Today as you probably know I have picked up the Knitmaster 360 that I won on eBay yesterday and I have to say I am really pleased with it, I took these pictures prior to cleaning it which I spent most of the afternoon doing as well as traveling for it lol. I had taken the end caps and casing of the machine and gave it a good vacuum out inside but anyway what do you think?
As you can see from the pictures the UV discolouration like described on the listing is only slight but it doesn't bother me as long as it isn't nicotine yellow.
I took out the sponge bar and as you can see it's like a week old bottle of coke, flat as anything you can see at the right hand end what it should be like and what it is like, so that will need to be replaced but apart from that the machine works great, I only tested knitting over a few needles while I had it on the floor but I don't want to risk damaging it until I have a new sponge bar.
I also bought some 4ply yarn from my local yarn shop, I got a 400 gram cone of classic gold 100% acrylic yarn in royal blue and I also bought two bags of the same yarn, elle family knit, it is just in different colours one is in a beige shade and the other is in a navy blue shade, there is 500 grams in the beige and there is 350 grams in the navy, it is 100% courtelle which I think is some type of acrylic yarn? they were on sale and hey who doesn't look in the sale basket when there is one lol.
Talk to you later
