Bleached coral

Bleached coral indicate a stressed environment.  When the symbiotic algae that normally provide color to the coral are expelled, the coral themselves appear bleached.

Hyperbolic growth

These hyperbolic planes (one increase in every 5 stitches) are each made with equal parts of orange and blue yarn.  The first yarn created 22 rows, but the border yarn only lasted for 4 rows.  What an amazing illustration of the rate of hyperbolic growth!
