Now that I'm finished with my giant blanket, I've felt like I have no projects to do despite having several project requests from others and a few planned for myself. To combat this, I decided to pick a few patterns that I can make with yarn from my stash, write the names down on little pieces of paper, fold them up, and place them in the bag.
A hat for Chatham! He asked me if I could design a hat based on a game called Conway's Game of Life. The game is based on a mathematical equation that determines the movement of squares across a grid based on the surrounding squares. The player creates a starting grid, and then the rest of it is simulated entirely based on an equation. One of the patterns that emerges from this equation is a Glider. Chatham graphed a glider with a 4 stage repeat. The first repeat is on the left, fourth one on the right, and then they start over again with the first one on the left.
