In December 2014, I finally got something for myself I have wanted for a couple of years. The 'magical' Addi Express knitting machine.
I've always wanted a knitting machine but they are sooo expensive. The Addi will knit in the round OR back and forth for flat items.
These are some of the hats I made for my family and friends for Christmas. It takes me about an hour to finish one. The yarn on the left shows the way the variegated yarn looks before knitting.
And here are a few, some plain yarn and some also variegated. I really love the brilliant colors.
This grey on on the right of this page is my favorite. I knit it for my mother. The yarn is a little bit thicker and makes a much denser hat.
I've been knitting them double, they are actually reversible and if I do a different color about half way, you could conceivably have two hats in one.
If anyone wants information on this machine there's a sweet lady named Margaret on YouTube that has some great videos.
