Not everyone has the time or money to attend fashion college.  OpenKnit is a DIY project that lets you play designer, manufacturer and consumer from the comfort of your own home.  For under $700, you receive materials and instructions to create a loom-like machine that connects to a computer and knits on demand.  You can download pre-existing patterns from OpenKnit’s online files or simply customize your own designs.  Although OpenKnit is still considered to be in its infancy, it is obvious that this is the immediate future of fashion converging with technology.
