Sitting in church this past Sunday my friend started drawing an interesting series of rectangles, triangles, and squares. When she was done she connected them all with a gracefully-drawn spiral. I witnessed the depiction of Fibonacci tiling and the Golden Spiral. My friend is a Math Education major, and as her friend since childhood I get to call her a math geek with impunity. It’s not unusual to see her doodling in her notes with obscure math equations. Doodling, I tell you! Who doodles math??? But this time was different. I had heard of the Fibonacci series before, watched a YouTube video or two about it, and, frankly, it intrigued me. Do you remember what I said earlier about my new passion for knitting? Well ever since Sunday I’ve been daydreaming about knitting a Fibonacci afghan. I think I’m obsessed.
