Some one is knitting topographical surfaces:

Not sure I understand the mathematics involved, but these are very interesting. How do you think you wear it? Visit Dr Sarah-Marie Belcastro for information about her work and other information about mathematical knitting. There is even a book – hmm, now, I know what I want for my birthday. I think I’ll have to start with a basic mobius strip. I’ve made one the easy way – knitting a long strip and grafting together, but not this way where the mobius knit is part of the knitting.

  1. Excellent material. Perhaps this is the way to fold proteins and maybe I should take up knitting. Excellent sunsets above & good luck with the new job.
