The miracle of blocking
The only reason the lace glove fit around my hand was due to some heavy blocking. I thought I was going to have to redo it with a bigger hook!
Telephonic sheep
Cool phones, looking disturbingly like sheep. I bet you can use them to confuse city kids that have never seen one in real life.
Knitting app for iPhone users
Free app to help you keep track of repeats and progress.
Where no flag has gone before
Contractor report on the design and implementation of bringing a flag to the Moon.
Artificially created biological brain controls a robot
I, for one, bow to our new cyborg overlords. Scientists from Reading university have managed to control a robot (a Frankenbot) using organic tissue, which is quite cool. They are using it in their research to study how memories are stored. No word on their world domination plans.
Sir Nils Olav, penguin
In a really cute move, the King of Norway has knighted the penguin, mascot of the Royal Guards.
Hubble archives
This is the latest image released from the Hubble, to celebrate its 100,000th orbit of the Earth. The site is full of amazing images and breathtaking colours.
