For Sale: Knitting carriage for the Singer SK120-SK140 and Bulky Eight

This is the carriage that came with the later 140 needle bed version of the Bulky Eight, and has built in Intarsia, no having to switch carriages when changing over to Intarsia, thus ensuring that your stitch gauge will remain the same.

I will try to get pictures up tomorrow.

If you have the machine with 120 needles, this carriage is a great upgrade for it.  $55 plus postage.  Sorry, sales to US only.  Payment to be made by check or money order.

I am selling my LK-150 Fair Isle Carriage (also works on LK-140), as I no longer have an LK-150 machine. 

Scroll down below the pictures for price and all details.


This slideshow requires JavaScript.

As you can see, it is in excellent condition, comes in the original box.  These are really hard to come by, and I hate to part with it, but now have a metal bed mid-gauge machine, and I won’t be replacing my LK-150, and I would rather it be used for making beautiful Fair Isle garments, afghans, bags, etc., by someone who loves doing fair isle, but is frustrated by how slow it is by hand.  Using this carriage, which carries both yarns at the same time, will get your knitted items finished much faster!  

For the price of $335, which includes shipping anywhere in the USA, you will soon be turning out many lovely gifts and items for yourself and family, and have items that are individual creations, not something that has been been mass produced.

I will accept an USPS money order, or a personal check, money order preferred, and will send an extra gift with the carriage if payment is made by USPS money order.  If payment is made by check, I will mail carriage as soon as it has cleared.

To contact me, or to ask questions, leave a comment (will not be published on blog) using the comment link, and I will get back to you.  Thanks!

Bond USM knitting machines for sale

A friend has her Bond USM knitting machines up on eBay right now, and she started them really cheap, so you have a chance to get a great bargain here.

Check out some of the neat garments, afghans, toys, and lots more that you can make with a Bond USM, at Bond-America.  While you are there, check out the newsletter that you can subscribe to and get in your email box 10-12 times a year.  The newsletter is filled with lots of tips and techniques to try out on the USM, plus it features 1-2 new projects each month.

The latest issue features a very easy sofa pillow to knit, and then gives you several patterns to knit up and embellish the plain pillow you made.  Also includes embroidery designs to add to the mix.

The previous issue features combining fabric with your knitting for a great new look to your fashions, and then gives you a scarf and jacket pattern that combine knitting with fabric.  See all the previous issues here.  I hope this gives hand knitters, and/or those who have always longed to learn to knit, but could never get the hang of using those ‘sticks’, and idea of how much quicker and easier machine knitting is.  Plus, there is knitting clubs all across America that you can join and become a part of the machine knitting fun!  In fact, buy two of them, then you can connect them together to make a full size afghan in one piece!

Do check them out, and if you have been thinking of getting one, here is your chance to get one at a good price, these are a nice way to break into machine knitting.

Looking for stitches scales

I need at least two sets of stitch scales for the Knit Radar KR-6.  I think sets from the earlier versions would probably work also.  I put a picture up on my website of a set of stitch scales so you can see them, perhaps you have some mixed in with machine knitting stuff that you bought, don’t need them, and maybe didn’t even know what they were!

The LK-100 knitting machine has been sold!

It will soon be winging its way across the country to a new owner, who is thrilled to be getting it.

I will soon have more up for sale, a mid gauge, maybe two, and a Bulky Eight (SK-120) and also an SR-120  ribber which fits the machine.

Several others too, so stay tuned!

The LK-100 tutorial is still up though, so if you have one of these machines and need help, check it out here.  LK-100 Tutorial
