I couldn't wait to get home and read this! Author Sara-Marie Belcastro wrote about her early years of knitting. But it was her first year in graduate school that she knitted a Klein bottle. Remember the Mobius scarves? In 1989 Elizabeth Zimmerman created one to be worn as a scarf. I knitted one several years back with the help of Cat Bordhi's A Treasury of Magical Knitting. I was thinking the other day of making another one. I love her Moebius Cast On (MCO). How do you spell Mobius? With an "e" in it or not? I see it both ways.
There is mention of mathematical knitting books such as Carolyn Yackel: Making Mathematics with Needlework coedited by Sarah-Marie Belcastro and Crafting by Concepts (2011).
I am so excited about this article that I'm still reading it as I'm typing this to you! Go out and get the magazine. You will be pleasantly surprised.
An idea just flashed by. Knitting mathematical fabrics would be a great Girl Scout project!
Knitting is not just for old people and grandmas! There is a true science to it.
