Crochet Challenge 2015

Join JadeRoseCrochet in participating in the 2015 Crochet Challenge,  Post War Blues, at the Booklyn Army Terminalby mixed media artist Isabelle Garbani..  This community based installation calls attention to the issue of the many innovations that occur as a result of war,  what happens after the conflict is resolved, and how we can work together to heal as a group.

Amigurumi Pi – Free Crochet Pattern

Tomorrow is Pi day – 03/14/15!

This pi day is special, because it only happens once per century – the year fits.  Pi taken to four decimal points is 3.1415.  Remember pi from math class?   To get the circumference of a circle, you multiply this mathematical constant by the radius squared.

I guess this makes me a bit of a geek, as well as a happy hooker.

Alicia Kachmar has made this cute pi pillow pattern available for free!  Just click on the pic.
