Today I worked on making 2X2 ribbing using Diana's video and the book that came with my machine.
I did some very nice swatches. Making sure all the buttons and levers are pushed in the correct directions can be a challenge. I kept trying to get my zig zag row and it wasn't happening. So, again I'd go over the chart. It seemed as careful as I thought I was something would be out of place. Finally, I swiped the carriage and a beautiful zig zig row was formed.
Something I that had been ingrained in my brain from watching Diana's ribber videos was to make sure the needles didn't collide. I was very proud of myself when I knew to turn my ribber from P to H without any prompting.
