Knitting Nature de Norah Gaughan
I like to keep my design moving forward, and I'm constantly searching magazines, catalogs, and the Internet for détails to add to my design vocabulary. Almost any visual medium is fair game. While planning this book, I found myself newly attuned to related shapes in the world around me. I saw hexagons seemingly everywhere, from columns of basalt on a beach in Iceland to a wasp nest attached to my own front porch. I found them in floor tiles, decorative Windows from India, and textiles as well.
