I learned a new Craft
I identify myself as a Interactive Designer, Maker & Creative Technologist who aims to create solutions for society both in Peru and the US using my own personal identity, and cultural and professional backgrounds. All are sources for inspiration for my DT projects and the NYC creative and technology communities.
My favorite tool is always my notebook, pen/pencil and a sketchbook too because its always good to write down ideas in many different ways (mind maps, drawing, reading, etc) to get organized and perhaps see things that have been ignored. Thais is how I always start. Sometimes I replace the previously mentioned tools with a whiteboard and a few markers.
Finger knitting was one of the hardest things I have tried to learn this year. At first it was frustrating because the different tutorial videos made it look easy. I got to a point where I decided to shut down my computer and turn the music on. I found that it was very methodic and fun. My advice for whoever wants to start finger knitting would be trying with with different materials and thicknesses. Some good examples I saw used old t-shirts cut into long strips, very thick yarn, elastic fabric.
The following is the tutorial I watched to learn how to finger knit.
