A couple weeks ago, I asked for help on how to piece together a sweater, and now, thanks to all the help, it is complete.
Thanks to LubbyGirl, Megan, and Rainbowjunkiecorner for the tips!
It fits really well, and very warm, so I won’t really get a chance to wear it for a few months. Here’s what it looks like. (Please excuse my appearance, I’d just washed my hair.)
For the past three years, I’ve been doing research with nanopores, which are basically very tiny holes that only a single molecules will fit through at a time. Now that I’ve graduated, I decided to create a nanopore blanket for my advisor. He geeked out when I gave it to him.
For comparison, here’s a picture that we usually use when we present our research:
It’s May! I realize that there weren’t many updates in April. I’ve been a bit busy- defending thesis, getting a job, trying to find a new place to live, etc. But those are all just excuses! I’ll try to be more diligent about updating this blog now, but no guarantees until I find a new place and move, which won’t be until next month.
In other news, tomorrow is the Kentucky Derby, where mint jubilees are drunk and probably the only time fancy hats are worn in America. (I’m looking at you, royal wedding attire.)
Crochet Concupiscence has a wonderful post of 100 unique crochet hats. Here’s a couple:
I’m a fan!
Not a Fan Friday.
I’ve been trying to make this sweater, where I need to sew the pieces together.
More importantly, how do I do this? There are no guidelines on how to do this.
I’ve sewn the shoulder together, but now how do I attached this sleeve? It doesn’t seem to match up very well with the armhole. Um…? Please help.
This is another pattern from Pop Goes Crochet by Vickie Howell. It’s a really good book and the patterns are fairly easy to follow.
The front only has arms, but the back is great!
There was a lot of weaving involved. It’s a nice sweater. :)
There is no need to have coasters for wine glasses, because of the wine glass stem, but doesn’t it make the glass look so pretty?
This pattern can be bought on Ravelry for $3.25, here.
I’m a fan!
Today I defend my thesis. NERVOUS.
In honor of that, here is a free pattern from Lion Brand that I feel is a good representation of me, as a worm.
I’m not sure how many times I can practice a presentation and still be stumbling over parts.
Tomorrow I’m defending my thesis, so practice, practice, practice.
I know everything I can possibly know about Tuning Intermolecular Interactions for Nanopore Force Spectroscopy… hopefully.
I’ll have a post tomorrow though.
I rented The Dark Knight Rises again. Then I found this:
This is from Projects by Carm. Pretty cool, right?
I’m a fan!!
I type in “crochet book” into Google, and find on CraftisCool an actual crocheted book:
Ha ha, it’s really cute. It’d be really good for a birthday card or something. Now, if only I can get better at sewing. You can find the pattern here.
