Well, i dont really know what to say. Ive been naughty and bought another machine! Oooops but i have told myself thats got to be the last! (Apart from the 302 Ribber of course)
Ive always wanted one though, as i tend to use lots of double knitting thickness wool, and even though i can knit it on the chunky, because the gauge is different, im only limited to the 110 needles on the 155 which isnt enough for making anything my size at the gauge required for the DK. Also DK doesnt work on the standard in my opinion. It either jams in the carriage, or knits a very uncomfortable stiff fabric - too tight!!
So ive invested in the HK-160 6mm machine with punchcard facility. Its going to be nice getting to know a machine a bit different to usual Knitmasters. Im intriqued at there being no sponge bar in the needle bed though - i suppose a blessing really. One less thing to check.
Im going to pick it up one night this week as the seller only lives fairly close. I will obviously be uploading some pics when it arrives home.
Catch you later
