So last night, after a lovely warm weekend away from my computer, I’m sitting on my couch, surfing the web, wondering what this morning’s blog post might be. And suddenly I have an email from Meg about Jerome Sevilla, aka Gridjunky, who buys mass-market sweaters second-hand, unravels them, and knits them into mathematically fascinating hats. I not only love the hats, I love the way he thinks and writes about them. Here’s hoping I can get him to do Our Tools, Ourselves. In the meantime, feast your eyes on his blog and Flickr.
Speaking of magnificent hats, this week’s ICYMI post is FO Sightings: Kent Turman’s impeccable headwear.
His maths might make my head hurt, but his hats are fabulous!
Yeah, Gridjunky’s awesome. :-)
I’m totally a huge fan of this guy!! Amazing projects!!
Oh, man! How great is this guy, and how fantastic are his hats???? YES- I hope he does the Our Tools, Ourselves for you! Thanks for introducing him to us. (Me, anyway!)
I’m obsessed with his stuff. SO smart and interesting! I want him to start writing patterns.
Bristol, have you suggested it to him?
Love love love the geeks and his hats are so good! Is he on Ravelry? Yes please may we have more of this guy!
I consider myself a lapsed mathematician. Jerome’s patterns make me want to break out the textbooks (yikes!!) thanks for sharing!
Holy crap! My fave blog – he’s amazing! thank you *so* for sharing…
Whoa… thank you, Dudes! I’m glad people are noticing the relevance of the math because well… it’s pretty important, isn’t it?
Maybe you could come to my high school and tell the students that!!! :)
Great post! Gridjunky is a craft hero!
he’s one of my favorites as well!
(i wish he would sell his patterns….the math* makes my head hurt!) ;)
* i’m wondering if he uses graph paper?
The patterning of GridJunky’s hats make me NUTS!! So beautiful! Add to that whole recycling thing. Oh, ya, I’m a Fan.
