Wondering where the name came from? Well, it definitely references the curving, encircling lines of the cowl. I’ve always loved the way that globes’ lines of longitude and latitude swoop tidily over their surface.
But really? It’s a joke about the first version I knit. I went way out of my comfort zone for the colours, picking them in the depths of winter and going for something exciting. I joked that “I’m so far out of my comfort zone that I can’t even see it because of the curvature of the earth!”
And you know, it was a blast to knit something so unlike my usual projects! Hot pink and neon yellow splatters? Wow, did they wake me up and keep me fascinated in the process of working on this simple cowl.
What’s in a name: Curvature of the Earth?
