Four Years of Making

Four Years of Making

Dear beloved MAKE readers,

Today is my last day as Senior Video Producer for MAKE. The past four years have been, undoubtedly, the best times of my life so far. I’m immensely thankful to have been a part of such a dedicated and talented team — they’re like family to me. While you won’t be seeing me on the blog, Make: Live, or CRAFT videos any longer, this isn’t so much “goodbye” as “see you around.” I’ll always be a proud member of the maker community.

After a little time off, I’ll be taking a position at Adafruit Industries, heading up the wearable electronics group, and of course, you know I can’t resist making videos. I’m delighted to dig into more ambitious projects than ever before, so I hope you’ll check them out.

I thought I’d share some of my “greatest hits” videos from over the years, so here goes (after the jump)…

My first videos ever for MAKE/CRAFT, the Skeleton Cardigan. Part one shows you how to Photoshop an image into a knitting pattern, and part two shows how to knit it up. This sweater was lost in my luggage coming back from Maker Faire Bay Area 2008, so the video’s all I’ve got to remember it by.
