For Pi-Day

MMario's picture

Which is tomorrow, 3/14

Many of My designs tend to start off with every intention of being Pi Shawls but then veer off on strange tangants.

Two designs - one of which is nearly a pure pi, the other is for almost 10 rows.

Ok, so, I didn't work on a shawl, but, an amended version of it -- what I call the "Pi Poncho" where instead of starting out with a solid centre, I start at what would have been the increase to 72 stitches, rib for a collar, and then double that, and then knit the Pi shawl the rest of the way, doubling both depth and width as the pattern says.

...but just AS important -- it was the anniversary of the Master's birth! The great and wonderful Albert Einstein! I had to spend at least PART of the day perusing complex formulae -- literally creating music from them -- yes, creating music!

...and then took a bit of a break to watch the NOVA re-run on fractals!

So, all in all, it was a very productive math and science day yesterday masked by music and art (yeah, that's what they call knitting these days..."art").

For reasons unknown to me I am having the desire to knit lace and I blame it all on you. Seriously considering the Queen Annes Lace Shawl.

Go for it. It's beautiful. You'll love it. And if you give it away, the recipient will love it and love you even more. I knitted three QAL's. Is that a record?

Yes, I have seen many of them on MWK, which is why it was the first thing I thought of when I thought "Lace"

Mario, great patterns. I'm particularly intrigued with PI-neapple but I can't imagine the M15!

I think I may have to try

I think I may have to try out one or both of these. From waht i can tell of the PI-neapple Strudel chart it looks like it would be pretty gorgeous.
