Latest Project

Maybe my last project of the year, before it gets too hot here to knit.
It's a pattern I made up from a Reverse Herringbone Scarf pattern I found on the net.
Got some lovely Alpaca yarn from the Hunter Valley just north of Sydney.
I am making it for my God-daughter before she moves to Melbourne next year.
The only stipulation was that it had to be "Sex Bomb Red", not tacky "Hooker Red"

If anyone is looking for a quick knit up stocking stuffer these are great. The pattern is from The Knitting Man(ual) and is done in some left over sock yarn (Socrates - Alpaca with Twist.) I can knit them up in a couple if nights and people love them.

Machine Knitting..

Love seeing all your great projects and reading the lively anecdotes.

I was wondering if any of you are interested in machine knitting or if this is even the right forum? I've seen a couple of posts on the subject and am sort of surprised that more guys don't seem that intrigued. I mean really: needles? MACHINE? Come on!
