I have to admit – I am TOTALLY caught up in Machine Knitting at the moment. I’ve had two machines packed away for a couple of years that I inherited….trying not to hear them calling me when ‘ere I walked past. I knew it was a slippery slope.
Now that I seem to have all but abandoned regular knitting I am totally hooked on either replicating patterns via the machine or mastering the basics so I can write my own ones.
Yesterday I worked on Kozue….a simple enough pattern but wonderfully converted (by those talented Melbournian Machine Knitters) into a super easy first machine knit pattern. It really took me way tooooo long but I learnt an awful lot and really love the result.
I had looked at all the wonderful monochromatic examples already knit, but had my mind on a rainbow type scarf….but not too in your face-type-of-rainbow…the inspiration to use the Fiddlehead fern cotton thread (yep – that’s right, Fiddlehead fern) really pulled the scarf together. A light and airy 59gms worth of Dairing Super Fine Merino and the wonderful Fiddlehead Fern Cotton thread throughout.
