These Emission Spectra Scarves are lovingly machine-knit from black and colored 100% cotton yarn. They measure about 6.5 feet long and 7 inches wide.
Pictured above is Limor (Ladyada) Fried wearing Silicon and Matt Mechtley sporting a custom quasar.
This scarf was originally Amanda Wozniak‘s idea.

The fffffat crew is meeting up in Berlin next week for Transmediale. I can’t make it out, but I did make a tutorial for fffffatting up your hoodie, so the gang can roll in style without me. I’ll be missing you guys!
I’m working on some felt electronics, this time pushbuttons in addition to knobs. Moxie taught me how to needle felt, which makes it easier to form a dense defined shape than with wet felting. I first make little marshmallow-shaped cylinders, then bore a hole and insert the button or knob. A few more pics are at my Flickr.
This is a tutorial for my LED Sewing Kit, where you can include LEDs into an embroidered picture or into a garment of your choice.

This iceberg is made from cotton/linen yarn and then stiffened with acrylic. Inside is a polar bear made from ice which slowly melts down and out through the sterling silver drain on the sloped platform. The iceberg itself was made using a knotless netting technique.

I added these blinking lights to my fatlab patch for riding my bike at night, and show you how in the above video. You can also look at the instructable or download the code and schematic for this soft circuit project.
