Mathematical studies of nature's forms: spirals, octagons, hexagons, etc. A worthy experiment, of which 2 or 3 projects are worth knitting up. Not everything that comes out of the Lab is immediately applicable, but it's all part of learning where we can develop next.

Beautiful, fascinating designs. Strangers will come up to you on the street, and ask "where did you get that?!" One problem: Ms. Gaughan apparently designs sweaters by her own, apple-shaped body. So they'll be fine if you are an apple, or straight-up-and-down. If you're an hourglass or pear, be prepared to do some fairly sophisticated taking in and letting out, or you will have cloth flapping around your middle.
