I have a like-new 9mm, Bulky knitting machine with new sponge strip for sale. It uses hand knitting yarn. I would like $150 for it which includes UPS Ground shipping & insurance. I am in Parker, Colorado. If you want to pick it up, the sale price will be $130. Please PM me if you want pictures. Thank you.
I was a machine knitter for almost 20 years... loved my Passap the best, but Studio, and Brother came in next! Had to give them up because of various reasons, but I miss them all.! Hope you sell your bulky soon. There have to be Machine Knitters out there.
I have a Passap Duo80, Toyota KS950, Singer HK100, Brother KH260 & KX350. I love them all. I have been machine knitting for about 2 years. I also enjoy hand knitting & crochet. Thanks & have a great day!

Siewclark: I would like to buy my first machine, which one do you recommend since you have several of them which u probably use for diff things. If you could enlighten me as to what machine does what and which one you started with, it would be so appreciated. Thank you so much in advance.
My first machine was a Singer, 4.5mm. It drove me nuts using thin yarn. Correcting mistakes were tedious; like dropped stitches, yarn tangled up. Later I got a Singer HK100, 8mm which uses hand knitting yarn. I am at ease with it. It is easier to handle the worsted weight yarn. Correcting mistakes aren't so bad. Then I have the LK100, 9mm which knits like butter because its needles have rollers. Its carriage glides easily. My friend had this machine too but she sold it. She didn't have the patient to learn the basic things. After that, I bought a KH260, 9mm which has punchcards patterning. The LK100 is a very basic machine. If you want patterns, you have to hand-manipulate the stitches. Don't know why I got a Bond, 8mm which drove me nuts. I couldn't do cast-on with the plastic hem. I am impatient to learn it. I think after having the LK100, HK100 & KX350, I am spoilt. I am sorry I am not articulate enough. Hope this help.
Please email me the pictures and some information. Does it knit with worsted weight yarn?
I have one knits with thin yarn and it drives me nut.
