>I’ve been playing with the Knitmaster 700 and all in all I’m very happy with the machine.
I think I may have to get one of the LC2 lace carriages for this machine although from what I’ve read on the knitting machine groups some people have used the 360/260 carriage on the 700 with no problems.
I also had a go at intarsia and although I didn’t take a photo the result was successful. The annoying thing is that I just bought an intarsia carriage to use on the 321 but I never got chance to use it. The 700 doesn’t need a seperate intarsia carriage as the main carriage can do it so I wasted my money there. Oh well, I suppose I can always put it back on ebay.
Today I knitted the front and back of a plain black v-neck sweater. The only problem I had was when I mis-read the pattern and had to pull some of it out and re-knit it – the machine worked perfectly.
So tomorrow I’ll knit the sleeves and possibly the neckband unless I get sidetracked and do someting else instead. I still need to sew the zip into the gilet that I knitted weeks ago and I still have a balaclava to sew up that I knitted months ago! I’ll get round to it eventually.
Talk to you later,
