Fashion knitwear is hot Hot HOT this season as you might have noticed already. I particularly love the geeky, grandma's knitted jumper look for menswear. Attractive or what?
Anyway, today i went to knit a sample piece myself. However the yarn I picked was too chunky even for the chunky knitting machine, so I had to make do with a finer yarn. I found it fascinating to watch the needles pick up stitches one by one as I dragged the lever from left to right for several hours. Well one hour but it felt like 5. Here is the motion captured through my image.
