I love knitting on my Silver Reed LK-150 knitting machine and I find that hand-manipulated lace is particularly relaxing to do once you get into the rhythm. It replicates hand-knits so well and is SO much faster. Scarves are so “hot” right now, at least in Michigan (it is Winter after all).
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.
