This is the Information Technology (shout out to Dan) edition of Rebecca's Knit Blog. A bit, as we have learned, is the smallest unit of data and it is either a 1 or a 0. A byte is 8 bits grouped together, these groupings can make about 256 characters. The title of today's entry is written in binary, do you know what it says?

In the spirit of that I just want to share a few binary based knitting patterns that I have found. First is this lovely hat that says HAT in binary. The same designer also made these armwarmers that say ARMWARMERS in binary. Mildly redundant but still fun. Finally, this scarf is in binary but they encourage you to come up with your own combination of characters. This way you could say something really snarky like "Nerds can read this" though I think if you knit something in binary you're pretty nerdy yourself. Which is totally ok.

The title for today's entry says "knitting" or at least that's what this site told me it says :)
