A father knitted his baby’s first year of sleep pattern data into a blanket

Seung Lee has created a tangible, very mushy illustration of his child’s first yr of sleep patterns within the type of a knitted blanket. Lee collected the sleep information by manually logging it with the Child Join app, and used JavaScript and Python to transform the info to visualise the knitting sample. He then constructed a browser-based HTML/Javascript instrument that saved observe of the sew colours and allowed him to reference it wherever he was knitting from. The result’s The Sleep Blanket, a ravishing memento that tells the story of the infant and fogeys’ first yr collectively.

The 42 x 45-inch blanket is comprised of 185,00zero stitches and took Lee greater than three months to finish. With every row representing a single day, the highest row marks the day the infant was born, and the underside row is the infant’s first birthday. Every sew represents six minutes of time spent awake (grey) or asleep (blue), so the blanket is ‘read’ left to proper, with the leftmost sew marking 12:00AM and rightmost sew ending at 11:54PM.

The shift in sleep sample in direction of the top of the blanket will be attributed to a cross-country journey the household took to rejoice the infant’s birthday. Lee says he thought of adjusting the timestamps, however saved them in because it’s a part of the story.

The precision of knitting makes it a terrific medium for information visualization, such because the time when a German commuter marked all of the occasions her practice was delayed in a rail delay scarf. The headscarf was auctioned off on eBay for charity at $8,650, however the Sleep Blanket, which captures the chaos of a child’s first yr settling into a gradual rhythm, is priceless.
