While hiking up Pole Canyon in Great Basin National Park, I rounded a bend of pines and aspens and came across a grove of horsetail that took me by surprise. The delight at seeing these plants of my childhood made me stop in thought. The fascination of how they grew (and how they pulled apart) came back to me from my youth. Did you know that the spacing of the nodes inspired John Napier to discover logarithms? I wanted to capture this childlike wonder in a scarf for kids and adults alike. Before I was even finished, Tommy had already claimed it as his own.
