Trip to Metropolitan

Had a trip to Metropolitan today.... had to get my Passap colour changer fixed as two of the plastic nubs had broken off (Dont know how!) Anyway I got that sorted, but also had a demonstration of Designaknit 8 from Carol Hocknell.

One word... AMAZING! Going to be getting the software in a couple of weeks, including the cable that will allow me to knit interactively with my 965i and the software on the laptop. All the Stitch world patterns come built in the software as too do the Silver Reed patterns. Its a very clever program that I am really looking forward to learn.

A trip to Metropolitan could only mean one more thing.... Yarn! Ooooops think I bought too much?? Naaaaa....

Im back!

Im back everyone! Sorry ive not posted. Sometimes it gets hard to remember to post when you have so many things on the go. I have been very busy with knitting for family and friends and not got round to knitting projects I have put in my list of things to do. Currently I am just finishing knitting a cardigan for my sister, knitted in Panama (Seal)

I came across a really talented machine knitter the other day... Helen Fox... here is her blog http://helensknittedbrows.blogspot.co.uk/

I found Helen on flickr though and thought her projects were fantastic. She had made the above cardigan in Yeomans Cannele (Ruby) and I thought it was lovely. I contacted Helen to ask where she got the pattern and I have managed to get a copy. I have tonight swatched a tension square in Cannele (Linen) and cant wait to get started... however i have told myself not to start it until other projects are finished.

Oh and PS I have some hand knitting on the go too....aaaaaargh!!!
