and leaves) that symbolize the 14 pieces of Osiris' body and the cedar tree where Osiris' coffin lodged after floating down the Nile.
I got this book as a First Read Winner and it is quiet stunning. I love the stories and patterns in the book and I can't wait until I will be able to master one. I think you would have to be an advanced knitter to master them but either way the stories make it worth your while even if you don't know how to knit. I will definitely give them a try.
