Back to the knitting machines!

I’ve been checking out mods to knitting machines online lately and going to take an Arduino class this week to see if I can perhaps one-day mod my own… found some interesting projects (where have I been??)

A student duo made a rocking chair powered knitting machine

And this one replaces the punch card (one of the things I’d like to do)

So gratifying to see people coming up with ways to bring these older machines into the new age!
