New Machine Knit Club Launched
What a busy week. I have neglected my poor blog.
I went to a meeting Wednesday.
Thusday we went to our spinning group and met some lovely new fibre that Wendy Mitchel had brought home for her recent European sojourn.
The tops were over 16 inches long and then the bottom was a very cause but prolific shorter fibre
We sat and had a giggle while Wendy and i tried to assemble her new to her Ultimate sweater Maker.
The Ultimate part was putting it together.
Two of us plus reading the manual and we succeeded and between the two of us, knitted 6 inches of stocking stitch in 2 hours.
I know Wendy’s speed of knitting and I would bet hands down on Wendy.
I note it made it beginnings in Knit shops at price near $300. Later to chain stores for $200 and now is in T.r us
I received the following announcement which is note worthy. Please read.

We find we are needing several cast on combs. If any one has any extra, please speak up.
We found that we could download the manuals for free for most machines at
Remember machine under the bed knitters, the two main things to check on your machine is the sponge bar, and oiling it the metal on the machine especially the moving part, butts of needles, and rails where the carriage runs as well as the underside of the carriage
Use a good quality machine oil.
So lets see our numbers swell bring those beautiful machines out from under the bed, out in the back hall or down in the basement and lets hear then sing.
