Knit a Pair of Photographer Mittens that Have a Shutter Finger Hole

Want a pair of mittens that don’t interfere with your love for photography? If you know how to knit, you can make your own! Norwegian knitter Bea created a nifty pair of mittens that have a hole your index finger can poke through when your camera shutter summons it. You can find the free pattern on her site if you’d like to make your own.

Old-School Knitting Machine Hacked to Knit Photos Onto Garments

Artist-hackers Becky Stern and Limor Fried took an old Brother KH-930e knitting machine from the 1980s and turned it into a device that can “print” photos onto garments. Andrew Salomone showed off the machine at World Maker Faire New York 2011, along with a ski mask that has his face printed on it.

Stop Motion Animation with Knitting

Knitting is getting quite a bit of coverage on PetaPixel this week. Just a couple days ago we featured the surreal knitting photographs of Daniela Edburg. The above is an creative commercial for natural gas by TBWA Brussels and directed by Olivier Babinet. What’s amazing is that all the stop-motion animation you see is done using wool and a team of super dedicated knitters. They’ve also released a behind the scenes video showing how the commercial was made.

I love this kind of effort because it shows you how much you can do with good ol’ fashioned hard work and perseverance.


Update: Rather than “knitting”, the process is probably better described as “un-knitting”.
