Where are the rest of the instructions for the crocheted beard hat?

 For instance, Rnd 4 doesn't give all of the details. What happened to Rnds 5-10? The beard and mustache rounds aren't complete. Do I have to buy the complete pattern?

Printing Instructable Not working

Tried to print the Crochet Mustache Hat, but every time I click on 'print' link I get this message: 403 Forbidden Request forbidden by administrative rules. It's forbidden to print an instructable? Hmmm BTW the HP wireless advert that pops up when I click on the print link is really annoying. thanks, jamowa

Sugru Build Night at MakeICT in Kansas

MakeICT participated in their first Instructables Build Night in July by making stuff with Sugru!  It turned out to be a lot of fun.  A couple people showed up with ideas.  A couple more people showed up without ideas, but they were quickly inspired by suggestions.  One guy who was at our space for the first time had used Sugru before and was willing to share best practices.  Sugru seems like a useful tool to keep around the makerspace, so thanks to Instructables for introducing it to us! Here are some of the Sugru projects our members worked on: Eyeglass repair by forming new nose pads DIY multimeter tweezer probes A universal tripod mount that works with any phone or tablet A mustache - for those times when you need to quickly disguise yourself We also had a member repairing a table-top gaming piece by forming a new base out of Sugru.  Another member used Sugru and recycled pieces of corrugated plastic (yard signs) to prototype a homeless shelter. Thanks to the Instructables team for the help in organizing these build nights! We look forward to participating in more.

An embarrassment of riches

I was an Artist in Residence at Instructables from September-December 2013, and words cannot express how wonderful it was.  Instructables has recently built out what I can only imagine is the world's greatest general use workshop, at Autodesk's Pier 9 facility.  You are probably aware of this shop if you're reading Artist in Residency posts, but if not, check out the overview here and the machine details here.  I tried to learn and do EVERYTHING in this shop!  I didn't quite succeed in that but I came close enough that I didn't totally finish any of my projects.  I'd planned to make an articulated model of an Escher drawing and an 8 foot tall steel dinosaur statue, both projects I could probably have spent all my time there on.  There was so much awesome to learn about and experiment with, though, that I kept getting distracted by side projects and what-if's that I might not have had opportunity to mess around with later on.  So what I actually ended up making was a series of acrylic jewelry, two small cardboard dinosaur models, MOST of the Escher drawing (I finished it later), some sheet metal walking-leg linkage experiments, half of a new Mustache Ride, part of a sixth Pulse of the City heart, tests of chemically-mediated etching on metal, a pair of 3d printed snowflake ornaments, and the beginnings of a pair of antler pants.  (I will definitely write instructables for the dinosaur and the pants, when they are complete.) I loved it all.  I loved it all so much, and so consistently, that I had to try everything and was hardly able to finish anything.  I cut metal on the waterjet, I printed many 3d things on the 3d printers, I lased like it was going out of style, I lathed like I didn't know what I was doing (Yay Learnings!), I cut and welded and drilled and screwed and printed and ground and sewed and soldered and blasted and glued.  I was like a kid in a candy shop who can't finish the fudge because the lollipops are so tasty and then whoa! peanut brittle! peppermints! gumdrops!  The only part of the shop I didn't use was the test kitchen because, well, I don't really cook. Three months was not enough.  Three years would not be enough.  I feel so fortunate to have been in there doing anything at all for any amount of time, though.  Things I can do now that I couldn't do last summer include: turn wood on a lathe cut metal, stone, cardboard, etc on a waterjet etch metal on a laser printer operate a small vacuum former print multiple materials on an Objet Connex run a jointer and planer operate a Shopbot TIG weld aluminum (to be sure, I'm lousy at this still, but I know How) operate a sand blaster bend steel tubes I'm an introverted anti-social nerd so it has taken me to the bottom of this post to talk about the people.  I absolutely need to say how great the people there are - everyone, no matter their job description, makes things.  Everyone just gets how it is to lose yourself in making some weird possibly useless object that you might have to get rid of when you're done anyway, but you just need to work on it to figure out That One Thing that you didn't quite understand but now you do!  It is a rare and wonderful set of people.  And some of the people, it is explicitly their JOB to teach me about all the equipment and help me with any problems I had with anything at all. If you're reading this you should definitely apply for this program.  You do not want to miss out on working in this shop.
