Two always-reliable sources of inspiration for knitting projects are science and the natural world. Two of my favorite sequences are the colors of the rainbow and the Fibonacci sequence. A rainbow is easily described by the order of the colors: ROYGBIV (red-orange-yellow-green-blue-indigo-violet.) The Fibonacci sequence is a set of numbers that starts with a one or a zero, followed by a one, and proceeds based on the rule that each number is equal to the sum of the preceding two numbers. For my stripe pattern I melded ROYGBIV and the Fibonacci sequence. In my scarf, which is about 6 feet long, the pattern did not repeat. I added white bands on the ends because white light is the sum of all colors of light. You can make a vibrant, colorful blanket following this same pattern of colors.

Yarn arts have been a part of my life since my mom taught me to knit when I was 10. My house is full of sweaters, mittens, dish towels, dolls, bath mats, and other items I've knitted or crocheted. Loved ones stay warm with my hand-knitted socks, gloves, hats, and scarves. Many of them are my own designs. I love sharing my creations with other yarn artists.
