About Alasdair Post-Quinn
Alasdair is a computer technician in the Boston area who spends much of his spare time as a knitting designer. He focuses on double-knitting, which creates a fabric with no wrong side. Until recently, a typical double-knit fabric was either tubular or reversible with the opposite side showing a mirror image design in the opposite colors. Over the past few years, knitters here and there have expanded to more complex variations in color and structure. While Alasdair does not claim to be the only designer pushing these boundaries, he is among those on the forefront of double-knitting innovation . His books, Extreme Double-Knitting and Double or Nothing, document his repertoire of esoteric double-knitting techniques, yet he continues to develop techniques and apply them to new designs. Alasdair has been teaching double-knitting around North America since 2005 and regularly adds new techniques and refinements to his workshops so that even experienced double-knitters or previous workshop veterans will have something new to learn.
