Meet Mort! Installed our 36-ft knit albino Burmese Python yarnbomb at @Gensler_Design's SF HQ yesterday. Read his full story on the blog, with plenty of nerdy pics of me and @thedappertoad.

xtsayre : @giantpompom @ddaltonhob @amleenj Coincidentally, snakes were the subject of my first experiments in #MachineKnitting last weekend. @knitsforlife doing some very cool things!
naomirag : @knitsforlife I love it! Is it covering piping that was already there?
knitsforlife : @annftilley awesome! It's like 50% seaming which sucks but is worth it. Check out my project notes on Ravelry and look for the project with the knit inner ears for directions.
knitsforlife : @naomirag it's pipe insulation wrapped with white fleece fabric. Jill was just holding it.
diane1284 : Achhhhkk love it

So @thedappertoad just spent 2 hours entering this chart in the Brother KH-270 #knittingmachine based on an image of an albino Burmese Python skin she posterized and pixelated in Photoshop. This is the most advanced way to enter a chart on this vintage knitting machine, and it's the only electronic element of the process. Still pretty rudimentary, which is why we are working on a hack with an Arduino to import charts directly. And... After all this the swatch didn't look good since we're trying to cheat by knitting intarsia with stranded colorwork, but this chart is beyond the limits of that cheat. What an afternoon!

tanteblaa1929 : I feel you, ladies! I manually entered a chart into my machine once, it was a about 300 rows. The only display was 24 Led lights in a row, and the advanced technology was β¬…οΈβž‘οΈ arrow button and fill / no fill buttons. Hehe! That being said, I wish I had your jobs! I wanna work like you do so bad. Ever looking for apprentices?
knitsforlife : Wee yow @tanteblaa1929! That's incredibly difficult. We are lucky to have patrons supporting us until we are profitable. So no employees for a while but we do love it when people come play! Do you ever visit San Francisco?

Remember the truck we yarnbombed for @oldnavy? We also turned it into keepsakes for their design team. @thedappertoad has the magic touch when it comes to sewing and @yarnspirations_xo One Pound yarn washes up super soft and plush! All told we made 8 stockings, 8 pillows, a lined blanket and zipper pouch. Not too shabby!

I'm still having a million feelings about #CharlieHebdo, but my sadness over terrorism everywhere and my solidarity with provocative art haven't dissipated. I believe art should be as diverse as people, including the inspiring and the offensive. I don't know how fundamentalists of all kinds will manage to live together with liberals in a globalized society. I believe most people are good. I believe yarnbombing matters, and in my studio that's one thing I can not just think but also do.

#CrochetACrocus for @NaomiRAG's next #yarnbomb: a field of crocus flowers on an East Harlem fence. She'll surround her own enormous crocus masterpiece with all our hand-sized contributions. See my next post for the #crochet pattern. Contact Naomi for the mailing address. Deadline is Feb 9. I'm so excited to see this beautiful project come to life!

knitsforlife : Oh god don't look too closely @sourpussknits. It is totally hacked and I made a huge mistake on the decreases which I gave up on after half an hour. Plus I forgot to set the rib to a higher tension so it looks like a beret. The list goes on!! At least I confessed it to @hanasaurusrex! And the back... Ugh my machine makes annoying loops and on and on. We just like to play with colorwork designs as you know. I don't have the patience for careful machine knitting like you!
sourpussknits : Whatever dude, it looks awesome! I meant it like "how'd she do it!" I'm good at sticking with what I know, new things are 😱. Is it intarsia, never tried that before.
knitsforlife : Exposé @sourpussknits! 😜 I google imaged for old English lettering charts, charted it on knitting graph paper, then hand-manipulated the stitches for each row. Since it was too wide for a punchcard. Had to triple check each row but otherwise not too bad. I can send you the alphabet if ya like.
hanasaurusrex : @knitsforlife I'm gonna love it and all it's perfectness ;D

@thedappertoad and I are happy to finally show you our finished bumper car #yarnbomb at @oldnavy's NY flagship store on 34 St. We used about 1/4 as much yarn as on the truck ("only" 3 miles of @yarnspirations_xo One Pound yarn), but they took just as long to install. I particularly love the exposed chrome fins and the pom poms topping the poles. them out til January!

Yippee! Now until January you can see our most ambitious #yarnbomb to date, a 1950 Chevy truck in @oldnavy's #sanfrancisco Flagship store on Market & 4th. We took the Brother KH-270 computerized bulky knitting machine off our wish list for the project and @thedappertoad did all the construction while I lounged on my honeymoon, lol. All those seams are hand-stitched mattress and Kitchener stitches, baby. It's attached with hook Velcro tape and a little hot glue. Stats: 35 h design, 45 h construction, 60 h installation, 250 ft Velcro, 30 skeins of Caron One Pound yarn. Next stop, New York's 34th Street Flagship.

We bought a new knitting machine today! It uses bulky yarns and you can program the whole needle bed so hello worsted weight yarn and goodbye punch cards. We tested the waters with snowflakes and a flying pig, of course.
tanteblaa1929 : I want a chunky machine too!
mrsmelissajefferies : Hey where did ubuy that. I have one but it jams
knittygrittyhomestead : I have three knitting machines and have yet to try them...all given to me as I'm the local knitter. Time to haul them out??
knitsforlife : We found one for $1200 but then scored with one for $700 plus $150 for the PPD and cartridge, @sourpussknits.
knitsforlife : @seireffejsrm we go to local meetups and guilds. Google around for some in your area. Couldn't have done it without them!
knitsforlife : @knittygrittyhomestead πŸ‘†
sourpussknits : That IS a good deal!! Major score πŸŒŸπŸ™ŒπŸŒŸ
knitsforlife : πŸ™Œ @sourpussknits
