No. 7 / COLOR – Knitting Narratives with Anna Maltz

May 31, 2018

Anna Maltz is charming and delightful, and her voice is strong…as an artist, designer, entrepreneur and story-teller. If you follow her on Instagram, you’re probably familiar with her sweater spotting adventures along with her ingenious new book, Marlisle – a beautiful combination of marled and fair isle knitting. Anna has spent her life exploring as a maker, and observer of beauty, both in the expected and unexpected. Here she share’s a bit of her story and what drives and inspires her. Grab your latest project and have a listen…I hope you enjoy it as much as I have. You can find anna at and on Instagram @sweaterspotter.

    Two comments came up on your no. 7 audio podcast by accident. Please know this was not intentional.

    I love Anna’s design and I love knitting Moeke so this would be a wonderful treasure in my house.

    I loved hearing Anna talk about the people who own their favorite part of the craft. It’s fun to daydream about owning a farm, raising livestock, shearing and spinning and dying… but it’s so much work!!! Appreciating someone for their expertise can be fun too 🙂
