So my boyfriend recently bought a knitting machine, a SK160, and I have no idea what to make of it. It’s ugly, and takes up a lot of space. At first I thought it was a present for me, seeing as how he said he wanted to surprise me, but it turns out he only wanted to surprise me with a knitted garment- not a machine! :whoosh:
SO, the fact that the machine is not intended for my use combined with its hideous bulkiness really turns me off. There are a lot of disadvantages to it, or so it seems, the main one being that it doesn’t seem to have the freedom that hand knitting does. The only con to hand knitting is that it may be slower. So, what’s the consensus: slow and steady wins the race, or is it time to evolve?
