New Machine


A friend gave me a knitting machine she had in the corner of the house gathering dust. On Tuesday, I hauled it to Toronto along with my yarns to get it checked out. And ended up buying the machine that the yarns actually worked on from a place called Sew n Knit n Serge. I was lucky enough to have the choice between new and refurbished. I got a refurbished machine to learn on.

Its really neat. I can see all the stuff it can do. Makes me drool.

Hey I can link another blog I have been following! I was feeling a bit like this video, but now that I have this machine in my house I feel A LOT like the video that Ash blogged about last year!

I plan on feeding EVERY BIT of yarn that will fit in the machine through the machine. Oh yeah! Its amazing fun to run.

This is 3 ply fingering hemp that I dyed up.

I have some fingering tencel that is next…
