The Complete Hyperbolic Crochet Video - Pseudosphere

Hyperbolic Crochet has really taken hold of my imagination. I grew up with a love of geometry and maths, though I'm not blessed with higher maths skills, the patterns, designs and geometry that you can create in a mathematical manner are fascinating.
I made a video a little while ago, that consists of still images 'animated'. It has proven quite popular, so I decided to take the demonstration to the next level by videoing the creation of a Hyperbolic Pseudosphere from beginning to end. In total 152 minutes and 32 seconds, filmed over a couple of days, then reduced down to about 5min 20sec.
I hope you enjoy this video, (it was filmed and uploaded in higher quality, I'm hoping the "watch in high quality" option becomes available with this video) I would love any comments or feedback, cheers!!

High Tea at T2!

Well what could be nicer than High Tea with a close friend! With the kids at school, we decided to bypass the fast food this time. We “high-tailed“ it to T2 cafĂ©. They sell every variety of tea and tisane that you have and haven’t heard of! I chose the delectable strawberries and cream tisane – though I would say I prefer mine chilled, it was surprisingly refreshing, yum. And yes the cupcake was as good as it looks!

Happy New Year! 2009...Bondi Beach.

Wishing you a Happy New Year, may your 2009 be filled with peace, kindness and fulfillment.

We popped down to Bondi Beach, (Sydney, Australia) on New Year's Day. Braving the sun as well as the crowds! This is probably one of the most famous beaches in Australia if not the world, attracting many tourists. I took these photos with my phone, so excuse the quality. A panorama of Bondi Beach, 01-01-09.
