by Elisabeth Parker For most of my life, my standard over-layer has been the classic, grungy, waffle-knit long-sleeve t-shirt. In my attempts to recreate this garment in a handknit, I’ve met, tried and rejected a veritable ton of “waffle” stitch patterns, usually created using triangles of knit and purl stitches arranged artfully, or some combination of ribbing and garter stitch. Generally, these stitches look great and waffle-y, especially on small needles, but I was unable to find the hand-knitting equivalent to my favorite mass-produced stitch pattern on a larger scale!

You will have to get used to holding both yarns at once. Throughout, you carry both colors forward or back between the needles before each stitch, though you are only knitting or purling with one color at a time. editorial spring 06

How to Add a Snooze Button to Gmail, No Extensions Required Whether you're a practitioner of inbox zero or not, we all occasionally receive emails we're not ready to act on just yet—emails we'd rather defer to tomorrow, or even next week. Here's how to create a smart snooze button in Gmail, no extensions required, using Google's new-ish Apps Script tool. Note: Google's Corey Goldfeder posted this method on the Google Apps Developer blog and in the video above.

Just because you can usually get a similar effect in Photoshop doesn’t mean the end result will be as good as using Illustrator (depending on the project). If you are like me (and I will bet most of you are) you will go ahead and use PS because you know it much better even though the final project will not be as good or functional as it could be.
