Katie Steckles is running pi (3.14) kilometres every day in March for Sport Relief, which I found out from her 7-day update here. You can sponsor Katie on her Sport Relief page. 21-day round-up

I made Katie some mitts to run in. On the other side of the π symbol are “some digits of pi” as Katie (very accurately!) described it, and on the other side of Σ is 31 times 3.14, followed by “+n” because Katie has overshot 3.14km a few times already, and I don’t know what the exact final total will be.
In case you don’t know, Wikipedia says:
In mathematics, summation (capital Greek sigma ∑) is the addition of a sequence of numbers; the result is their sum or total.


CO 44 sts. Added 2 sts at beg of row, 4 in between the patterns, 2 at eor.
Worked rib colours, numbers and pi symbol with 4 separate pieces of blue yarn because I didn’t want to carry too far. That made for a lot of ends to weave in, because I split them into 2 plies as the yarn is very silky.
Worked rib as p1, (k2, p2), p1 etc, so my blue yarn wasn’t at eor.


Given to Katie this evening. She likes them, I got a hug :)
