Last day at the Camp

This is a list of observations in no particular order.

The changeable weather made for some uncomfortable moments.

We discovered that it is possible to make Ramen noodles and tea and coffee in our rice cooker.

The burgers at the camp are pretty good.

We ate our dinners at the ICMP village.

I attended several really interesting lectures with a sociological, philosophical, or anthropological angle.

A friend of mine posted some pictures online.

It’s amazing how the quality of my sleep progressively improved over the week.

I am not looking forward to packing up tomorrow. Setting up camp seemed far more appealing than having to leave the place as we found it on Monday.

 

 

Knitting at the Camp

Just a real quick entry to say that I knit a cover for my r0ket and I wrote down what I did for the second cover. So here it is: the pattern for the r0ket cover.

r0ket coverNote: I recommend knitting in the front and back of a stitch to m1.Materials: DK weight yarn; 4,5 mm (US7) needles
Gauge: adjust number of rows and stitches according to your gauge. This pattern is pretty forgiving and hides “mistakes” fairly well.

to take off the cover: lift top over to the back side of your r0ket and slide cover down the back. warning: I am not responsible for any damage caused by yarn getting caught on bits sticking out of the r0ket.

Packing for the Camp

For the past three years I’ve been told again and again: we are going to go to the Chaos Communication Camp 2011; resistance is futile.
So, I’m packing. I’ve bought rubber boots (after all, German Summers are unpredictable). I got a new keyboard for my MacBook (yay!). I’m taking some yarn and knitting needles with me for the Knitting Messages project.
We leave for the camp tomorrow. Updates will come in when I get the chance to write them. I’ll try to upload pictures every day.
