Rachel over @ CRAFT pointed out this cozy piece of science. Apinnick was knitting a basic sweater for her husband, when they decided to change gears and do something a bit different. Brainstroming commenced –
Baruch is a microbiologist in the pharmaceutical industry. I thought about it and studied his sketches. The angles of the lines and the hexagons looked like a charterâ€™s nightmare and I decided, in the end, that I wouldnâ€™t be able to translate them into knitting, not in the immediate future.
â€œHow about the Periodic Table?â€
I pondered for 2 minutes, then said, â€œThatâ€™s do-able.â€ He photocopied the periodic table from his highschool chemistry textbook and I charted the actinides and lanthanides. Halfway through the lanthanides, I realised that I didnâ€™t need a chart after all and just knitted it directly from the photocopy. Any mistakes were corrected later with duplicate stitch.
