...and kicking

Footy on tv = me in the workroom listening to audio books and machine knitting all night.



A pattern I have long wanted to try, one I actually cast on and then abandoned.

 It occurred to me last week it should work on the machine and a quick scout on Ravelry confirmed someone else had already worked that out.
Now I have my own clapotis, in a super lux deep and subtly variegated red yarn from wollmeise (another little destash score).

Nice. That fist picture is beautiful. And I love the colour.

You aren't ever going to pick up the needles again are you?

Lovely clapotis, if I had a machine I might make one too!

I am very impressed by your knitting machine work! I have a friend who has just bought one and I'm itching to see how it works

Can't believe what wonderful things you are turning out. Machine alchemy.

Leah said...

Wow! No doubt it's fiddly learning how, but the speed is amazing! I might have to start looking out for a machine myself :)

It took you a whole lot less time than mine did :) Looks great!

Beautiful - such a vibrant colour and lovely drape!

yah for footy!

I walked past a knitting machine in the op shop and was so tempted to bring it home (all because of your postings!) Another time perhaps, like when I have children who sleep & time to devote to working it all out (the machine, not the sleeplessness!)

Angie, I'd definitely encourage yourself or anyone else for that matter to snap up op shop finds! They are becoming rarer as time goes on and whether you put it away for a future date or list it on ebay (where you are sure to make a considerable profit!) either way it will make it back into use rather than sitting around and rusting.

Excellent work. I'm very impressed.
