Phew what a week! The 2017 Scarf Festival kicked off at the National Wool Museum. This year's theme was Galaxies and one of my entries, "To Infinity and Home Again" received a Highly Commended certificate. Amazing.
Feel the love this week with theoretical biology! Full write up and code available on the Heart of Pluto blog http://tinyurl.com/zovchrm
It's been a busy week here at HeartOfPluto but I've finally managed to clear out all my purple super fine Marino wool. If you love the colour get in on one of these scarves because it's all used up!

About

Hobbyist makers and their makin'

Let's backtrack a few years when John and I were boyfriend and girlfriend. We'd gotten to a stage in our relationship when date nights just weren't enough anymore, we wanted to do something. I mean, something productive. Something that has longevity in the way our professional world of IT doesn't. We wanted to build things. Then we heard about our local hackspace; a community of fellow geeks who tinker with lasers, computer-controlled routers and 3D printers.

Fast forward to today and we've both learned a mountain of new skills, broken many things, built other things and had a blast. Recently we built a CNC router, hacked a knitting machine, dabbled in aquaponics and laser cutting. We've become a husband and wife team of hobbyist makers.

We prefer to focus on challenging ourselves rather than making a profit, but every now and again we make a thing we're proud of. We hope you enjoy this shop and our creative explorations with technology.
