Math and lace

The Voronoi-Delaunay diagram reminds how the DiBL ground generator builds on a paper by Veronika Irvine. She generates tons of variations of graphs as illustrated with the networks of connected dots. Then I jump in with DiBL to draw stitches on the cells or tiles. Thread diagrams help to study the effect of variations in color or thread size, corresponding color coded diagrams help to create the actual lace.

The diagram editor is built with the same JavaScript library as the Voronoi-Delauny diagrams. These are just two of various inspiring finds. Sad there are way too few hours in a day to get things to a next level for bobbin lace. Really need more (wo)man-power. Any volunteers interested?

  1. Funny experience: Pull up your knee, keep the shower head close on top and you will see these “diagrams” appear.
