That is an awesome brainwaves hat! That is not an easy hat to make and yours looks awesome. I like the color combo, too!

Thanks! It was fun to make, until I had to weave in 28 tails! I'll probably make another one before the year is out. It makes a good guy hat, and I never seem to make enough of those... The pattern has a child-sized version, so I may make one of those for the next one.

Challenge/Battle/Alert: Wordy: Haiku
Team/Ninja: Team S & M
Project Geekdom (if any): Real World Math & Science
Bonus Points: Super Nerdy Bonus
Project Name: Haiku Coaster Square
Project Page Link (if available): N/A
Brief Description:
Counting the stitches
Constant tension, edges neat
Rhythm of the hook

As the weather warms up, I'll be drinking more iced beverages. When the cold glass comes into contact with the humid air, moisture in the air will condense onto the glass, run down the glass, and drip onto the table. To prevent water stains, I crocheted a coaster to protect the table next to my usual seat on the sofa. Because today is Memorial Day here in the US, I crocheted this coaster in 5 rows of red, 7 rows of blue/white variegated and 5 rows of red (and then added a picot border). I calculated the stitches in the starting chain so I could achieve a square shape (although it looks rectangular in the photos, it's square in real life).

Project Picture:



And with one of my science geek mugs for an action shot:

I got a question,

can I submit a project for May Challenge in June instead?

I'm not sure if I have enough time to finish it this month.

I have been meaning to make the husband one and if there is a kids pattern maybe a matching one for the baby. He isn't a big "contrast" guy...so maybe shades of blue is the best way to go.

Funny side note: (For the Whovians out there)
I had to sit down directly in front of a lovely older lady (I'll be 39 on Friday so when I say older I mean mid 60's  Wink) and made my blanket apology for my big hair...
She waited a beat and asked if I watch Doctor Who.
I cocked my head to one side and asked "Is it that obvious?" smirk smirk
She then went on to quote from last weeks season finale where the Sontarian asks about "The lady with the big head"
then gets corrected that it's HAIR not HEAD.
I looked at this lady and told her she's wonderful and made my day. River Song (and Merida) has inspired me to embrace my curls and let them do what they will. If the Doctor can appreciate them, that makes strong points with me!

How has no one commented on this awesomeness yet?!?! lol. I love this whole exchange. And though I don't get the reference (I'm stuck on the Netflix timeline for Dr. Who - Noooooooooo!), I DO get embracing your crazy curls (hello fellow curly girl!), and love that River and the Doctor have inspired you to love your curls!

Challenge: May Textbook Prime Numbers

Team:  The Team that goes Bump in the Night

Project Geekdom:  Lovecraft!

Bonus Points: Nerdy, Super Nerdy

Project Name: The Old One

Project Page Link:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=424043.0#axzz2UbJkGoRS

Brief Description: Here is an Old One, from HP Lovecraft's story "At the Mountains of Madness."  These super-intelligent alien creatures exhibit radial symmetry in 5 parts, 5 being a prime number.  Lovecraft nerds will please excuse my taking slight liberties with the design.

"They were the great 'Old Ones' that had filtered down from the stars when the earth was young - the beings whose substance an alien evolution had shaped, and whose powers were such as this planet had never bred."

It is in 1:12 scale, made of felt, with red bead eyes:
