And yes, I have a couple of Pi Shawls on needles in varying stages. The very first one I ever cast on was the simple Pi Shawl from Elizabeth Zimmerman's (the godmother of reinventing Pi) Almanac. I started it on the way to one of our Knit Camps. EZ says it is the perfect shawl/knitting to take on vacation and I agree. My thought at the time was to use up the leftover brown colorways from my Pelerine I had knitted the Winter before. I'm getting vert close to the end of this one, but when you have a gazillion stitches towards the end, it make take a while.
Last Summer, I got a wild idea to knit on new one from Madelinetosh Pashmina in the Cousteau color way. I bought the yarn when Madtosh first came to our area and had been trying to figure out what to knit with it, when I happened upon the Anniversary Pi Shawl on Ravelry. I know the yarn is a bit dark, but I am hoping when finished and blocked that it will open a bit.
Yep, I am a bit infatuated with Pi, certain that it is because I am a devotee of both Elizabeth and Meg, not because I love Math. It isn't wonderful though that there is a day in my lifetime that we can celebrate Pi. And not just us knitters are doing it!
