Shakespeare and QR Codes

Okay, so I have been having some fun creating QR Codes with lines from Shakespeare embedded in them because I had the bright idea of using QR codes as punchcard patterns for machine knitting. Like this one:

It reads "When love speaks, the voice of all the gods makes heaven drowsy with the harmony"
I had envisioned using quotes like this as edgings for cardigans.

However, it dawned on me that punch cards can only be 24 "punches" across and QR Codes are more than 24 squares across...sigh. I'd have to get a knitting machine than can handle more than 24 punches... Alas! Back to my idea of using a random pattern generator to create fair isle patterns...

It's a cool idea. You'll have to hand-knit it instead :)
