"Making Mathematics with Needlework will inspire mathematicians, mathematics educators, and crafters; every chapter has an overview as well as sections on mathematics and mathematics education and detailed instructions for completing the chapter's project. All readers will be able to understand the overview sections, as they include introductions to the various fiber arts as well as summaries of the mathematical content. While the mathematics sections are written for mathematicians, the authors have made a special effort to make their work accessible to lay readers by providing definitions of mathematical terms and many diagrams. The project sections are written for crafters, so that non-mathematician readers can have a tangible experience with mathematical concepts."--BOOK JACKET.

'The Culture of Knitting' addresses and investigates knitting as an aspect of both visual and material culture and as a culture of its own. Knitting is discussed as a practice, a process and a series of objects and artefacts that encompass a variety of different techniques, approaches, and materials, undertaken by both professionals and amateurs. The aim is to uncover the cultural significance of knitting, not just as a 'fashionable' commodity, but as an everyday practice. By uncovering these recognisable practices and objects, the book develops a way of looking at knitting which can encompass the process as well as the object.
