A couple of interesting knitting-related doo-dads on Kickstarter:
A next-generation knitting machine, describing itself as a 3-D printer. It’s closer to a commercial knitting machine than one of the semi-manual domestic machines, and offers interesting possibilities for small-scale production, and faster results for the home-maker.
And then there’s TINK, the Fiber Artist’s Wearable Notions Bracelet. I am rather intrigued by this knitting toolbelt-like contraption, and will be following the project with interest.
Fascinating story about the reconstruction of a textile from a fragment found at an archaeological dig in Iceland.
Hmmmmm… Love the idea – hoping that the hourly rate is fair! New fashion line Wooln is employing retirees to make accessories for sale.
Some facts about Knitting, from the Boffins of QI. I will never tire of reading about knitting as code – and I love the idea of the Belgian resistance knitters recording train movements in their work.
