I got this email from Susan Goldstine today:
In case any of you are interested in learning more about those bead crochet bracelets I'm always carrying around, I'll be giving a Natural Sciences and Mathematics Colloquium talk at St. Mary's College this Wednesday at 4:40 in Schaefer Hall 106 (the small auditorium in the math/physics/bio building). The talk is open to the public, so I'd be delighted if you came by.
The talk will naturally have some math in it, but it's meant for a general audience, and it will also show you a lot of the bracelets that I and my collaborators have designed, as well as what the crochet process actually looks like and what I've learned about designing with beads.
If you are free Wednesday afternoon, please come join us!
Susan Goldstine, a professor of mathematics at St. Mary's College of Maryland, does lots of cool knitting as well. She tends to like knitting things with an interesting construction, or in lace patterns. You can see her work here and on Ravelry here.
