I went to this event today and the workshop afterwards and it was just incredible. There were lots of crocheted cacti, boobs and dinks, lol!

And she does some of this yarny coral reef stuff that's just wicked cool! Genius mathematic hyperbolic crochet.


Wanna see more coral reef? Check out this Ted talk.

There's a kickstarter to get a book published about it which I think is just FanTastic! Nothing like soft fluffy touchable math to take the scare out of numbers.

LOL, you gotta scroll through these pics.

It's beyond funny but is actually part of a greater dialogue regarding early cancer detection, the "props" are used as a humorous intro to a serious topic. A ridiculous ice breaker for teens all the way on up to the older set. The booby bra and apron willy are so awesome.
Along with those and the coral reef project she also makes "plants you can't kill" http://shannongerard.org/plant1.html
She's a gas Cheesy
