Crochet Mathematics: Chaos

(c) Wikipedia
This is probably a pretty cool design you've seen on a t-shirt, perhaps while perusing thinkgeek.com (one of my favorite geek-gear websites). But what is it? Whelp, I'm here to tell you AND show you how it can be represented through crochet.

In 1963, Edward Lorenz, a meteorologist, introduced the Lorenz attractor which was a form derived from the simplified equations of convection rolls arising in the equations of the atmosphere.

And you say... huh?

Me too - and this is where the research begins.

Owl Mitts Pattern Review

The blog has been relatively quiet the last week or so simply due to time and other responsibilities - but that has not stopped me from crocheting. Most of my readers know I crochet from my heart (or my own patterns *laughs*) but occassionally I'll find a pattern that I simply must make.

The pattern I am reviewing today is called "Owl Mitts" and was published on Ravelry by Erika Ward.

1 Skein Pet Bed [Pattern]

My little orange kitty had need of a pet bed. We moved into a larger house this last summer and now she likes to sleep in various rooms, depending on where the family is. There are a couple rooms that just left her with few options. While making her quite a comfortable mat, I thought to myself "why stop with making beds for my lil orange kitty when there are hundreds of shelter animals in need of homes and warm places to sleep."

I decided that I would not "skimp" on a pet bed for a shelter animal. This pattern has a few different options and are noted within the pattern itself.
