Wow, the Sierpinski shawl got much more of a response than I was expecting. Now I’m half afraid to post any more knitting stuff because it seems unlikely that it will be nearly that popular.

I’ve started making a pineapple bag. I want mine to be smaller than the example in the pattern, so I’ve cast on enough stitches for 12 pattern repeats instead of 20. I’m not sure if the beads are visible in the picture.

Double-pointed needles make me crazy, it turns out. Time to get a circular needle in a really skinny size.

Here is the Sierpinski shawl on an actual human. Also, I should point out that there’s a pattern available: The Sierpinski Gasket Shawl on Ravelry. I’m not sure if it’s exactly the same as mine, because mine was knitted according to a system I worked out myself (and which I have not been organized enough to write down as an actual pattern), but the one on Ravelry looks very similar.

Knitting + fractal. It seems like it should be an April Fools joke, but it’s not.

Sierpinski Gasket shawl, knitted in Zitron Filisilk. About 60” across the top edge. Somewhat wrinkled from being folded and then sitting around for a while.

Found this amazing picture while looking for something else. It’s a doily, knitted using what appears to be impossibly thin thread. It reminds me of the patterns around a minibrot: the distortions of the hexagonal mesh, the pair of symmetrical leaf forms, the increasing degrees of radial symmetry around the center.

Trigger Warning: Knitting

Hello, internet. It seems like I haven’t posted anything in weeks and months. This is because I’ve been ignoring the computer and knitting, an activity which I would describe as massively out of character. I haven’t wanted to say anything about it, because there’s almost nothing I hate more than trying to learn a new skill in public. And I’m awfully ambivalent about knitting itself, with its connotations of both granny and hipster.

Oh man, I had a nightmare once that looked just like this. Seeing the picture completely spooked me for a second.

if you drink your coffee black then you’re probably into some real fucked up shit 

*looks deeply into coffee cup*

*looks at everyone in the room, maintaining eye contact for far longer than comfortable.*

It’s funny, I’ve been drinking my coffee black for something like twenty years now (gosh, has it been so long…?) but my darkest secret is that I’m just about the squarest and least-way-out-there person it’s possible to imagine.

Of course, this being the internet, you have absolutely no way of knowing if I’m telling the truth about myself, my coffee-drinking habits, or anything else.
