Machine Knitting Podcast

I just happened upon this podcast through things I like on Instagram.  I really enjoyed listening to it.  It felt like an afternoon with machine knitting friends. 

It is geared for Britain, but there is still a lot of good info for anyone starting out.  Mica has a lot of good tips on how to get started machine knitting.  Where to find a machine.  What machine is good to start with.  How to find like minded friends. Where to find classes. I found it inspiring to do more machine knitting in the new year.

Mica's webpage Joy of Thread also has links to info in the podcast.

And FYI... I met Susan Guagliumi at a MK class and I asked her how to pronounce her name.  I wrote it down on the notepad in my phone, so I wouldn't forget.

Susan Guagliumi pronounciation: Susan "Guaw U Me"

Img2track Cable is in the House

I've been wanting to play around with hooking my computer to my Brother 930 for years.  I finally have an up to date computer and I bought a cord to do this.  I have 60 stitches to play around with and see if I can get it working.  When I get it working I can buy a key from the makers of the cord DaviWorks to increase the width to 200 needles.

I've added a link section to the blog for "img2track" useful sites and info.
