I am trying to make a summer tank on the knitting machine;
a maiden voyage!
After a few false start, it moved right along-even with decreases happening for waist shaping!
I made a swatch first-no skipping this step when you are working on the knitting machine!
After a ton of counting, and averaging, I found my gauge.
And then the work began!
The math wasn't hard but there was a lot to think about!
I hope I have all the bugs worked out for this but if not,
it is pretty easy to rip out and try again.
I am going to conquer this!
Look at those beautiful stitches!ReplyDelete
Cool! How long have you had a knitting machine? What else have you made using it?ReplyDelete
Once the prototype is finished, you'll have a drawer full of sweaters.ReplyDelete
Very cool. I really admire people who understand how those work!ReplyDelete
Wow. IVe never known someone who knit by machine. FascinatingReplyDelete
That looks like a lot of work. I am sure that all that planning and math will pay off in the end. I need to take a page out of that book! I tend to just start knitting.ReplyDelete
You can do it!ReplyDelete
That is a lot of math for summer vacation! :) Fun to try new stuff, though!ReplyDelete
