Machine Knitters.....

......I'm back....
Interestingly Interweave did not reply to my email about current stuff for machine knitters. They do keep emailing me invitations to buy from their ever expanding crafting products and media, as though machine knitting doesn't even exist and I never wrote to them about it....

Hungry for machine knitting information and techniques and signs of a community, I've been stockpiling relevant books from before the mid 1990's back to the 1950s; The books from the 50s and 60s contain beautiful vintage tailored creations for those who are interested in making their own clothes.

Having stockpiled from EBay huge skeins of the fine wool that's allegedly being used for high end designer clothes such as St. John's, I am seriously considering making some clothes on my machines. My friends at Needle-Tek, Jerry and Bea, who run one of the only knitting machine repair shops sill in business today, helped me set up my Brother KH/KR 230 and H965 with KR 850 recently. I had those machines for years stashed in my garage. I also bought the December issue of "KNit'N Style", which, Kudos to the editors, has one article in there about machine knitting....,,

Hey guys, I welcome your thoughts, share with me!
