Upcoming online classes: Math for Knitters

Next Thursday, May 19th, I'm doing the first of a two-part webseminar series on my favourite topic: Math for Knitters. This first one is all about project and pattern math: yarn substitutions, checking gauges, and tricky instructions in patterns like "increase evenly across" and "reversing shapings".

The second part is about garment alterations and adjustments - including what to do if you can't match gauge - and runs June 9th at 1pm.

Both webseminars are recorded, and if you can't attend live, you can watch/listen to the recorded version, at your leisure. For more info and to register visit this webpage.  It's $19.99 to attend live or on-demand, and if you enter the discount code MATH4KNITTERS you'll get a discount on the registration!

You don't have to be good at or love math to attend - precisely the opposite, in fact. My approach is to teach you where numbers can help, and some basic calculations, but just as much to tell you how to avoid doing it if you don't want to. I know not everyone loves spending time doing arithmetic, and even if you do love math, chances are you'd still probably prefer to be knitting than calculating...
