Machine knit group #01- setting up, knit & cut

The first session at NEPHRA of the machine knitting group. A small turn out but some useful basics covered. I helped Terry setup the machine from scratch, and try some basic stocking stitch before moving onto two colours. Iris and Barbara looked at the punchcard mechanics of the Brother KH 881.

We also watched a video about knitter Karen Allen on the Martha Stewart website, who uses a ‘knit and cut’ technique to quickly create garments. This led us to knit some samples for Terry to try felting with.
