How often does the question “Who discovered this?” pop into your head when seeing a spectacular technique in knitting for the first time?
Join Alasdair Post-Quinn, author of Extreme Double-Knitting, to learn some history of double knitting during this Fiberside Chat. Alasdair will also demonstrate some of the basic and not-so-basic techniques he's developed and honed over the past 15 years, and will show off some of his most interesting samples. He'll answer all your questions about double-knitting, his design process, inspirations, etc. during our hour together. It’s time to adventure into this technique with Alasdair!
Alasdair Post-Quinn, author of “Double or Nothing,” “Extreme Double-Knitting,” and a handful of standalone patterns, has been working to push the boundaries of double-knitting since 2003. He lives in Cambridge, MA; aside from his self-published books and patterns, he frequently teaches workshops (both virtually and in person) for all levels of double-knitting experience.

Launched in May of 2020 by Longmont Yarn Shoppe, Fiberside Chats are gatherings hosted on Zoom. These Zoom meeting are typically one-hour chats with special guests from the fiber community giving us a peek into their world.

There will also be a Q&A session, giveaways, and other fun surprises for those who join!
