Back is all done and blocked perfectly to my schematics. Wish I could show you how beautifully this fabric hangs. And because it is sock yarn, it will probably outlast me.
But for a sock yarn, it is one of the nicer ones. Heritage Sock yarn is 75% Merino Wool, 25% Nylon. You can tell it is good quality wool! Not any of the itchy, inexpensive stuff for me!! Yep, I'm spoiled!!
Front is all done and I'm getting ready to bind off the neck band.
This is an SK280, standard gauge, knitting machine. This is a punch card model. The punch card models are workhorses. I've had electronics, and feel the Brother made the most awesome electronics, but if you want a machine that will last and last, and is easier than most to learn, you will want a punch card model!
Stay tuned!! I should have an almost complete top to show you tomorrow. But for now, I MUST go back to work. Knitting Pure and Simple has 5 new patterns and I need to get them on the yarn-store.com web site!
