A knitting machine from scratch

Posted by Fairy Yarnmother on April 23, 2011

This is great.  Look at the videos from correx37.  She’s made her own knitting machine from printer parts and an ancient computer. 

here’s her first video on a knitting gadget, she set up latch hooks in a row and found a way to knit by using the latch hooks.  

here’s the 2nd video, where she’s automated her gadget.

the 3rd video.  Now she’s got the printer motor moving the needles forward and back the way a knitting machine would. 

and here’s her final machine.  it’s completely automatic and will go until it runs out of yarn.  She named it MK2.  You can see the progress she’s made in her designs.   I’m sure her next machine innovation will have it make coffee.  :)
