Okay, I'm taking the plunge. I have size one needles and fingering weight sock yarn. I'm looking for tips, tricks and suggestions before I start. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.
...or to your man who knits!
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.

I have been researching Double Knitting(DK) and wanted to share what I have found so far. Here is a list of DK tutorials in picture form.
Thought I would step out of my comfort zone and try some fun cabling. Color coding the patterns seems like a wise thing to do. Time will tell.
Just love Brooklyn Tweed's Men Vol 1. I see several projects I'll need to complete. Love Jared's & his friends designs.
Just finished the vest I have been working on. It's a nice moss green. Light enough to wear during the summer - at least in San Francisco where our summers can be a little cooler than the rest of the country. It'll look nice with a white t-shirt, or even a dress shirt. Thanks to those who helped when I couldn't figure out the pattern. As with most projects, I learned a lot!
I blocked the sweater I made and, simply put, it grew! If I reblock it and reshape it by pushing the yarn tighter together and pinning it, should it then stay put? The arms did grow a few inches more that I had wanted and if I can't make is smaller by reblocking it, then I can always rip out a few inches and redo the last few inches.
Well, deep subject, finally am settled down to the significant business of becoming a legitimate knitter and putting in the due diligence. But...as always one needs tools. OK, I need some serious input about DPN's because I want to be able to do socks, hats, and fingerless gloves. Maybe even ones with fingers sometime.
