1) I finished Anathem by Neal Stephenson. I highly recommend it. He mentions evolutes, and icosahedrons (favorite toys from college) and keeps talking about people discussing math and philosophy in cloisters. I want to live in that book.
2) I made a new pattern. It just needs a little last bit of polish and some glamour shots before getting out into the world, but the testers have blessed it and I’m wearing mine right now. Here’s some pictures to tease you before the real thing gets out there.
And my favorite bit about those two things? I named the pattern Cloister before I even started the book. I love coincidences like that.
