I finally bought a straight knitting loom, and this afternoon I made a somewhat Christmassy scarf!

The tassels look like I made them with my eyes closed, but it’s the first time I’ve ever made any.

Just finished this super chunky beast of a hat; I’m madly in love with super chunky wool.

Weaving Neuroscience and Art Together

What’s that? Wooden brains aren’t enough for you? Ok, since you can’t get enough, here’s some amazing knitted brain art. These are real fMRI scans and anatomical studies translated into yarn and woven into rugs!

There’s actually a whole mini-museum for this stuff, appropriately titled “The Museum of Scientifically Accurate Brain Art”. Best “weaving” of science and art since these math-inspired creations of New Mexico artist Donna Loraine Contractor.

Even more: Here’s some yarn playing tricks on your brain, via “Illusion Knitting”.

I was just thinking about how bored I was, and as if by magic, someone showed up at my front door with four bin liners full of machine knitting wool.

Bless you, craft fairy.

I’m knitting on five needles!
This feels slightly mad; even madder since I’m hugging a water bottle and having chocolate for breakfast.

I should not have found this as funny as I actually did.
