The "TK 730" (2011) is a work by the eTextiles Workspace group (Meg Grant, Anja Hertenberger, Ricardo O'Nascimento and Leonie Urff).  The first machine in our series is the TK 730. This machine converts a piece of information, in this case words, into a knitted code that can be worn. It decodes the typed word and re-encodes it into the pattern of the knitwork in a sort of encryption procedure.

We started by hacking a scanner, 2 electric typewriters and a manual knitting machine. By Anja Hertenberger, Meg Grant, Ricardo O'Nascimento and Leonie Urff on a project for the 2011 Summer Session at

Fresh off the knitting machine is this algorithmically morphing scarf with a pattern that changes by one pixel in each repeat. The software was made by Laura Kogler and used by me with the hacked Brother KH930 I currently have. Laura Kogler's pattern generator script is meant for mosaic knitting but I knit it as a standard two color fair isle pattern on my KH930.
