Yoga Pants

Considering that this is my first EVER sewing project,  I'm quite pleased with myself even though the seams are not really straight and there are some parts that I'd do differently next time - but they fit! I used the method from this wonderful video tutorial.

Earring Organizer

Only vaguely related to knitting and yarn ... This earring organizer is made of a cardboard cone, that was used for yarn.
I drilled holes into the cardboard and painted it with acrylic paint - voilà.

Hyperbolic Crochet

I love the idea that some fancy mathematical ideas can best be explained with a crocheted piece of fabric - hyperbolic planes. Here's a video that explains the idea, an interview and here the paper.

Plus, it makes a great bathroom sponge/scrubby :-) 

How to make it

If you want to crochet such a sponge, it's really easy to do: you only need some leftover cotton yarn and the appropriate crochet hook.

Do a magic ring with 6 single crochet stitches.
After that continue to crochet 2 sc into each single crochet (i.e. doubling the number of stitches every round) ... until it's big enough or you run out of yarn.

Crochet Dress

Seen in a shop window in Barcelona. I didn't look for a price tag ... ;-)
