That looks like such a neat book.

I'm fascinated by traditional knitting and how other cultures knit... I would love to take a class on it or something. :)

Maybe she lives there and appreciates the beauty of African design.

Nice patterns!

I was thinking the same thing. I'm not saying the designer had to be black, it really doesn't matter either way. It just would've been nice if she had been. But it's still very cool. http://img26.exs.cx/img26/2245/thumbsup8de.gif
