Knitting on knitting machine

I’ve been knitting mainly beanie hats recently and feel I’m getting good at it :) Learning to machine knit is such a slow process and I need a lot of patience but finished products make me so happy.

  1. What a great set-up you have here, Hitomi. Is that an 800 series Brother with ribber? What a yarn feed! Sugoi! I am a big fan of knitting machines myself, I have 4, though nothing as professional as this. Nowadays many young women turn their backs on machines. They sew by hand, knit by hand, bake bread by hand etc. etc. I think it is a shame, since the best sewing and knitting machines were always Japanese, and many of them are being sent overseas now. All the best for your wonderful knitted goods.

    • Hi Andrea,

      Yes, it is Brother Palie KH-881 with ribber KR-850 and the colour changer KRC-M1100 feeds 6 colours but I hardly use them all :) I know, it’s a shame that knitting machine is not popular in Japan any more and when I started teaching myself how to machine knit I had to visit websites in America to gather all the information. I simply love the professional look of machine knitted items. Anyway, it was really good to know that you own 4 (!) knitting machines! :)
