stop-motion knitting!

posted in: art, knitting | 1

WOW. mike sent this to me. we were talking about it and we figured that if you had a simple computerized knitting machine, such as the Brother model Mike had back in the usa, then you could make up your animation on the computer. You’d have to turn each frame of the animation into a picture. If you have the right software, you can turn each picture into a knitting pattern, which you can download to the knitting machine computer console. Then the knitting machine sets its needles to make the pattern automatically, so you just need to move the carriage back and forth and back and forth, until you’ve knitted each frame of the animation!
