To those that understand relativity: it's a Penrose diagram of a spinning black hole in empty space. The colors are picked as if it's a blackboard - dark green background, "white", "pink" and "orange" chalk. The white is r=infinity, and the two colors are the two horizons.
To those that don't understand relativity: it's nerdy. It's a nerdy diagram of a black hole, done as a scarf.
To those that understand knitting: It was painfully obvious to me that I would not be able to find a pattern for this. So I made it myself. It's actually just a 1k1p ribbing all the way through. 27 stitches across, the inside of the diamonds gets up to 7 stitches across, with the stripes 3 stitches wide. The most difficult part was finding so many thread ends. There are some rows where there need to be 9 separate pieces of yarn in the same row. What I wound up doing is cutting lots of pieces of yarn. So each one of the diamonds and each one of the colored stripes is a separate little piece of yarn (the x's are two). The only parts that are continuous are the green on the edge.
I had lots of left-over yarn. Almost a skein of each color (I'd gotten an extra skein of each color in case I ran out. Wound up being a good idea). So I thought I'd crochet a blankie... at 4 feet wide, I'm about 3 feet into it. I'll post it when I finish. For now, it's keeping my legs warm and my hands occupied... in class. ;)
