Here are the photos I took while working the second strand of the cable of the #octCAL project. I honestly don't know if it will help but at least it'll give you a visual of what it looks like when it's right.

I've gotten permission to make and sell these. I haven't made any of them yet, I'm waiting on supplies to arrive. The first one is already spoken for but I'm sure I'll be making more, especially if I see interest in it :)

life can be better down where it's wetter

Found via +Tim O'Reilly...

"Like what I'm seeing of +OpenROV Seems like a very interesting project - DIY platform for undersea exploration.  The maker movement at its best."

How Do You Pour Your Tea?
obviously with gravity as the main ingredient

Discovered this video through local Bay Area company Fox and Moon Tea. When handmaking tea, this certainly beats a matcha whisk.

Knit Night - Come Knit With +Yarn Mountain

This is a great example of how communities are forming and bonding on Google+. If you'd like to participate in this knitting Hangout On Air you should add +Yarn Mountain to your circles and they'll invite you in this evening (and to their future events). Bring your knitting projects and tune in as they perform demos!
Tonight is our Open Knit Night ON AIR Hangout! The shop will be open until 8pm, and we'll be online from 7-8pm EST, hanging out and talking about our New Zealand collection of exotic fibers. We're offering 25% off of your entire purchase(in stock items only)  for all participants through midnight tonight.  The discount code is shared with our Circles on our page, but if you're new, we'll share it again during the #Hangout  tonight.  

The Hangout is "invitation only" to keep out spam, so we are limited to 10 interactive spots.  All others can view the demonstration LIVE, and jump in if a spot opens up.  

See you tonight!
