The Quiz that Identifies me as a Knitter!

If I were a Springer-Verlag Graduate Text in Mathematics, I would be W.B.R. Lickorish’s An Introduction to Knot Theory.

I am an introduction to mathematical Knot Theory; the theory of knots and links of simple closed curves in three-dimensional space. I consist of a selection of topics which graduate students have found to be a successful introduction to the field. Three distinct techniques are employed; Geometric Topology Manoeuvres, Combinatorics, and Algebraic Topology.

I finished another project that I started last summer. Better late than never. Details about the project (plus cautionary tale about buying cheap yarn), at badmomgoodmom.

More Dyeing Adventures

Dharma Trading sent me a silk cut velvet scarf as part of some promotion some time ago. I actually got around to dyeing it using these instructions before the super bowl yesterday. I used sapphire blue and turquoise procion dyes, pouring them directly on the damp scarf. See the scarf in the plastic shoebox in the kitchen sink?

I then poured in a bit of soda ash and salt solution into the box, put two layers of plastic cling wrap on top, and set it on the sunny flagstone patio during the game. I made the mistake of washing the completed scarf by machine. The fringe knotted up horribly.

I also did a few onesies. Here is my favorite.
