When you open a knitting machine it does look like Spock's brain at first. Don't be discourage. Read the instruction manual, join a guild, check out support groups on Ravelry. There is help starting here.

Hook, Line and Sinker!
Remember my evil machine knitting plan I discussed in a previous post. I didn't know how well my plan to interest teenagers in machine knitting was going to work until 3 days later. My daughter's friend came over and asked if she could make another hat. After I said, "Bwah ha ha ha ha" under my breath we got her set up and off she went knitting her 2nd hat. While running the carriage back and forth she said, "I love machine knitting. Some day I want a machine of my own." I nearly fainted with joy.
My daughter modeling her friend's "Happy Hat." Since the hats were going to siblings we made this one slightly different with a rolled brim.
I'm married with children and a rotten stinkin poodle as we affectionately call her. I love to spend time with my now college student children, scruffling my poodle, crafting, cooking, listening to books on my mp3 player and working out at the gym.
