I've been an avid knitter since 5 years and wanted to know how the experience can be simplified. For starters, I bought a hand knitting machine last year- but I discovered that it needed me to push a carriage across from one end of the needle bed to the other. This was very painful, and it was repetitive. I went ahead and looked to know if there were people who developed a robotic arm to move the carriage. To my surprise, there were nobody!
I went ahead and created a program along with a friend to get together this contraption that would use a joystick, a Nema 34 high-torque motor, and an Arduino Uno to spin this up!
