    In knitting techniques, skipping needles facilitates achieving porosity to varying degrees. Her can distinctly see the changing degrees of porosity with regular and irregular skipping of nee We get interesting results as each knot is related to other knots, and any distortion in on reflected in the neighnouring knots. If we zoom out a little further, the nature of porosity changes and this can be achieved by creation of holes with the forward and backward movement.

      We get unexpected results when we use all the functions of the machines in a code. These are some speculative three dimensional digital models. We infer from these models that by changing the movement of the machine and by skipping needles, we can create creases, bends, angles, shapes etc.

        We simulated the knitting mechanism based on certain rules. The white dots represent continuous movement and the orange dots represent the alternating movement. The rule followed here is that the needles first move continuously for a few rows. Then half the needles alternate between forward and backward movement and in the process, the remaining needles drop their loop. Finally when it resumes the constant continuous movement, the new loops formed create a puncture.

          Since the material properties i.e. the type, thickness, cross section etc. govern the behaviour of the yarn in knitting, we developed a simulation system for understanding and demonstrating material behaviour. Here we see how for a particular yarn, as the number of strands increases, the elasticity of the fabric reduces. www.knitectonics.com

              An intriguing example was that of the Netted Stinkhorns mushrooms. The body of these mushrooms arises from an "egg" and is complete with a laced, white "skirt" hanging 3-6 cm from the bottom edge of the cap, within a few hours.

This episode is part 2 of our field trip to the 2007 Maryland Sheep and wool festival. In this episode you’ll see: * The Sheep to Shawl Contest * A Sock knitting machine * An interview with Jessica Marshall Forbes from Ravelry and her friend Maya Mackowiak * Spinning from a rabbit * Fiber and yarn everywhere! Plus you’ll see what I took home from the festival….. These two episodes were our toughest field trip show to make up to this point. There was 6 hours of footage which Eric edited down to two episodes!
