Instruction Manuals

January 19, 2017

I wanted to say a few words that were on the home page – namely do not forget to check out youtube for loads of stuff re knitting machines including videos on how to cast on to get you started – note most domestic knitting machines are similar in the way they cast on, just look for single or double bed.  If you need instruction manuals take a look at this the this site, it has manuals from many machines plus pattern books – I just love it – however, please note – I do not copy or supply instruction manuals, this is yet another good reason to post on the forum, someone, somewhere, may be able to help.

Another fantastic platform I have found is pinterest – I thought this was just a photo app and joined it with trepidation, but now I know different.  It looks at my searches and uploads stuff that interests me, it seriously shows you why you should explore machine knitting – it’s a fantastic hobby with so much you can do, i.e. not just woollen jumpers. 

  

Machine knitting has changed so much, unfortunately there are not so many magazines out there - I know of only one in the UK i.e. Machine Knitting Monthly.   I find it a bit geared toward the hand knitter nowadays – in the old days there were up to 20 odd patterns in the magazines, perhaps the reason they all went to ground was that the patterns/designers forgot about shape and concentrated on patterns on the garments – I look back and seriously I could scream when I see how many horrible drop shoulder designs came onto the scene.  What do you feel about this subject?

 

My latest foray into social media is facebook - I have always avoided it because of privacy concerns - however I have come to realise now, there is no such thing on the web.
