I'm so pleased that I've finally managed to get the time and space to get my Bond knitting machine back up and running.
It's been at least 10 years since I last regularly used it! Thankfully it's all in great order and working faultlessly.
I think machine knitting must be a bit like riding a bicycle as I haven't fogotten how to do most of it.
I've already finished and listed my first completed project - the lovely half-sleeve shrug.
I used a gorgeous variegated purple mercerised pure cotton yarn, machine-knitted the main body, handknitted the ribbing, and crocheted the lower edging and flower brooch pin.
It's a great little cover-up for summer, and my eldest daughter is already requesting one for herself!
