And one very big thing! I got me the instruction manual for my knitting machine, as a PDF dad printed it off and presented me with this tome!I think it was a good thing to get, its rather complicated, from reading the instructions we found a whole contorl panel we didbt know was there! and it has a port to attach a floppy drive!!!
So far I have set it up and made Stocking Stitch, havent managed anything more complex as yet...
Next up an FO or 2. A teacher in my dads dept has just had a wee baba and he asked me to knit her summat for him thus:
Cool Blue sweater from Knit Today magazine (issue 12 i think) in Elle Splish Splash.
I also made these to go with it
Saarjties Booties, same yarn
I wasnt sure how much yarn i would have left over at the end as it turns out, not much at all:
I had to shall we say amalgamate some end to finish off, i really thot i was gonna run out on the last strap and buying a new ball for something like 46 stitches would not have been wise!!
so thats that and of course i started something new (check me out with my project monogamy mhm)Holiday Romance off te shoulder top from sSimply Knitting, tis now twice this length wheeee
