I recently set up my Brother KH-930E knitting machine with its ribbing attachment, and here it is spitting out a long scarf, followed by a picture of another scarf I made today. We’ve had some tricky times together, but I’m finally wielding this 20 year-old machine with fury. Rawr! With the ribber, I can knit all kinds of ribbing, racking patterns, and even tubes (my personal favorite). Check out more photos tagged with “knitting machine” in my Flickr.
