I’ve made two new tops since the last post, from the yarn that was meant for the Denali Sweater (see here).
Now I really am done with We Are Knitters patterns. I was going on vacation and wanted something to do while watching TV with my parents. I also wanted to give knitting sleeves a try. So I picked out the Denali sweater.
The next thing I knit was the Slushies Top from We Are Knitters (WAK). They claim this one is advanced, presumably because there’s actual shaping around the neck and shoulders. But I also thought this was fairly easy, except for the things they left unspecified in the pattern 😡 and, honestly, those parts were fairly straightforward, too, once I found decent instructions online.
I’ve recently gotten back into knitting. In particular, I’m trying my hand(s) at knitting clothes. So far I’ve produced 3 tops that I’m excited to keep wearing (one of which I’m planning a minor adjustment to) and a baby sweater from the end of two skeins of yarn.
I made paper last weekend! This is a project I did several times as a kid but wanted to try again now. I’m pretty excited about the results and hoping to find a way to hang one of the sheets of paper.
I am honored that two pieces of my recent work were accepted to the 2017 PoCSci Conference and to have received Best Paper in the standard track and Best VC Pitch in the new-this-year Tech Transfer Track!

We took this wild trip around the world to Perth with a layover in Dubai (and back). The photos in this post are mostly maps. Better pictures of all the fun can be found on my Instagram.
