As luck would have it, I was out on a treasure hunt on Tuesday and what did I spy? But none other than a Singer 561 knitting machine. It's basic but I thought this was definitely a must have. I already have a computerized machine but thought this would be cool to have kicking around to do some very basic stuff with and the price made me feel as though I had just robbed the store. So when I got home I immediately tried it and it works great and I bought an intarsia carriage for $30.00 off of the internet. So I was really pumped up about this find until I started hand knitting the stocking later that evening.
I looked and looked and I could have bet on the fact that I saw a post recently on how to combat curling edges but do you think I could find that now? Also do you see the curvature going on there? What in the world am I doing wrong? I know it has been awhile since I have hand knit but this is pathetic! No I did not swatch and somehow I wish I had. It all looked so pretty in my mind. Somebody got any advice? Please do not say "You should have swatched." because I will say "Frog it" and do it on the machine.. :-(
