    This is a blanket I made for my friend’s baby, Liam.  

    I cannot go 24 hrs without spending at least an hour on crochet so….

    Expect more of these.

    #crochet  #finished projects 



    My second crack at the Art Assignment is a piece of crochet for the recent assignment #11: Under the Influence.

    I’m not much of a painter so I decided (after finally finding my crochet hooks having moved house earlier this month) to take my inspiration from the colours used as well as the image itself rather than from the materials used.

    The painting is San Giorgio Maggiore by Claude Monet, and it’s quite possibly my favorite piece of art at the Welsh National Museum in Cardiff so upon receiving the new assignment I decided to put some odds and ends of yarn I already had (hence the introduction of a bit more green than Monet used) together and made something small that in some small way resembles the original.

    It was really nice to just sit and crochet again as I haven’t done so in a while, the addition of chocolate, friends and Buffy the Vampire Slayer to keep me company also made the process that bit more enjoyable too.

    The Art Assignment community is so cool. Love browsing the tag.

    The whole SciShow office is so freaking stoked about this it’s adorable. To be clear, I also have not been this excited about a movie (that wasn’t based on my brother’s book) since Deathly Hallows.

    Should I Teach My Kid To Code? (via fastcompany)

    In all honesty, teaching kids to code is on par with teaching them to read and write.  They don’t need to be professional coders when they grow up… just code literate.
