New Knitting Machine — Fan Of… #93

Hi all ๐Ÿ˜ Feel free to join in this weekly challenge whenever you find yourself thinking “I’m a fan ofโ€ฆ” (see below for how to).

This week’s Fan Ofโ€ฆ a new knitting machine.

My wife recently bought a new knitting machine so that we could make our own hats, scarfs & gloves, & eventually jumpers & cardigans. I thought I’d give it a shot to make myself a hat!

From this…

Ball of yarn

To this…

Double thickness wooly hat

Using this…

The first hat I made was able to be worn with a brim…

Or as a slouch beanie…

So far, my wife & I have made several scarfs & hats. One of the hats I made for a colleague’s birthday (her mum has just ordered another one), & sold two to another colleague. So, we’ll see where we go from here.

We’ve also started making pom-poms for the hats as well, but that’s a post for another time ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

About three quarters of the pond at the Palacerigg Visitor Centre was frozen, giving the resident ducks a much smaller swimming area.
