Well I did it, you know it never fails to amaze me how fast you can rip something back, compared to the time it took to crochet or knit it. I did in fact own a couple of knitting machines at one time. I taught myself how to use them, and they were a lot of fun. I will say that if you did happen to make a mistake, and sometimes the machine would make a mistake it could take up to an hour to get it corrected. So knitting machines can be very time consuming also. I don’t think people really appreciate the time and expertise it takes to make something on a knitting machine. I enjoyed using them, but I guess the truth of the matter is, I enjoy the feel of the yarn and working it with my hands. So anyway here’s a picture of the almost finished “Iced” sweater.
I did try it on one more time to make sure that it wasn’t going to work. I really love this pattern, and if its flattering for me it will look good on just about anyone. I also want to say that this yarn is very soft and I enjoy working with it.
So I have started again making it one size larger and have already gotten to the point of dividing for the sleeves, this is a fast knit, so with any luck I should be done in a couple of days. Just got back from walking, it was nice and crispy out there. They are cutting the corn. I love to watch the huge machinery at work. They sure have come a long way. Well you have a super day.
