Discoveries in books and knitting

I had a week of finding some new books, among them was the following small volume;

It contains lots of patterns with delightfully difficult names like Aggregation, Anfractuous, Phyllotaxy. They all refer to different patterns found in nature.

I've had this idea of using knitting to respond to the world around me and being so taken with this book I've decided to have a go. The first pattern is Agglomeration which refers to two things not totally mixing.

 This is the first pattern I've tried. One of the difficulties is finding the right size of the pattern. It's about 7cm square, which is about enough to do in a day, if required. It might mean that you could knit en plein aire.

More of this to come.
