I'm at my favorite second hand boutique and just as I was leaving I saw it , a knitting machine. Now I have a Bond "Incredible Sweater Machine" that, in all fairness has provided me with many afternoons of entertainment and lots of blanks to dye and re-knit. If you don't know about this fanciful idea check out how cool it is here
But this machine, the thrift store one looks like a winner it has a little yarn tension antennae and a big carriage. It's a Singer LK100 and I find out that "Singer" and "Studio" are synonymous in K.M. land and that 30 bucks for an used one is good. I take it out and start playing with it- What a hoot, in 10 minutes I have a piece of stockinette large enough to be a baby blanket.
