Getting Used to My Knitting Machine

Craft & Design Yarncraft


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.

    I have a 20 year old toyota knitting machine. Would like to use again, however can’t find sport weight cone yarn. Any suggestions?

    You don’t have to use cone yarn, any center-pull ball will do, try a ball winder! Also, Lion Brand has a machine knitting yarn on a cone that you can order online.

    Thank you for the yarn idea. I’ll try that.

    I am thinking about purchasing a KH-930e, like yours. Which ribber do you have? I can’t seem to find out which ribbers this machine supports.
