I just finished knitting a hat. This is the first knitting job where I didn't follow a pattern but made it completely on the fly.

printable stitchmarks for knitting

I needed a stitchmark for knitting my arigurumi and as a makerbot-operator I don't go and buy small plastick stuff - I print it :-)

And so I designed a stitchmark myself. Here is the openscad or the stl version, if you want to print one yourself

Ninja vs Pirate - The Movie

Nikolaus Gradwohl2011-06-28T05:53:20+00:00

For my Day28 project I made a stopmotion animation using my ninja from Day4 and my Pirate from Day 7. I spent countless hours animating the figures, removing the needles from the images and making the soundtrack - but I really love the result.

the sword- and fistfighting sounds are created by "Sharp" and downloaded from

the ambient sounds are created by "Axeman" and downloaded from

The images where shot using a Nikon D40x and a tripod, the image processing was done in gimp and the sountrack was edited using ardour.

special thanks to 30DaysOfCreativity for putting "Ninja VS Pirate" on the inspiration calendar :-)
