spoiled beyond repair

garter bar

the warp is behaving so incredibly well that i can get used to that, especially after the last warp from hell. the added problem with warps from hell is that they take so long to weave i get bored. 3 meters of fabric woven at a pace of a couple of centimeters per session and just to think of it i'm already bored.this new baby progresses at a very nice pace.

spoiler nº 2. my garter bar.i adore it.
look how easy it is to crochet the edging,  beats having 12 fingers i can tell you that.
i am sampling  a linen yarn on the knitting machine  a very apt excuse to get practice.

using punch cards nº 5 in a skip stitch,sample1


nº 2 in a tuck stitch 


 nº 16 in a lace pattern

all with my brother kh 890.
too bad brother stopped production because they are good sturdy numbers.if you happen to see a second hand one in good condition grab it without second thoughts.

and there's no 3 without 4. have been trying to get rid of those awful share icons in my photoblog.
blogger dynamic views incorporate them and they are a pain to delete. yesterday i found the only tutorial that worked for me. if you are using a dynamic view template go here .
you're welcome ;-)

    --really don't understand what you're talking about but I love the lace stitch and the tuck stitch is pretty cool, too!

  2. I'm almost tempted to get a knitting machine. Seems like a quick way to use up lots of yarn that would take forever on the loom. I've got stuff in the stash closet that would be perfect on a km...

  3. cara sto facendo una prova per vedere se riesco a commentare usando 'pulse'

  4. Yes, Orbweaver has been signing the praises of Brother machines on Ravelry. They are not as common on the second hand market as Singer machines!


interaction appreciated!
