What is pi? “pi—which is written as the Greek letter for p, or π—is the ratio of the circumference of any circle to the diameter of that circle”
If you want to know how pi originated click this Scientific American article
Rob this post is for you. Rob is a certified Pie Judge. Here’s a post of National Pie day in January 2012. Sorry I missed National Day Pie Day this year but now it’s Pi Day 3.14.
Did you know you can order Pi Day sock yarn? maybe for next year Fibernymph Dyeworks says “ all of our Pi Day colorways, the striping pattern is based on the numeric sequence of pi – 3.141592…, which is a non-repeating number. Thus, the stripe sequence does not repeat within the skein, and you will not be able to get a matching pair of socks (or anything) from a single skein. But if you’re a math geek, that’s part of the fun! We include a stitch marker affixed to the beginning of the sequence”
Thanks for remembering. So happy you also got it right about National Pie Day which is 1/23 and Pi Day 3/14. Will let you know what pie I bake tomorrow.
Except in Australia, we go DDMMYYYY
Okay I’m totally confused. I get Pie Day (one of my favorites) but you drop and “e”, the Greeks somehow get involved and suddenly it becomes all scientific and you can’t knit a pair of matching socks? The post was saved by including the photo of the hot babe! dc
Happy Pi Day!! (and Happy belated pie day. But any day can be pie day!)
Good point! Pie for everyone, everyday.
Great t-shirt. Gcr
Thanks for the mention and link to my Pi Day yarn! But I agree with others…everyday can be pie day! And if you’re a knitter, everyday is pi day too, if you think about the mathematics of a loop of yarn that creates a knit stitch. 😂
So glad you saw the mention today. I bought your Pi Day yarn at McWalker Yarns as a Gift for a mathematically minded friend. ❤️
Happy Pi Day! I much prefer pie to pi. A math person I am not. Lovin’ that pic of you in the bright pi tee.
I love the Pi shirt and I love pie. You didn’t ask but my favorite is chocolate cream.
Pi day yarn? Yes please! And, what flavor of pie did you make?
Don’t tell. It’s a purchased apple in Ohio
