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.

I'm glad I took the class, Kate is an excellent instructor and explains the technique well, but sadly this method is not for me. I find it too slow, and hard to use for more difficult patterns.

Oh! This class was WONDERFUL! :)

I've tried for 5 years (off and on) to master knitting two socks at one time using magic loop, dpns, and knitting one sock then the other on the same needle. I understood it but still felt frustrated and confused when trying it. Sigh.

Kate's explanations and modifications to other people's methods of doing this made all the difference! As I watched I started giggling because a light bulb went off! I GOT IT! Her simplified methods have made all the difference!

I'm now taking another of her classes as I enjoy her methods of teaching so thoroughly! If you're looking for a GREAT instructor for 2 in 1 Socks, THIS IS THE CLASS!!

I love the class. I couldn't get the same color for both socks to work for me so I thought I would try for two pairs in different colors. I have some variegated yarn that I might try next. I haven't gotten to the point of the heel yet, but I am listening to the rest of the class as I work the legs.
I do have one question: for the foot measurement (minus 2 inches for the toe) - do I measure from the back of the heel, or from where the heel connects under the foot?

Virginia - So happy to hear that you are loving the video. For the foot measurement, measure from the tip of your toe to the back tip of your heel and subtract your 2 inches. Happy knitting!

Okay so I am confused what are the things I need to make these socks? They are showing lots of needles which ones are she using, how do I know if it doesn't tell me? Don't know how to rate I just want to know.
Annie's Customer Service

Terry - The pattern with this video requires Size 4 (3.5mm) double pointed needles or long circular needles. We hope that you enjoy the class.

I need more close ups of her hands and the knitting. The important points go to fast. Otherwise it's very good.
