At the very end of 2011, sarah-marie was muttering the song "Favorite Things" (Pomplamoose's version) to herself and accidentally heard herself think, "... and whiskers on mittens..." She then realized that this should be a knitting pattern. So she sketched part of a chart, and then remembered that she doesn't know how to draw. Therefore Madison took over, because she does know how to draw, and Whiskers on Mittens was born. (This is co-designed with Madison Stuart.) BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knit, purl, make 1, knit two together, slip slip knit, grafting (kitchener) stranded colorwork GAUGE 6 stitches per inch and approximately 7 rows per inch in stranded colorwork stockinette SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS hand circumference 8", hand length 7.5" SUGGESTED YARN 185 yards of DK weight PREFERRED BRAND/YARN Valley Yarns Northampton

I'm a math professor by trade, and (unsurprisingly) my designs are informed by mathematical concepts. I co-edited the books <i>Making Mathematics with Needlework: Ten Papers and Ten Projects</i> and <i>Crafting by Concepts: Fiber Arts and Mathematics</i> with my colleague and friend Carolyn Yackel.
