I found this video and thought it might be of interest to some of you. It's all about weaving touch-sensitive conductive yarns into fabrics. Google and Levi Jeans have really taken it a lot further than just making gloves able to connect with touch screens. Enjoy.
Today I got an email regarding Etsy filing a registration statement for an IPO. I know some of you sell things using Etsy so here is the link that announces the registration.
I just finished this pair of socks for my mother. I like the way they turned out using the Evil Genius method again. The yarn is a superwash Merino/nylon blend that softens up quite nicely when washed and blocked. Mom's toes have a mind of their own and didn't grow especially straight, with two on each foot crossing over another.
Hi guys. I finished the socks that are made using the Evil Genius Sock method found at http://www.yarmando.com/. Thanks again, Ken in Maine for sharing that site with me.
I send you all warm wishes for a wonderful holiday season. I am so lucky to have so many of you in my life.
My son showed me a pair of gloves he got today and conductive yarn was
used in the fingers so the wearer can use a cell phone without taking off the
gloves. I am going to do some research on this and write an article about it.
I was wondering if any of you guys have ever used conductive yarns? If so,
what did you make?
Since June I have been struggling to find a pattern or formula to make what I consider a sock that fits and will nicely adjust to needle size and yarn thicknesses. Thanks Ken in Main for all your help and the suggestion to use Yarmando's Evil Sock Genius lessons. He just makes a sock make sense for me.
I head off to my journey driving from Chicago to my new home in central Florida. I am staying with one of our knitting buddies in Atlanta, Lou (AKA olddancer on Ravely) and I am really looking forward to that. The wine is in the car and so is my knitting stuff. It's funny. With all the items that I handled, and I handled all of them, it brought back so many memories.
ILHIKER is now known as CLABBERS.
I decided to change my member ID to CLABBERS to celebrate starting a new
life in Florida. I picked CLABBERS because I am an avid Scrabble player and
Clabbers is type of Scrabble. If you are interested in it, you can find out

My photo is also changed as well.
