Machknit Day 31July10

Yesterday was a great day at Epping, NSW, for the NSW Machknit group. They have one every year and this one was my first visit.

Bev instructed us on refurbishing a sponge bar for the Japanese machines and later how to dissassemble one to clean and refurbish.

Singer/Silver Reed and Brother standard machines were set up to show various techniques, a Brother garter carriage was chugging away, a Hague linker showing it's clever joining abilities and I was doing a demo of socks on a pinky Passap and daughter was showing how the simple KX350 mid gauge worked.

There was also free and for sale yarns, magazines, and all sorts of doo dads.
