yay dorky hidden messages! this was my valentine's day present to my boy:

(he refused to have any distinguishing features posted on the internet- hence the chopped off head)
it says "i love you, travis dunn." in binary. only i made a mistake and put in an extra 0 somewhere and it says something like "i love &$*(#)@*$*Fji/s^(*(%^"  oh well. at least it keeps him warm.

That is soo funny! What an ingenious hat!

I am making this.  Oh, my god.  And then giving it to someone and then not telling them.  I love you.

Check out my hand-dyed fiber!

I absolutely adore this idea! There's nothing quite like a secret message!

Meatwad: I'm satan's onion... or scallion, something like that.

Frylock: I think you mean minion.

Meatwad: oh yeah, that's right.

That hat is fantastic!! 

Did you duplicate stitch the morse bips on, or are those worked-in?

That binary scarf is neat too.  Visually, it's a nice stripe pattern, and then with a note even better.  I work in a store, and I sometimes think it would be neat to knit something that could be scanned by a bar code machine and come up with a message.  I have not figured out how to perfect that, though.

i used fair isle to knit in the morse code.  i figured the wearer of the hat might object to the message and try and remove the morse code; thus, i didn't just duplicate stitch it in because that would be easy to remove.  had i not, i think the message would have been changed to *i smell beautiful* or something... and that's just unacceptably nice.  negates the whole hidden message thing...

yes, i revel in my evilness.

Or, for the rest of y'all,
I actually met my husband through ham radio, so we both know morse code fairly well.  I'm thinking I should make him a hat, or better yet a scarf, and just fail to point out the encode message(s) - see how long it takes him to notice!  This would be an awesome thing to wear to a ham radio club meeting!!!! :-)

i LOVE both of those ideas! the morse and binary!

am currently knitting a beanie for Mr Courting-the-Bunny, and have decided it will include some morse.
havent decided on a message yet. Am thinking about 'my hat knows morse code'

don't want anything too cutesy. somehow 'i love you' is cool in binary, yet sad in morse code....

any message suggestions?

That's so sweet, wow!  Knitting in code rules!  Now I'm going to use the link you gave to decode the morse code on the Interpol album.
