I'll have to see if I can find the box I put mine in, the booklet I had has some different stitch patterns in it. If I can find it I'll PM them to you.

Mine too. It has a lot of beautiful stitch patterns but I want actual patterns for different things not stitch patterns. I don't know what to use those stitch patterns for.

I actually have one of those, mine came with a booklet that showed how to make different stitches. It was fun to play with, I haven't had it out for years but I did make a few blankets on it. The only down side is the same as my knitting machines, not portable. One helpful hint, use clothes pins with some big washers tied to them as weights, it helps with the bottom curling up.

The booklet came with mine too. It only has a pattern for a sweater. It does however have stitch patterns which don't really help me a lot.

Is it a straight loom?

Yes it's a straight comb like thing with finer needles than the round looms. It attaches to the table. I posted a picture.

They are very much like a loom, so maybe check some of those patterns.

Most of the loom patterns are in the round with a much looser gauge. They won't do. I don't like the fabric that comes out of the looms.

I've been looking at this machine to buy. I will wait for a 50 or 60% off coupon first though. I have seen many videos and it looks like fun. It also can make I-cords with bulky and worsted weight yarns.

I got a 60% off coupon last week and paid less than $30! I love it. I have used Wool of the Andes from Knit Picks and it works great. I haven't had any dropped stitches but I have had skipped stitches. I don't know what causes those.

It does look interesting. I would like to see how it works. Guess I will have to look on u-tube.

It's really simple. I just got it today and I'm already knitting on it. I received a Knit Quick knitting Machine as a present this week too. I have a lot of learning to do. I like knitting by hand but these little machines can be fun and useful too.

I bought a knitting Pal on Amazon because it looked interesting and it was only $18! I figured I could make some knitting blanks for dyeing yarn since a knitting blank costs around $20 each! Has anyone heard of this machine before? If so, anyone know of any patterns made for it? I have watched YouTube videos about this machine but they only show how to use it. It looks interesting though, don't you think?

Thank you, Marge, for your reply.

As you said, Michael's does carry both the Knit Quick Knitting Machine and the Knit Quick Loom, but what I purchased and had questions about was the knitting machine. Attached is a picture of what I bought along with the box it came in. I'm also attaching pictures of successful (no dropped stitches) baby hats I knitted and another pic that is a work-in-progress.
Thanks again for all the replies and helpful hints!
P.S. Go to YouTube and the Sheepishly Sharing site to view a great review of the Knit Quick Knitting Machine!

The reason I asked is because I found an item on Ravelry that calls for sport weight yarn. I have 4 skeins of DK Paintbox Yarns and was wondering if I could use them. I will, as some of you have suggested, do a swatch and check. Thank you for your comments. I love this site.

Is there a difference for knitting with Sport Yarn and DK weight yarn. They both seem the same to me.

My grandkids got M&Ms in tubes for Christmas. I had not bought a ball winder yet so I used the empty M&M tube for winding a ball of yarn. I was keeping it in project bag when it occurred to me that this little tube could also be used to carry odds and ends needed for knitting. I put my folding scissors, tapestry needles, stitch markers, cable needles, tape measure, crochet hooks (for picking up drop stitches), and even DPNs in this tube. Kept everything neat and easy to find in my bag!

Now that I have bought myself a lacis Ball Winder I still use the tube for winding center pull mini skeins.
