Kate Atherley has a family heritage of knitting. Kate's grandmother, Hilda, passed her love of yarn onto her granddaughter. Kate began knitting at a very young age and has taught herself many techniques over the years. She is particularly passionate about knitting socks.
Kate is a professional technical editor and a seasoned designer and teacher in her own right. Her first book, Beyond Knit & Purl, has been praised as the 21st century "Knitting for Anarchists" book, and her second book, Knit Accessories: Essentials & Variations, was published in late 2012 to great acclaim. Her Basic Ribbed Sock pattern is in the top 10 most popular socks on Ravelry, and her Bigger on the Inside shawl caused a minor sensation when it was released in the spring of 2012.
Kate taught five sold-out classes at Sock Summit 2011, and she regularly teaches at stores and events across North America, including Vogue Knitting Live and Interweave Knitting Lab. Her work has appeared in Creative Knitting magazine, Knitty, Interweave's Sockupied, the U.K. magazine Let's Knit and a wide range of books. See more of her work at www.WisenHeldaKnits.com.
Very good video, your explanations are so easy to understand, but I really would like to see a video with explanations on how to do this on a Magic Loop, not just a short talk about it. I'm talking about a whole video just like the one on the DPs.
This is an awesome video featuring an easy to understand and patient instructor. However, I thought it was about how to double knit using the magic loop method. I'm not sure why but dpn knitting I just cannot seem to get the hang of. I gamely gave it one more try but it's so frustrating for me that I'm giving up my dream of being able to knit socks. The video as I said is awesome and I will continue to purchase classes. Keep up the good work.
Just watched this class and I think it was very well done. Can't wait to start a pair. I suffer from a chronic case of second sockitis, I think the video can cure me haha. Good camera angles and very clear instructions, what's not to like. Thanks.
I'm really enjoying this class and the sock; it's taking me a little while only because I have multi projects going on as well as some spinning that I'm working on too. But I just finished the heels I'm using a size 1 needle and fingering weight yarn fir my first sock. I love the way it's coming out. This has been a fun project. I love the video tutorial too it's been very helpful.
The first part - the rib and ankle are ok - and turned out easy and fun - and then I tried the wrap and turn - Why is it no matter what I do or how I do it - the yarn is crossed and it fuses the sox together!!!? I followed every step - along with the video. Good teacher - and pleasant and easy to understand - but, Wrap and Turn - only makes knots - !
