Ooh Shiny: Mathematical Knit Scarves

Whilst browsing my lovely interesting-people-filled Twitter feed this morning I noticed that there’s a Kickstarter I can get behind. Take a look at the video to see what it’s all about:

Fascinating, no?

I love seeing the way people combine their passions. It’s why I started this blog back in the day: I wanted to mix my love of geekery and knitting. Seeing someone combine their interest in mathematics and knitting to create something so beautiful makes me happy on the inside.

These are a bit out of my funds right now but please, go check out the Kickstarter campaign and make sure this gets funded! We need more unique ideas in our world.

  1. If you’re into mathematical knits you should check out the Sockmatician’s work -http://www.ravelry.com/people/sockmatician. He uses double knitting a lot, and makes insanely complex pieces that are often inspired by maths and optical illusions.
