so many buttons to control

all my respect to machine knitters.weaving is a lot easier, once you warp and thread you're set to go.
in knitting you have to change the setting to cast on, to start knitting, after you transfer the pattern etc.
and there are two carriages to set so  given all the  permutations the possibilities of errors are pretty much endless. it's a real learning curve especially when you're interested in working with processed images.

not only yarn tension, but also the yarn grist has to do with image definition.
 in this sample thicker 12/2 cotton was used.
compared to the one above in 20/2 cotton  there is a difference.
although the 20/2 cotton was knitted in a loose tension i really don't think it would improve much knitting it tighter. the ideal would be sample , but i am running against the clock  with this due in february.
god i dislike working against deadlines!

  1. It's amazing how much the slightest change in one parameter, like grist, changes the total effect. I guess that's part of the fun, as well as the aggravation, of sampling. Carry on!

  2. These are getting really interesting!

  3. Knitting is hard! (That's why I weave...) But I love the effects you are getting in these pieces.

  4. looks like the comment went somewhere. suffice it to say this looks very good


interaction appreciated!
