knitting machines

I am the proud new owner of TWO knitting machines. One is a tabletop empisal the other is a standalone 4 colour big one. Sorry I haven't opened it up yet. The small one is straining my brain enough as it is. So far I have made a toddlers hat. I have bought 5 cones of Bendigo 3 ply. 2 in hot pink, 2 in ink and 1 in bright blue.
So far I have learned how to do two colours ummm, plating and striping. Looks great with one side one colour and the other another.

Thanks Jennifer!

I have just sent off a parcel for my Ample Knitters Secret Pal. It will take about 2 weeks to get to her in America. I hope that she isn't dissapointed as after reading about just how MUCH others put in their parcels. Oh well, two skeins of handspun fine merino and a 200gm ball of Bendigo boucle in blue and a bar of Darrell Lee chocolate. I would be happy! I am also a month behind. Life is not allways the way you would like it to be.
