Transit of Venus Hat

I'm playing Nerd Wars again on Ravelry. The Scientific Challenge this round is to make something inspired by the motions of the planets. I'm designing this hat using mosaic colorwork.

Sun motif

The main motif is the sun, with rays coming out the top, bottom, and sides. The white dot in the middle represents Venus transiting across the sun.

I'm knitting this out of Lion Brand Fishermen's wool in the natural and nature's brown colors. I'm really liking the way this is coming out and will definitely write the pattern up for sale.

I still haven't figured out what my Discworld tie-in will be for the Nerd Wars challenge, but I'm sure my teammates will help me come up with something.
