Kathleen Dames is no stranger to Knitty City. This Saturday, Kathleen will be here to present her newest book "I Knit New York: Volume 1 (Knit Like a Local)."
The Big Apple. The City That Never Sleeps. The Empire City. I Knit New York contains ten knitting patterns inspired by the history and geography of the Capital of the World. We asked five of our favorite New Yorkers to design patterns and share their favorite New York secrets from subway to skyscraper.
Designers include Brittney Bailey (b.woolens/Purl Soho), Kathleen Dames (kathleen dames knitwear design), Kirsten Kapur (Through the Loops), Xandy Peters (creator of Fox Paws and other stacked stitches), and Lars Rains (Modern Lopi), plus an essay from Kay Gardiner (the Northern half of Mason-Dixon Knitting), a #buttonhunt in the Garment District with Kathleen Dames (host of The Sweater with Kathleen Dames podcast), and a multiborough yarn crawl with Lisa Chamoff (founder of Indie Untangled).
