Thank you, already sent out the link

will see what happens - can't hurt, eh?

Thanks for the link. I'd read about some of that before, but I didn't know all that was in the article.

Chris--apologies. I thought maybe men were such a knitting novelty that they don't get "looked down" on the same way I know knitting women sometimes do...

Guess I shouldn't have been so serious, just the sociologist in me. Thanks for a great site!

I heard a piece on NPR last year about hyperbolic crocheting, and then I saw the coral reef exhibit a few months ago. I'm going to share this article with a math teacher I know. Thanks so much for the link!

Sweet! What really bugs me are those commercials that associate knitting or crochet with dumb little old ladies. Those even make my husband's blood boil!

A woman at the Knit'n'Cafe yesterday was engrossed in hyperbolic crochet in magenta-coloured fibre - it was great to see this 'for real'. Very organic; I understand this translates into the process as well, which is exciting. Thanks for this post and the link. Has anyone (yet) knit an impossible triangle. A sketch is here on my wall of one.....but so far I have not met the challenge.

I believe the item that Captain is referring to is this:

The Institute for Figuring

and specifically:


Crochet Coral Reef,

they are soo cool. There's even a
TED talk about it! very cool.


(ps- forgive me if my links dont work out, i'm not sure if i did it right)
