Math is Fashionable

Dear Nori,

Do you know what a hyperbolic plane is? Me neither. But Noricum made one:
Swatchy and a Hyperbolic Plane
I think I may start a new fashion:
Swatchy and a Hyperbolic Plane
What do you think?

So did she tell you what a hyperbolic plane is? I have no idea. Nice ruff though!

Awesome! I think there was one of those at the Boston Museum of Science when I was little. Of course the knit one beats the pants off of it!

If it was orange, Swatchy could go as the Cowardly Lion on Halloween.

I'm not sure I can explain it without using even more terminology. There's a Wikipedia page here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hyperbolic_geometry

Basically it's a different kind of "space" than the standard Euclidean one that we're used to dealing with.
