knitting machine

Tuesday, January 19th, 2010

Last week I received a tip off text from my good friend Ruth Green.  “Knitting machine in Extra Care Charity Shop £30″ From the picture below you can guess the rest.

It came with a box full of accessories but no instructions.

Since I’ve only ever seen other people use knitting machines I needed help.  Help arrived in the form of Liz Healy.  After a cup of tea and a chat we got down to the serious work of setting up the machine and testing it out.

I’m happy to report that it seems to work fine.  I also found an instruction manual on Ebay for 99p.  I just need to buy some suitable guage wool for it as my hand knit stash is too thick.
