I think I may have just passed the threshold into extreme geekdome

I just wrote out my initials (AHW)

Converted them to HEX code (41 48 57)

Converted THAT into binary (010000010100100001010111)

And then converted the binary into knitting (k1, p1, k5, (p1k1)x2, k1, p1, k4, (p1k1)x2, p3)

Just because I thought it would be cool to do.

Perhaps I will use this to sign my knitting from now on.

(wanna do the same? you bunch of freaks! Go here)

This has so much geek related knitting potential, I'm giddy!

Are you going to post and show us what it looks like?

I haven't actually knit it up yet; most of my projects haven't had the space.

But I am planning a sweater, and I was thinking about slipping it into the hem when I do it.

OK, it's been 5 years and the link supplied no longer works but my inner geek needs to try this. I have my initials converted to binary how do I now translate that into knitting?

capless - simply convert 0s to ks and 1s to ps
