New Knitting Machine — Fan Of… #93

Hi all 😁 Feel free to join in this weekly challenge whenever you find yourself thinking “I’m a fan of…” (see below for how to).

This week’s Fan Of… 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 πŸ˜ƒ

  1. That is so awesome! Great job! Have you ever thought of doing this and selling them on Etsy? It’s the perfect type of product for that platform. πŸ™‚

  2. That is one funky hat! Great idea. I remember watching my great gran knit and I could never get the hang of it! I have one of the hats she knitted for me in the early 90s. I treasure it!

  3. Wow Jez, that looks like a wonderful knitting machine and your hat is amazing! πŸ˜€πŸ‘

Great to hear your thoughts πŸ˜ƒ
