Embroidered LED circuit

Whooo! CONDUCTIVE YARN!!

Like, actual yarn, not something with a continuous filament of steel in it, which is basically wire!

Well easy to work with, happy days :)

I wanted to make a square wave generator, but I haven't figured out a good way to sew on the IC's. They're a little fiddly. Also, I can't find my wee baggy of 555's, so I'd have to use half a 556 instead and that seems wasteful.

So, you might not be able to see the traces that well, on the left hand side I measured out a little over 1kohm worth of yarn and darned it back and forth as a resistor. So that's cool.

Everything else is just embroidered in. As you can see it works. So that's a start
