Slightly Amplified Knitting

Slightly Amplified Knitting enables those who knit to further add to the experience by increasing the resulting sounds.

It consists of a set of knitting needles with built in mini-microphones that broadcast the resulting clickings and scrapings to a speaker hidden in the ball of wool. The volume is best set to slightly louder for maximum subtle effect.

also available: Slightly Amplified Knives, Forks, and Spoons

       I knit, and I approve. Though me thinks you have a strange brain sometimes.

       // spoons // I'm not sure about this one, unamplified soup sucking noise is enough for me.

       I thought this was going to be about physical amplification - i.e. linking normal-sized needles to giant ones and knitting with 1" rope. See [link] for Waldo = remote manipulation.

       Can't wait for the slow-mo close-up video of the knitting with highly amplified sounds.

       Avast! It's the Black Purl!   

       Thank goodness...As long as it's not The Green Pearl.

       I do not know this term 'green pearl'... and I am not sure that I want to.
Do I want to?

       How bout having the sounds trigger separate audio samples? So instead of the clicking and scraping sounds you would hear:   

       - explosions and gunfire - diabolical laughter - horror movie sound effects - porno movie soundtrack moans and groans - a step sequence of all the parts to Flight of the Valkyries - the latter being my favorite.   

       By step sequence I mean that with each loop, stitch and hook you get the next note in the song played. So it would be like: Loop-Dun... Stitch- Dun... Hook-DunDun... Parry (or whatever) Daaah... Etc. People would definitely say "Wow! What are you knitting?"
