Any one of you lovely lady or gents tried this? Before I get out my hammer and nails just wanted to know if it was worth it....
No, always use the hand version., interesting though
So I better get my hammer and nails out then and make one....
No TA¦.two parallel pieces of wood joined with bolts to keep them together but apart. Nails bashed in round the edges and the knitting goes down the gap in the middle. You wind the wool around the nails and slip one stitch over the other. It's a bit like corking if you remember from your youth. The knit produced is double sided and there are lots of patterns on the tinternet.
As for knitting machines, I have two in England and none here. Postage or excess baggage would be astronomical¦forget it. If any one is bringing a car over¦I'll book a little space for one at least or maybe even find a new 'secondhand' one on ebay¦.mine have been in the loft for years.
Well it wasn't me ....
I loved mine...made a lot of the children's clothes on it, lovely lacy shawls...I liked it because it was mathematical...work out the tension and the rest was easy...I miss it....and still have a huge amount of cone wool in the loft in England. All this time on my hands though for the next few days....things might change........
Are you sure it wasn't you Elsa, it's got me thinking now, and maybe it was my sister...or was it my mate Julie, or maybe Trish....bloody hell, how can you forget who you lent something like that to.
It's started then ....senile dementia....or maybe it's me that forgot I borrowed it....
I tried a machine too but much prefer hand knitting!
