Color, shape, and texture endlessly inspire me. For several years, Ive been wholly consumed by knittingbecause its so forgiving, so flexible, and so free to the imagination. It also fits neatly into spare pockets of space & time, which makes it accessible to me, as designer, knitter, and mother of two busy little girls.
I design the majority of what I knit, and self-publish the majority of it via Ravelry and here on Craftsy. The exceptions have been published in Interweave Knits Accessories 2011, Sanguine Gryphon, and with a Calgary-centric yarn club.
Sometimes Pi is like a Frisbee, other times its 3.1415927... The Chudnovskys may not be as well known; they're mathematician brothers who calculated Pi to several billion digits using a supercomputer they built in their apartment.
The shawl is based on EZ's Pi shawl, and starts as a half-circle. Like Pi, it extends, and in fact it is greater than a circle by the time you finish. The edging (knit on sideways) shows off the color changes in highly variegated yarns and ensures a nice, elastic edge. Perfect for travel knitting, the pattern rows are simple and interspersed by soothing stockinette. Stitch counts are provided for each row.
It's show in Fleece Artist's Merino Angel, which is a fingering held together with a very fine kid mohair. It is sometimes availabe spun together - be sure to check the yardages as they sometimes vary. I've also seen it worked in a single yarn, from fingering to DK; adjust your gauge and yardages accordingly and expect a different;y sized finished object!
I'm proud to say that this particular shawl was entered at the Calgary Stampede's Western Showcase and won a first place ribbon.
