Doing some machine knitting

I'm a member of the Guild of Machine Knitters as well as the Knitting and Crochet Guild and the Weavers Spinners and Dyers Online Guild. Having been a member of the WSD Online Guild for several years I've run a couple of knitting workshops for them so I suggested doing the same for the Guild of Machine Knitters.

So this month I am running the first machine knitting workshop for the Guild. The choice of subject was left to me so I decided to take this opportunity to explore one punchcard and knit it in as many variations as I can think of. I've started with Fair Isle as this is the stitch pattern most people use on their machines. I posted the first few files on the Yahoo groups website last week.

I've been busy knitting tuck stitch and slip stitch samples over the last few days, trying lost of variations with solid colours and with 2 or more colours. I've still got to write up the notes so i better get back to work as I'll need to upload these files later this week, but its been good to do some machine knitting again even if it is only samples!!
