A couple of weeks ago, a fellow blogger had a 'ta-dah' post. The post had the most wonderful title of 'The Cloak of Outrageous Power' - and I whizzed over to have a read straightaway.
I was more than a bit wowed by her creation. A rainbow realta of a blanket. She said I could share one of her pictures here on my blog - so here it is, modelled by Allyson herself - though the blanket is for a friend, one very lucky friend I would say.
It was not long after I read this that my mind started wandering off towards entropy and fractals and I am sure the complexity of Allyson's cloak had something to do with it.
I was equally fascinated by her latest post, in which she confesses that the arrangement of her crocheted octagons was less than random - indeed, it would appear that a fairly sophisticated mathematical approach was taken both in the creation of the octagons and in the positioning for sewing up.
I found it most interesting and also loved the opportunity to see a few more photographs of a very beautiful blanket in its new home - looks just right.
Read the creation post here and the science behind its creation here. Well done Allyson!
