Episode 24 - Moving
Please join in the Ravelry group for this podcast.
Rave - express manicures with Nail Envy. I didn’t know that they had so many colors of this stuff.
Rant - squirrels and their walnut eating habits.
The Michigan Machine Knitting Guild has a group on Ravelry. Our next meeting is October 24.
I forgot to mention the Ann Arbor Fall Fiber Expo - late notice - October 22-23 at the fairgrounds.
I saw Sandee Cherry and all 50 of her books and patterns in Grand Rapids.
I bought a used Singer DL-1000 Linker from a guild member. I am a convert!
I am getting a Brother Knit Leader and the Diana Sullivan DVD about using it.
There is a similar device called a Knit Radar for Studio/Sliver Reed machines. Susan G. made a video years ago all about the LK150 machine and in it, she also demonstrates a knit radar. I couldn’t find a link to it unfortunately.
Design A Knit software does a lot and costs a lot. It might be just what you need.
I enjoy designing Garment Designer software.
Brother made an accessory to use on the machine bed that will link pieces together or bind off live stitches. It is a version of the big drum linkers. Here’s an image of one Brother Linker.
The Shadow Lace Tool is a jaws-like device that transfers stitches between the main and the ribber beds. It will work on any standard gauge machine.
I bought 40 pounds of coned yarn at Davidson’s Old Mill Yarn.
Left and Right Mittens made for my daughter.
I made a second panel for the Bathroom curtain using my bulky machine and ribber.
I also made a dishcloth using some cotton yarn. I used the #30 pattern from Stitchworld, elongated over 50 needles and knit 176 rows of tuck.
Still looking for Audrey Palmer’s book on the subject - Create with Knit-Weave. What is the Louis System?
There is another Susan Gaugliumi Craftsy class coming soon.
Poached salmon is delicious and good for me. This is a link the the Cook’s Illustrated recipe that I use. I think I’m not allowed to post the recipe without permission so it may be that you won’t be able to see it without a paid membership. Shrimp doesn’t taste as good as I remember.
