>I’ve finished one sleeve of the Patons Symphony sweater. Still don’t know if there’ll be enough wool to finish the second one! I can see me having to pull out the tension square and use every last scrap to get it finished. Do you find that you knit quicker when you haven’t got much wool left – just so you get it done before you run out? How mad is that!
Thank you for the recent comments on my last couple of posts. I do agree with ‘W’ (Wendy?) about some hand knitters attitude towards machine knitting, ie quantity rather than quality. Kate has tried machine knitting and decided it wasn’t for her – a lot of hand knitters have never even seen a knitting machine and are too quick to condem them without realising exactly what can be done with them.
Chris, are you the same Chris that posted on the Knitting Today message board about winning the ebay auction for the Elite and ribber? Was it the one where the seller had (I think) three machines in the one lot and it was collection only? If I remember rightly that’s why I didn’t bid on it as I wouldn’t have been able to collect the machines if I won. Well done anyway, if you want the instructions on how to do the circular knitting on the Elite just let me know and I’ll send them to you.
Talk to you later,
