So this time without cw so that the hash tag #yarnuary works.
These are house shoes with leather soles. The technique is #nålebinding the stitch is Finnish stitch.
1400km by train in two days. No delays. Got plenty of sleep. Learned for my exam. Did some needlebinding. Read Paleotronic cover to cover. Arrived fit to party. Partied. Repeated on way back.
Gott love train travel when it goes as planned.
There's a new demo of @funkwhale now available, have a look here (you don't need to log in for the demo):
Funkwhale is a decentralised open source alternative to Grooveshark or Soundcloud. If you like the demo version, you can join a real instance at:
A classic story that bears reposting:
"We're having a problem sending email out of the department."
"What's the problem?" I asked.
"We can't send mail more than 500 miles," the chairman explained.
I choked on my latte. "Come again?"
"We can't send mail farther than 500 miles from here," he repeated. "A little bit more, actually. Call it 520 miles. But no farther."

So to reduce plastic usage I've been trying reusable beeswax cloth instead of cling film. Works great.
One big plus apart from the environmental factor is that you don't get that soggy sandwich condensation effect that sometimes happens with plastic containers or cling film.

The last Ben Heck Show. I'm sorry to see it go. Yes, it was commercial, but it also showcased a lot of neat and accessible ideas. There were many homages to 8-bit tech that is close to my heart. I'll probably binge my ten favourite episodes.
"Going on a march doesn't need to have a direct outcome. It makes people feel better, feel connected and feel together. It can be an end. It doesn't have to be a means." Sage wisdom from @IanDunt@twitter.com on the latest @RemainiacsCast@twitter.com. (Bit paraphrased because I don't want to rewind!)
Anyone going to HOPE and still need a room? I've got an extra spot still.
The weather here in Münster continues to be beautiful.
I am lucky to have just a 6 Km bicycle ride, largely through woodland and parkland, to get to work.
The mornings ride improves my mood -especially on early shift- a great deal.
So if you usually commute by car and your bike is gathering dust in the shed or cellar, why not dust it off, oil it up and enjoy the morning from your bicycle seat.

This evening I planted one of my raised beds. It's little late in the year but I'm hoping to get a few lettuce, radishes and carrots out in the Autumn. The tomatoes are also coming along nicely (though they are the project of my better half).
It's nice getting earth beneath your nails.
