Another sock machine day

December 11, 2009

Today I made a nicer set-up bonnet and everything went very well. I made a hung hem, tried different numbers of needles, different yarns and messed about with the stitch lengths while doing so. The bonnet is still on the machine, so will put up a photo when the tube is long enough to cut off the bonnet. I am going to continue trying yarns and practice more heels next. The machine is working more smoothly all the time and as I get to know it I pick up the little cues that tell me when something might go wrong.

    Well Yeah! Maybe some socks for family since I’m sure a number of them have been watching and hearing about
    all the tinkering going on?
    Hope the deep freeze has moved out of your neck of the world!
