@metapianycist It IS one of the real ones! "More gay" is in the (presumably human-generated) training set twice.

@gcupc There would be something rather poetic about that.

This is "Lacy 2047", test-knit by michaela112358, who called row 15 "a bit of a head-melter."
"This AI pattern lacked the rhythm that you tend to get with a normal pattern."

Anyone have a favorite super-simple throw-it-together crockpot recipe? Under some deadlines here but still want tasty leftovers. Any type of food OK.

There's this one self-affirmation talk that's been marketed under 4510 different titles. I decided to train a neural net to generate some more.

@mismatched oh, she is wonderful! What a thoughtful thing to do :)

@brook definitely! There's been some very cool generative weaving. Haven't come across generative knitting yet, but would love to see anything that's out there.

"Man Leaf Cross", a SkyKnit pattern so messed-up that even the heroic debugging of test-knitter isilzha couldn't save it from becoming whatever the heck this is.

This is "Revers Shawl", test-knit by citikas. It was one of SkyKnit's earliest designs, and despite heroic debugging, not exactly a shawl. It was reversible though.

I'm training a neural network to generate new knitting patterns, in partnership with a bunch of folks at Ravelry.
This is "Mystery lace", test-knit by DataSock. ravelry.com/discuss/lazy-stupi

@EpsilonRose Hungarian mushroom soup from the Moosewood cookbook! Great for winter, great with fresh dill. Also dill is great in smoked trout deviled eggs.

Mastodon semi-newbie question: I've been doing an epic thread on Birbsite on a knitting experiment that I think you all would love. I'd like to reproduce it here but don't want to spam everyone's feed. Is there a way to thread without each reply cluttering up the timeline?

@mismatched @cassolotl Thanks! I haven't been reproducing them here because I don't know how to thread without spamming everyone's feed. Or does only the first post, not the replies, show up?

@bram @tcql *waves hi*
*knits a non-Euclidean monstrosity*

@qonnyr although at least this time of year, the tomatoes are doing okay.

@janellecshane 66F this afternoon; now 25F and heading to 18. Low tomorrow 5. No wonder trees hate it here.

As the sun was setting, I was too hot on my porch. It is now 11pm and snowing.

@MicroSFF I hope you are saving all of these now! They're gems.
