Tuesday......

Tuesday used to be just another day in the middle of the week, now it is just another day in the middle of my business. All the days are melding into one at the moment - all one long day in this room. Everything is set up in the room now, for those who don't believe see pictures below (J). The machine is right underneath the window so it gets the sun when there is some. Today was a sunny day and it was too hot by the window by midday. I was worried about getting knitter's arm - where one of my arm's get a tan from being in the sun. Today was sleeve's, two sleeves completed. Next I need to get buttons to complete the button stand- so the cardigan isn't finished today.

I tried using Mylar sheets in the machine for the first time today. Mylar is a plastic sheet which you can draw a pattern/picture on to, this is then fed into the machine and the machine picks up the image and helps you knit it. However it was a fail, I didn't have the right pen so the machine didn't pick up what I drew. I've ordered a pen off the BSK Ebay site so hopefully it will turn up this week and I can try again, I will crack it so I can knit pattern's faster!

Hopefully I am going to pick up the other knitting machine (KH260) this week with the help of my lovely assistant - Mama. I will be really fun once it arrive's as I can start on all my chunky yarns I have saved up - any chunky requests? 
Lastly I found a great Etsy site and blog of another knitter/crafter in St. Helens. She also has Multiple Myeloma and talks about how crafting helps her through. Get reading -: http://www.etsy.com/listing/59561297/elf-christmas-stocking-knitting-pattern?ref=sc_1
