This is a fun project coming from the question: what would you do if you could finely command a knitting machine?
@fbz did a tour of her textile hacking space in Berlin back in summer 2013. She’s very knowledgeable about all this and really loves what she does. The scarves may look a bit - well - algorithmic on first sight, but judging from the versions she showed us back then, they are really nice when actually holding them in your hand. Plus: there’s no nerdier way to cloth yourself.
Adding to that: finally a Kickstarter with a honest description of possible problems.
