Thought it would be good to make a place for people to introduce themselves. To start, I'm Karen, and I'm a software developer. I've been programming a looong time now, so for me that's the easiest part of wearables. In my free time I love to craft. Pottery and knitting are my main crafts, but I also crochet, sew, cross stitch, and embroider. I've also dabbled in wood-burning, stenciling, paper crafts, and tie-dyeing.
I'm also into 3D printing. I've mostly printed other people's stuff, but I've been learning TinkerCAD and I'm working my way up to more complicated programs. Ideally I want to be able to model both geometric and sculptural kinds of things.
I've been trying to get into hobbyist-level electronics for awhile now, but that whole electricity thing intimidates me a bit; I'm always worried I'm going to burn something out. I'm pretty motivated to try and get that part figured out though so that I can unite my love of crafting and my love of programming. I'm interested in both wearable electronics and electronics in general.
