"Why I hacked a knitting machine"

I've found a brilliant article about a guy who connected an electric knitting machine to a computer in order to make it knit in the same fashion as a printer does. Starting out with printing his own face onto a balaclava, Andrew Salomone has gone on to exhibit and share his knitted works of art in galleries and craft events alike.

Keeping the knitting topics on the lighter side of life, Salomone knitted an image of Crosby wearing one of his famous jumpers, wearing a picture of him wearing a jumper of him wearing a jumper etc. He also knitted an exact replica jumper of the late Amy Winehouse's tattoos in the dream that she only walked around half dressed so often as she wanted to show off her tatts. This jumper could have answered such a problem.

Men and their crafty ways often add a great element of humour when they attack traditionally feminine past times and Andrew Salomone doesn't disappoint. Read the full article and interview with the man himself on the Guardian newspaper website here.

Bad Nana has some stiff competition for next winter.
