Sorry Everyone For My Long Absence!

I am deeply sorry for being offline for a while, my computer finally gave up the ghost and was without one for some time, I have a new one now so with hope should be posting regularly.
I have not done any knitting at all, oh, I tell a lie, I set the Knitmaster 155 up with the ribber to see how the new clamps worked that I got from my sister for Christmas.
The ribber works flawlessly and I managed to sit there for a couple of hours making a few different types of ribs. I need to get a short chunky ribber comb as I only have the full 110 needle comb which is a bit cumbersome when making smaller samples or projects.

As for the hand knit baby jacket and the tuck pullover for my nephew Oskar, they have not been continued with for some time. I need to sew in the last sleeve and sew up the side seam on the tuck pullover and I need to knit, well, a lot on the hand knit baby jacket!! I had given up with it before Halloween which I promised myself I wouldn't!! Hopefully I can continue with that too (famous last words)

Talk to you later,

Alex.

    1. Depending on the machine you are working on I.E: standard/mid gauge/chunky. I could recommend the machine knitters treasure chest, they have some nice easy kids patterns and all sorts of patterns that are quite easy and they cater for all the different gauge machines.
      Here is a link.

  2. Hi Alex, glad to see you got your new computer :)
    I have been doing a lot of hand knitting, I packed the knitting machines up for christmas to make room for the xmas tree and haven't had the chance since to put them back up.

    1. Thanks, Heather.
      I haven't been knitting for a while because I haven't had much time or space to set up my machines.

  3. Hi Alex, I wondered if you could be of any help. I was recently given a Knitmaster empisal 360 with ribber, however I cant make heads or tails of how to use it, I'm completely new to machine knitting, I've managed to assemble it and thread it up, but nowhere on the internet can i find a video or instructions of what to do next. I've tried putting a few needles into B position, place the yarn through the middle of the carriage and then going from right to left, which seems to cast on, but when I take it back from left to right. It gets stuck? Any help would be very much appreciated
