Here’s an article that rises above the usual run of cutesy "ain’t your gramma’s knittin’" drivel:
It’s wildly immodest to quote oneself, but it’s an "I told you so" moment. I posted this to the KnitList back around ’95: "Knitting is at its fundamentals, a binary code featuring top-down design, standardized submodules, and recursive logic that relies on ratios, mathematical principles, and an intuitive grasp of three-dimensional geometry."
So all knitters should hold their heads high. Even the most math-anxious among usare using neurons that have atrophied among the population as a whole.
