Wow. That's so funny I'm so speechless i forgot how to laugh!

~My best friend's sister's boyfriend's brother's girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who's going with a girl who saw Ferris pass out at 31 Flavors last night. I guess it's pretty serious.~

Please come see my Etsy shop! www.notjustpurses.etsy.com Thanks Smiley

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.

waaaiiiit...  there's morse code on the Interpol album?  Which one?  Eh I wouldn't know, it's my bf's CD, I just ripped it to listen to on the iPod :-)

Anywho.  That is a fantastic idea!  You are very creative!  And thank you for sharing with us.  Great job!

it's been said before, but i ADORE this idea.  i keep trying to imagine what i would stitch into an article of clothing, and i keep coming back to the cat power song where she sings, 'it's so hard to go into the city, cuz you wanna say, 'hey, i love you' to everybody.' 

i just might have to make a hat that says 'hey, i love you,' shy-person style.

I got glow in the dark yarn during stitches west, here's a link to the shop that had it:


The yarn is called 'nightlights', I found it to be kinda scratchy, so an entire glow in the dark garment might be uncomfortable.  I've used it for intasia designs and in moderation it's not so bad...

K, I have this issue where I need things spelled out very clearly for me.  I have this guy friend who wants me to make him a hat, so I need to figure out how to do this morse code thing.  Since morse code is made up of long, short I'm a little confused with how you divided.  Say I were to do, "I love you"  Kiss.  You would put two white stitches between I, love and you?  Correct?  Did you put one white stitch between letters such as l, o and v?  Or did you put one white stitch between each break.  l is .--.. (short, long ,short, short, I guess?)  haha.  So would you do one orange, one white, three orange, one white, one orange, one white, one orange for that?  And then do one white and continue on with the morse code for o?  I hope this makes sense.  I'm sometimes a bit slow.  So thanks for your help.  Haha.

Messel, I'm having a similar issue with figuring out how to knit a scarf in binary code.  I've converted my message into binary (0's and 1's), but how do I translate it into stripes for the scarf, like a barcode?

each black row is a 1. and each grey row is a 0.

So I just knit a hat for my boyfriend, and I realized that because we knit moving stitches from the left needle to the right one, I think I knit my message in a way that you have to read it from right to left.  You know what I mean?

Does anyone have advice about how to make it not happen like that?  One thing I did that did help was put this all into a grid of the 84 stitches I had on the needles (dpns) and then just colored in when I needed to use the stitch color.  So I could just knit along the grid, and that helped keep things straight.

Also, I did two stiches for dash and one for dot, leaving one stitch between dots and dashes in each letter and two stitches between letters

so the word K-A-T

which is: -.- .- -

was (using black wool on white):
bl bl wh bl wh bl bl wh wh bl wh bl bl wh wh bl

K = bl bl wh bl wh bl bl (dash dot dash)
space = wh wh
A = bl wh bl bl (dot dash)
space = wh wh
T = bl (dot)

Hope that doesn't make this all more confusing... And if anyone has insights into this right-to-left reading thing, please let me know!

I'll post pictures - I made one for him and now I'm working on one for me...
