Last week was a terrible week…

I’m praying this one is much better.  It has to be, I don’t think I could stand two of them in a row.  It seemed like everything went wrong last week, and I had to keep reminding myself, “This too, shall pass.” just to keep from totally losing it.

I’ve been trying to sell some stuff, so I can get a car on the road, and be able to get to the doctor and dentist, but its not going well at all.  Not sure which way to turn now, guess I will have to dig out more items to try to sell.

Too make matters worse, we’ve been having more thunderstorms, and the barometer has been going crazy, and I’m in the middle of a big fibro flare, took me three tries just to get out of bed this morning, and my knees have been giving me fits, and I’ve almost fallen a dozen times today.

I’m up much too late, need to get to bed, have to get up early and finish up some things I started working on last week.

Will be listing more machine knitting things soon, so if you are looking for anything, keep watch to see what turns up.

Going to go to bed now, hopefully things will look brighter in the morning.

LK-100 bulky 9mm knitting machine for sale

The LK100 is a marvelous machine that accepts many different yarns, knitting them all with ease, and you can use bulky yarns with it. It is like new, and comes with a new sponge, ready to knit with when it arrives, just remove from box, set it up, add yarn and start knitting! If you spin your own yarns, and would like to knit them up quickly, then this is the machine for you.  It is a heavy duty plastic bed machine, very durable, and great to take to guild meetings, shows, and anywhere else you might like to sit and knit.  It will also come with a DVD showing you how to get started on it, plus take you through the steps of knitting a sweater.  $150.00 plus postage.

I also have a 37 needle section of this machine that includes sponge and cast on comb for $55.00 plus shipping, this will enable a person to make much larger items on their LK100.

I take checks, and USPS money orders in the USA. I will need your zip code to calculate shipping. 

Outside the US, I can only take PayPal. Contact me for further information.

I did my first fashion lace!

Only took me six tries, kept forgetting to change the cam lever…and lace was really coming down!  But, I persevered and I did one small piece, and it was perfect!

It was so much fun after I got the hang of it!

I did it on my Singer SK560 using 2/28 (I think) acrylic yarn. Now I’m going to do some plain lace with the carriage.

My first fashion lace with the lace carriage!
