Factoring Polynomials. And Some Good Verses.

Does anyone reading this remember factoring polynomials? More specifically trinomials?
I sure do.
Well, I just learned it.
I like it.
Don't judge!
I like math. :) (Especially algebra, with formulas.) Like2x2+5x-3 can be factored to (x+3)(2x-1). Well, I didn’t check it. But I think it’s right. So.
But science is better.
Until they get to like evolution and stuff.
Okay, lets discuss some of my favorite verses:

Philippians 4:8

New International Version (NIV)
 8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.

1 Corinthians 13:4-8

New International Version (NIV)
 4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
 8 Love never fails. ...

I love these verses... :D Feel free to comment on them.
Okay. Now.
I've crocheted five o those hearts, and yeah, I gave em all as valentines (stuffed full of chocolate crunch hearts and a verse about love), and it was awesome. So, yeah.
And yes, this post is even longer than the last. Get over it. 
(You're thinking, "maybe you should." You're correct.)

Okey dokey.

Hearts and Photos

Valentine's Day is around the corner, and so I thought I'd experiment with some heart patterns. This yarn I'm using is, like, a thickness of 7, it's sooo thick. And I love it. <3 Anyway, since you probably won't find a pattern for a heart this thick, I made up my own based on the idea I'd seen before, and here's how it turned out.

 The top hasn't been sewn shut yet (you make two half circles and crochet them together, leaving a gap), as you can see below. I may fill it with candy instead of stuffing when I give it to a special someone (some of my girlfriends, mind you)
I also have a kind of kelly green color, which I will be making half of them with. (I don't know the brand or anything; my grandma just happened to have them. Sorry... Wish I knew too).

Also, I rediscovered a prism I had from a pair of binoculars, and I started experimenting.
My results::

And, meet my photo test subject and cuddly friend, Mortecai!!

And edited :)
(Rest assured, Mortecai is male)
And then I prismated him::
Finally, a picture I took a while back, that I feel like sharing. And a late New Year's wish. 
Because I can.

 Yeah yeah it's sorta long. But that's what happens when the author procrastinates. 
I'll try to post weekly.
No promises.
But I'll try.
