Went to pick up my first birthday present on Sunday.
I am really excited to give it a go, this machine is actually older than me so it might need a little bit of tlc before I get started. Plus to be fair I have never even seen a knitting machine in use so I may have to dedicate a whole weekend to working it out (using youtube).
I don't think it will ever pursude me to stop handknitting though - it just isn't quite so portable. It does seem a little bit like cheating!
