Morning Wool

I fell asleep last night while knitting in bed -- trying to finish a 329-stitch row of purls. Woke up at 1:30, but roused myself only enough to flick off the light and go back to sleep. When the alarm went off at 6 my partner mumbled something about some knitting in the bed. The project had spent the night between us!

Summer fair...

Dear knitting friends,

You'll be pleased to know that I entered in to the spirit of life in the country by finishing and entering a colour work cardigan for the Sheldwich Lees village fair...and I was a little irked to come second to a first-prize-winning set of eggs with stuck on plastic eyes.

Anyway, I share the photos for you all....

To machine knit or not to machine knit?

Hi friends,
I have not posted for a long time. I have been hand knitting for about 10 years now and continue to knit daily. I have become curious of late about machine knitting. Are there any of you who have any words of wisdom for me about where to start? I would appreciate information about your personal experience with working on a machine.
Thanks,
Wade in Florida
