Uncertainty can be happiness

"Security is a false god," or running around the world as an FSO

I don’t really see a lot of cross-over between my “work” (aka, research) life and my hobbies, but there are always exceptions. Interestingly enough, it’s looking like there’s some cross over with knitting….one of my reference papers (for a proposal) is titled – “Yarn Design for Functional Tissue Engineering”
And several other papers use fiber design and knitting (yes, knitting) as design methods for engineering replacements for certain tissues…. anterior cruciate ligaments (ACL) to be specific.

You can see the knit stitches in this sample… pretty cool!
