I have a couple of knitting machines that I got a couple of years ago. One of them is a Silver Reed LK-150. It is a plastic bed, 150 needle, pretty basic machine but it makes such beautiful, hand-knit looking items. It is also the easiest machine I have. The others are all fussy and complain a lot. This machine just works every time. Hard to complain about that.
I was just doing a little practicing and I cast on about 90 stitches.
I did a 4 row tuck on every 4th stitch in a column all the way up the piece. I m
ade it about 50” long and grafted the ends together (no tw
st – it is not an infinity loop).
It turned out interesting. Before it was blocked, the tuck stitches made a texture that
resembled little bubbles.
It did shrink quite a bit but was still wearable by my skinny niece as either a cowl or shoulder loop.
