I took this pattern and modified the chart for the digits and also added stitch to each edge. The extra stitch is slipped every other row so that you get a strong corner. I used 100% cotton "Sugar and Cream" yarn. I completed this back in January of 2008.

Photos are supposed to be here, but I can't post them because I'm new.

It's a quote from section 46 of the Tao Te Ching in Chinese BIG5 Unicode. It can be translated as:
    Knowing that enough is enough
    Is always

Since it won't let me post photos here, there are photos you can see in my flickr:

This is so cool! I'm in the process of knitting up one for my Partner with our names on, so it's really nice to see someone else's finished project!

That is so awesome! I love the quote, and I love the binary.

You know how at the top of the screen Craftster gives you little tips, like "Check out our list of tutorials!" and "Read our rules of etiquette!"? You have taken the "It's easier for Craftsters to discover you if you put an interesting title on your post" and ran with it! I was instantly pulled in. And WOW! What a combination to pull off, and so well! I love the way you did the ones and zeros, I love the quote, I just LOVE this! Well done!
