November 12, 2019 Programme – Kate Atherley: M is for Math, and Also for Mittens
Kate Atherley's path to a career in knitwear design is the same as everyone else's, really: A degree in theoretical mathematics, a decade or so in software development, yadda yadda yadda, and now she's published more than three hundred designs and six books, with three more in development. (Books, that is.) What happened in the middle? How does a designer develop her own inimitable style, get concepts from her brain onto a chart and then teach other people how to read that chart? Join her for the evening and she'll tell you.
"Kate is Knitty.com's Managing Technical Editor, and a seasoned designer and teacher of all things knitterly.
Her latest book, The Knitter’s Dictionary, is an easy-to-use and friendly guide to the language of knitting. A reference book and a guide to pattern reading all in one, it covers topics from Gauge to Yarn Barf. It received a starred review in Publisher’s Weekly."
