aquaeri: a piece of hyperbolic crochet (hyperbolic crochet)

Welcome to [community profile] intertwined!

I've been combining mathematics and yarn and fibre crafts for as long as I've been doing either, pretty much. They seem like a very natural match to me, and I always find it a bit strange when people treat them as incompatible. I guess mathematics is seen in our culture as very male, and most people think of physics and engineering as the major "users" of mathematics, and these two university disciplines have the highest ratio of male to female students. Conversely, knitting, crochet, lace-making, sewing, quiltmaking and so forth are "feminine" and often treated as trivial and insignificant crafts that couldn't possibly be intellectually challenging. I'd like to find some kindred spirits, and share the joy of mathematical fibre crafts.

Feel free to tell a bit about yourself in comments.
