A New Toy For Me!

This is what my daughter and family in Colorado gave me for my birthday!

The NSI International Innovations Knitting Machine



It's a 44 needle crank type that can handle worsted wt yarns.

So I've been playing around and making some hats.
Made one simple one, took it off the machine to hand knit the crown and ribbing.
The second one I made a long tube for a double thickness hat.


Having fun and learning - patience is needed!


The two roll brimmed hats below were made with Red Heart sports wt yarn.




In between I managed to make another pair of Little Feet for the challenge.

These are from Bev's Stay On Bootie pattern. I added a little two color knit toe.
