Hand-Manipulated Stitches for Machine Knitters

The Very First HMS Video

I decided it would be fun for the first post on this new blog to start with a clip from the video that was produced to accompany the book, Hand-Manipulated Stitches for Machine Knitters back in 1990. I have to say that it is kind of strange seeing myself as a 30-something on the screen and then facing 60-something me in the mirror! Enjoy this younger version because the videos I have planned for future posts will certainly feature a more mature version of Susan!

    Welcome to Blogland, Susan!
    I’ve missed you and I’ve missed machine knitting for some years.
    Bridging is one of my favorite techniques, high among the those which persuade a flat knitting machine to produce complex three dimensional shapes.
    Awaiting news of your current adventures…

      Thanks, Jo! We are still tweaking details – like the blog sign up – but I am looking forward to blogging as often as I can.

      Thanks, Michele. I’m really excited about the possibilities!

    OH, what fun! I’m working on my LK150 tonight making one of the scarves from the Craftsy class. Thank you for doing Crafty class! Perhaps there will be more in the future!

    I’ll take learning at your feet 30 years later without hesitation. Keep it coming and thank you for some of the most clever contributions to the industry.

    Great video! I didn’t think it dated at all!

      Ha! Flattery will get yoou everything! Thanks for the nice words!

    I found your video of the DL1000 Linker. Besides being very informative, it’s interesting to watch the mannerisms that are still with you. Always so professional! Thanks!
