The item

We have a Brother KH-950 Knitting machine!

It can be hacked to knit over usb and to work automatically. This means you can 'print' pixel art in wool form!

Story so far

  • Knitter won on a well-know auction site
  • Got a very strange look from the seller when I collected it "Is it...for you??!"
  • Briefly set up in Derby and ran for two minutes before the smoke escaped
  • Fault identified as a failed capacitor in the PSU. Spare cap will be collected from a well-known high street electronics company on Tuesday 5th July
  • Should be delivered to the Space on Sunday 10th July
  • New caps have been fitted and the machine powers up without smoke

Please could all pledges now be settled by transfer to the HackSpace account, with the unique reference "KNITTING".
