I recently learned how to crochet and knit, inspired by a lecture by mathematician Dana Taimina. Through her lecture, I learned about The Coral Reef Project. You can watch Margaret Wertheim’s TED talk here. As I love to climb, it seemed only natural to experiment with knitting and crocheting using climbing ropes.
How to make giant knitting needles using tape, candle holders, and garden stakes (purchased in Boulder, CO at Greenwood Wildlife Thriftshop and McGuckin Hardware, where people were super friendly and helpful):
Thanks to Green Guru for donating used climbing ropes.
