le_robot2_600px.jpgI'm not completely satisfied with the outcome of the electronic part (I wish I had used more LEDs) but it's not bad at all for a novice like me. No soldering involved : I just twisted wires together and sealed them with electrician tape. But my boyfriend is really good in electronics and I thought that if we put our hobbies together, we could create the ultimate knitted robot with cool flashing lights. And of course, seeking perfection, we decided to make it a female robot. ;-) She is actually taking form on my needles right now, so more on that later.
