Well, it's been a long time since I've shared a blog post - oops! Had several in mind, but it has been a busy year! Regardless, I did make incredible progress on my astrology python program I wrote that takes your astrology chart, and generates a knitting chart from it! It took me awhile to get up the guts to start knitting it too. I finally just picked a yarn I loved (and a second, contrasting color for the second color pattern bits) and cast on! As you can see, it's pretty cool!
My plan is to turn this program into an app, where you can enter your birth info and it will generate your knitting pattern from your chart! You can just knit the pattern, but you can also go deeper and learn a bit about your astrology while you knit, or journal the experience! (Be patient, it will be awhile until this exists!)
The program still needs work; the pattern currently has a ton of errors. I plan to work on it to correct some of them, but part of the experience is trying to fit disparate pieces of yourself into a single item. The experience, is one of alchemical healing, where you have to really integrate all the parts of yourself!
If this is something that interests you, please leave me a comment! I'd love to have some beta-testers ;)
I started knitting in 2005, but have been crafting all my life. Knitting quickly became my obsession and I love to keep the needles in my hands as much as possible.
