Knitting Lace

Last week's lesson was on knitting lace. Only problem I don't own a Brother knitting machine. My machines don't have lace carriages. BUT I really enjoyed watching the demonstration. This machine I was told is a Brother 910. It had a handy dandy electronic device that helped set up the lace patterns. It would then tell you how many times the lace carriage needed to pass before using the regular carriage.

We chose different patterns and worked with Becky's machine.  She use to own a machine knitting shop up until 1998.  And to think I moved here in 1990.  I could have been machine knitting for 8 years!  I had just never heard of machine knitting at the time. 

Becky wanted to demonstrate a quick and easy project for gifts.  After trying her machine I could see how easy it would be to crank out a table runner and 4 place mats on a Brother 910.
