Friday 30 January 10:00-17:00 @ Constant studiospace Constant VHack the Knit - overview and troubleshootIn the 80's and 90's electronic domestic knitting machines were popular.

In the course of February, the parts will slowly morph into a machine. OpenKnit is a collaborative effort, some open hardware, snippets of free/libre code here and there and an (...)
