SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAIf you’re still in the act of using punch card-operated knitting machines, you may be interested in Italy-based Serpica Naro’s OKnitMe project, which can create virtual 24-hole punch cards (to be laser cut) over the web using a simple drag-n-drop interface. After you reduce your art to a 2-color image file, their software will “do the magic” and the results are fantastic.

And if you happen to be in Italy this weekend, you can find OKnitMe at Maker Faire Rome demonstrating their project and some of the wares made with it.
