About Me


By day I am a scientist and I study bacteria in the laboratory of KC Huang. In particular, I am investigating how bacteria live, grow, and communicate in diverse communities called biofilms. I am constantly amazed by all aspects of microbiology and all the organisms that live in and around us! 

I spend a lot of my spare time crafting. If you could not tell by the overarching theme of this blog, I love everything crafty, especially knitting and crocheting! I began designing knitting patterns in 2012 and you can find my patterns on Ravelry (Heidi Arjes designs) or Craftsy (Craftimism). Through this blog, you will not only get to know a little more about me, but also my family and friends, as I most enjoy making projects for those special people in my life!

Happy Crafting!

  1. I am making hats for the 4/22 March. On the downloaded patterns, above the charts where the (love) SCIENCE pattern is, it says 41 sts to repeat. Should be 42. Love your designs!

  2. Hi Heidi! The DNA double helix hat is the one for me! Which color yarn did you use for your designs? I don't see where it's listed anywhere so I thought I'd ask. Thanks so much for the patterns.

    1. I used Deborah Norville everyday soft yarn in peacock for most of the march for science hats. It is available online from Joann.com, unfortunately not in stores. I like that it is anti-pilling and very soft for an acrylic. :)
