Weekend Project - Periodic Table: Hydrogen Coasters

I wanted to crochet element coasters the past few days now. So here's my first attempt, at Hydrogen:

Alternatively, you could flip it upside down and it becomes a Scrabble tile. My lovely husband, being a Scrabble fanatic pointed out the point number is wrong though.

I'll be tweaking the design to fit other elements

RCF2011: Chemistry Tats

We met a lot of chemists at the craft fair and a couple of them showed us their tats (and let us take pictures).


Water + darwin fish:

It got us thinking, do you have any chemistry related tattoos?  Or what would you want your tattoo look like?

I think i'd get a glucose or theobromine..

There wasn't much time for us to peruse the other wares, but here's our loot.

2011 Renegade Craft Fair in Chicago, Sept 10-11

We had the wonderful opportunity to show at the Renegade Craft Fair in Chicago this past weekend. There were over 300 vendors and it seemed like there were more booths and people than all the previous years!

It took a lot of planning and crocheting, but we finally made it to the Fair.  There's almost no end to the booths:

We were at booth #187, geeking it up with some crocheted molecules and science art:

We had lots of new items, like postcards, T-shirts and keychains. The fair favorites were the T-shirts and postcards of our Science Kitty:

 Ideal Gas Law dog T-shirt, PV = nRT:

Our most popular molecule sale was, of course, Ice:

No Prim and Plush craft fair would be complete without Caffeine being the centerpiece:

And finally, he sun setting over Wicker Park in Chicago:

We had a blast selling our crafts in our home town of Chicago.   We'll have more follow-ups on the interesting things we bought and saw at the Fair!  Thank You Chicago!
