Lace and Designaknit

Brother 940 with Designaknit and cable

thread lace

For the last couple of days I have been attempting a couple of things with Designaknit. The first thing was to draft a chart for a transfer lace design I had considered using, and this I did successfully. Once it was in and saved I then downloaded it into the Brother 940 machine and then it was simply knitting the pattern. Cannot say I was overly impressed with the technique of thread lace as unless you use a very similar colour it seems to shadow it quite a bit. Basically I knitted a few swatches and decided I did not like the texture or the look and moved on. Typical of me.
