Again, I've fallen off the face of the earth, it seems

Pi necklace

But I'm still here.

Life has conspired to keep things busy around here, but I guess if the purpose of this blog is to help me remember some crafting details, I better get to documenting before everything flies out of my head.

And why might it fly out of my head? Pregnancy brain. I'm expecting a little boy at the end of October, and while I may not have left my keys hanging in the door yet, I wouldn't put it past myself.

So you might think that I've been concealing my crafty output because it's been all-baby-stuff-all-the-time. Not so much. As a matter of fact, news of the baby has really caused me to want to get on the ball on all kinds of older unfinished projects (so that it can become mostly-baby-stuff-most-of-the-time at some point in the future). So that's mostly what I have to show for myself. I'm hoping to make a post every day or two for the next week or so until I get caught up(-ish).

And that necklace? I made it in high school in lieu of studying for a math test. Each color bead represents a different number, and they're arranged to represents the first 100? 200? digits of pi. While making the necklace (several times--my knots weren't strong enough) I happened to memorize the first 30 or 35 digits. It was an accident! But people generally don't believe me when I tell them that.


  1. CONGRATULATIONS!!!! So exciting!

  2. I had no idea!!! Congratulations, Kathy!

    Also - I remember that necklace! It was so Kathy :) I'm throwing the flag on "it was an accident." You LOVED pi!

  3. lol, i love the necklace THAT'S how you memorized pi =P

  4. No, it totally was an accident! Well, the first part was. Then I kept getting dared/challenged to memorize 5 more digits. So I did. Then someone else told me I needed to have 50 digits. So I did. So I'm not saying I'm not partially to blame, but it started because I kept messing up the necklace. I promise!
