View Full Version : Knitting (and crocheting!) Math

This article (http://www.sciencenews.org/articles/20061223/bob10.asp) was posted to my local SNB group list, and I thought it was really interesting! A quick google search of some of the mathematical principals that were NOT pictured led me to This Website (http://www.toroidalsnark.net/mkexh2005/mkexh2005.html) which shows a lot of other mathematical models made using the fiber arts. I thought it was fascinating, and I thought I'd share!
