Fibonacci Rainbow

These last few days have been as long as a piece of yarn what with no schedule or alarm clocks in the morning. I am having an absolute ball exploring the hyperbolic shapes, I have found out what shapes the different rates of increase give, I have played around with yarn and I still am. It is pure heaven.

Many moons ago during art class I fell in love with the Fibonacci numbers. I had a teacher who was very animated about the numbers and the golden rate and the aesthetics of it. To this day, I have a hard time looking at symmetry, I much prefer asymmetry to that rate.

While I think up some colourful coral to done the Red for Energy Coral I have experimented with a Double Hyperbolic Plane which I have worked as a soft and gentle curving piece and I am currently edging it with a row of small tight planes shaped as Swirly-whirlies. The process is exiting as the Kauni Rainbow yarn does it’s magic. I love that yarn. I love the coarseness and I love the colour and I am exited about this piece.

My toxic piece is being thought out too. I wonder when I am going to have time for ‘substanting’ all my ideas
