V neck navy tank top finished, and progress on blue cardigan

Ive started knitting a light blue cardigan with some 4 ply - i did the back tonight and will probably start the fronts tomorrow.

The navy tank top is finished now and i wore it yesterday. Must say im very pleased with it seeing as it is the first thing i have made for myself on the knitting machine.

Thats all for now

Knitmaster ES 302 and V Neck Tank Top progress.

Here are some photos i have been meaning to upload - i really do love this machine, i have had some fun with it since i set it up last friday. It took me a while to give it a good clean and service, as it was very filthy and the back rail was virtually black! Sponge bar has been replaced and machine is working fine - apart from two damaged needles in the centre of the bed that ive replaced with ones from the ends.

Its a lot smaller than i imagined, well, compared to the 700 its much smaller. Ive set it up where the 700 was and the 700 has gone underneath the table for a while.

So, here's the start of what ive made on the 302 this afternoon. Its a V neck tank that i'm making out of some navy 4 ply i bought in town yesterday. Ive also made a pair of socks in a lighter blue 4 ply and they turned out great, even if a tad too small. Just got the ribbed arm bands and neck band to do then its done - hope it turns out okay.

Thats all for now
