Vulnerability Scanning for Free (as in Puppies)

I’m giving a talk at pyCascades this afternoon and I just wanted to share the slides for folk who like that kind of thing.

The slides below are just images (no alt text or notes — if you want those see the ODP link above). I’m planning to update them with something closer to the talk content after the conference but it might take a while.

Rainbow Heart Mitts (Glitz Mitts)

I live in a part of the Pacific Northwest that doesn’t get *that* cold, so I mostly get by with fingerless gloves. But then I got a dog and when I’m doing the last dog walk of the night it can be a bit nippy, so I switch to full mitts, the same ones I wear I go home to Canada in winter.

This should have worked perfectly except…

  • The warmer mitts don’t fit in my pocket, so I forgot them a lot on night walks.
  • Even when I remembered them, I wound up taking them off repeatedly so I could use my phone while Hatch checked his pee-mail.

So I made new mitts! The pattern is the Glitz Mitts from Knit Happy with Self Striping Yarn. I liked the fact that they’re knit with two different weights of yarn, and I made one of them alpaca for extra warmth. But then instead of closing the thumbs up I put in a few rounds of ribbing and left them open.

Turns out you only really need your thumb to play Pikmin while walking the dog, so they’re perfect! ❤️

Happy hands, happy dog. Hatch is sitting on my chair with the finished mitts on his back.
