What if one way to test your hacked knitting machine and get in touch with it would be to make a self-portrait ?
Though I was not very proud of myself not having another topic to knit at this very moment, it went pretty well and "we" (machine+me) were introduced to each other... If I may express it as such!
Other machine, other hack,
Here using the one from Maurin Donneaud in order to knit some meters of a sound recording taken on site, around social life of Etextile Summercamp. (i.e In the final pattern we can see and recall a birthday celebration)
