It is a very creative craft, which can give hours of satisfaction, not least from clothing yourself and your family cheaply and in the way you like.

Once you have started you will possibly be surprised to find that you don't need them. Machine knitting ladies tend to be much less pattern- reliant than their hand,knitting sisters, perhaps because mistakes cost less and are over more quickly. But, to start with, your best source of patterns is probably the machine knitting magazines, which are a cheap way of buying patterns and have lots of other tips, hints and articles in too. Or buy specialist patterns from your machine stockist. more follows > Home File Index 480 What's New 481 Sewing Your Money Time Off Adverts
