    As crazy as it sounds, I think this is what crochet did for me. I learned when I was about 9, and I discovered I wanted to make more than just hot pads. I began to learn to make all kinds of shapes and connect them together and even came up with my own way to connect things. I was absolutely thrilled when I learned that there is a bunch of math that can be demonstrated with needle arts.

    Between that and my father being a carpenter for many years, I think I got a good sense of how to use math skills and make things…which makes for a good scientist and engineer.

      I was obsessed with crocheting around that age, too! I didn’t tie it into math though. I think I just liked making things.
