Stained Glass and Serendipity

Talk of Fibonacci intervals, prime numbers and cellular automata led to the creation of a new sweater pattern by un ami de loin who's becoming a muse of sorts:

The conversation turned to Chartres, of gothic cathedrals and of stained glass. Still tasting that clear, deep, velvety Chartres Blue

Which I guess leads us back to the subject of cellular automata, now, doesn't it.
Funny how that works.
