Off-Topic: keeping my MacBook safe from nasty liquids
Mindless orange meets adjustable green things
Finally the Pagewood Farm Chugiak Hand Dyed Sock Yarn which idled in my stash for so long is being knitted into a crescent shawl. I’m about half finished already, so expect a post with pictures for this WIP Wednesday. A lovely thing so far and again mindless TV knitting – I’m very much into it this days I have to admit. Luckily I managed to finish my Adjustable Greenie which is being test knitted at the moment.
Processing for knitting programmers
When planning knitting patterns, I often wish for an easy way to visualize the outcome of a construction method or chart. As I’m working on a crescent shawl pattern at the moment (the Orange Thing), I really wished for a possibility to visualize the effect of different amounts of short row turning points. Why not use Processing? I’ll give it a shot this week and keep you posted here on jriede.com.
A pink feeding cup is keeping my MacBook safe
Listening to Air’s 10.000 Hz legend I felt deeply sorry for the two MacBooks that died because of liquid damage in my household already. Realizing I often drink tea, coffee or other nasty liquids while working on my laptop I came up with a solution: children’s cups! You know, the ones that you can turn upside down and only leak little drops, not spilling all over? It works. I’m drinking red wine out of a feeding cup whenever I’m near my MacBook from now on!
Bonus: it’s pink and has little butterflies printed on it. And yes, I’m serious about it! I’ll replace this picture with a live shot later today. Promise.
Have a nice week!
