In his master's steps he trod where the snow lay dinted

Today's post about the overlooked value of a unisex hat is at Toxophily.


Ever since I crocheted a couple of quasi-hyperbolic shapes earlier this year, I've wanted to know more about these alternative geometries, and how it happens that crochet is one of the only media in which they can be approximated and modeled. It so happens that the Hyperbolic Crochet Coral Reef installation is now on display at the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History in Washington, DC. If you are going to be in the nation's capital before April of next year, stop by and see a roomful of hyperbolic shapes reproduced in yarn!

I was there last week with the in-laws. We saw it... it was huge and very colorful!
