Needle Little Help, 2015

collaboration with R. Zacharias

This project is a tool to assist hand knitters to keep track of where they are in a pattern.

When the point of the needles come in contact with each other, the stitch pattern on the computer will advance one stitch. This project is built wiht an Adafruit Flora and communicates with the computer via Bluetooth module. The electronics reside in a portable pouch with magnetic clasps. The stitch pattern was programmed using Processing and works with the microcontroller via Firmata.
