CraftSanity Episode 84: A Conversation with Knitter Cat Bordhi
Cat Bordhi isn't satisfied with doing things the way they've always been done, especially not when it comes to knitting. A curious woman, Bordhi, 57, of Friday Harbor, Wash., uses her inquisitive nature to push the limits and experiment to see what she can create.
The result is a collection of four impressive, knitting books that have established her as an industry expert. From moebius knitting to socks on two circulars, Bordhi is leading todays knitters in exciting new directions and challenging them to take their stitching to the next level combinedbook-cat3.jpg
Tune in this week to find out how this Russian Lit major ended up working as a professional artist, teacher author and knitter and how she's passing the baton by mentoring other knitters interested in self-publishing options.
I interviewed Cat for the podcast and also made her the subject of my weekly art and craft column after I heard that she's on her way to Grand Rapids, Mich. this week to teach some workshops and sign copies of her books.
Hey local knitters! Here's your chance to meet Cat! Cat Bordhi will sign copies of her books from 8 to 9 p.m. Tuesday at City Knitting, 423 Norwood Ave. SE. Also, there may still be openings in her Wednesday sock workshop. The workshop runs from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Cost is $90. Call 454-9276 to register.
Visit Bordhi's website, to find out more her books, for free patterns and teaching aids for incorporating knitting into the classroom.
Love those bags, and meeting Cat would be cool but, lol, would be past my bedtime on a weeknight by the time i got home, lol.
I live several islands away from Cat Bordhi, and the interview was fun, educational and inspirational, as yours always are, Jennifer!

This was such a fun podcast! I loved all that Cat had to say-very inspiring.
Cat is such an interesting person. I've already downloaded her materials for incorporating knitting in a school curriculum.
I really enjoyed this podcast with Cat Bordhi! As I listened I managed to knit a gift for my friend and write down some of the books she listed in the podcast.
I just met Cat a few weeks ago and what a wonderful, energetic person she is!
Loved the interview with Cat ~ and I would second the warning that knitting mobiiiiiii can be addictive!
Cat's an amazing person, and I was very inspired by this show.

Socks Soar on Two Circular Needles
A manual of elegant knitting techniques and patterns
Cat Bordhi
Cat Bordhi's first book has changed the landscape of handknitting socks.
Additionally, Cat is very, very funny to read -- the only trouble I had when trying to follow her instructions was that it's hard to keep track of where you are when you are laughing so much. However, even with that challenge, I did manage to move forward and can now zip along on two circulars as though I've always known how.
Treasure Forest
Cat Bordhi
The BEST juvenile fiction to come along in years -- really ! Cat Bordhi's wonderful novel for young adult readers, Treasure Forest , is a great story you can share with the young people in your life. Knitting and spinning dance through the plot, as a mother spins and knits a yellow sock with a tree design, desperately hoping to draw her daughter back home from the forest, while the brother knits a tree house directly into a tall tree for the same purpose, and a mysterious wise woman teaches the missing girl to spin a timeless connection with those she loves.
