Knitting Around the World

Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University’s Textiles Lab created an algorithm to translate 3D shapes in computer models into instructions for automated V-bed knitting machines – basically turning the knitting machine into a 3D printer. Click to listen/read the story.

Do you know of good resources for flat-bed or V-bed knitting machines? Post in the episode thread if you have tips/stories for me!
