Sticks, Hooks, and the Mobius: Knit and Crochet Goes Cerebral

What do you think of when you think about ChemKnits? The name of this blog was formed from the fusion of two of my biggest passions, chemistry and knitting. The name of this blog inspired me to design a series of molecule knitting charts and molecule based knitting patterns (including Caffeine Coffee Cozies, Resveratrol Wine Cozies and "Antibacterial" Cozies.)

I know other scientists who knit, but I never realized how many people would be interested in these molecule knitting charts. I am pleased to announce that 10 of my molecule knitting charts will be featured in the exhibit Sticks, Hooks, and the Mobius: Knit and Crochet Goes Cerebral opens at the Williams Center for the Arts Gallery at Lafayette College in Easton, Pennsylvania between Jan 8 - Feb 5, 2012. The curator of the exhibit contacted me last week to ask if she could use some of my charts to be the backdrop of a 3D knit molecule. I answered with a huge yes!

I do not live close enough to Easton, PA to go see the exhibit myself, so I would love to hear your impressions about this exhibit (and not just my tiny piece, there is going to be a lot of cool stuff going on there!)
