People are tweeting they should be gray for gray matter. Good idea!
There are also a lot of people suggesting green…. or even multi-colored like an anatomy chart!
When I originally created this Brain Hat, I decided my brains are a pretty pink, but your color choice is totally optional!
This interactive external brain structure view by the National Academy of Sciences Koshland Science Museum is fascinating! Such a fun way to rotate the brain and learn about the different regions of the human brain and their functions!
Too Hot in April for Knitwear?
To answer this, let’s turn to science!
Cotton, Linen, and Bamboo yarns are lightweight, breathable, and comfortable on the skin.
Cotton yarns are composed almost entirely of cellulose, an organic compound that when worn will actively conduct heat away from the body, so in it can be worn in hot weather comfortably!
Linen yarns are the best choice for luxury projects you can still wear in hot weather. Spun using fibers from the flax (linseed) plant, the fibers absorb moisture from the skin and release it into the air, giving it a lovely cool, crisp feeling on even the hottest of days.
Bamboo yarns are sleek, soft, and has a beautiful light drape. It’s made from the pulp of the bamboo plant and ideal for breathable, lightweight, knitted garments. Bamboo can be blended with cotton or silk to make it more durable, or lightweight.
Now that we’ve solved that, keep knitting!!!
