This video caught my attention. Correct me if I'm wrong, But they are using just the lace carriage & the lace punch card? No main Carriage? I see it's a Singer/Studio. And what's that little orange thing they placed on the bed?

Full of questions, aren't i ....well, one more ... Can this work on Brother machines?

Edited: I viewed if again and there's a second orange thing (?cam) on the other end. Lightbulb is starting to flicker In my brain. Hmmm

Oh Marg I for once can answer your Q ....i'm so happy :-)
I have just mastered a lace scarfe on my 260 singer KM . The little oronge cams on either side of the selected working needles are there to make 2 sts and not lace . If you either increase or decrease you move those cams according.
With the singer you only need the lace carriage , I don't think it will work on the Brother .
Perhaps you like to have a look at my post from today ? Greetings to you ,Ose

The orange things are called 'edge pins' and as mentioned previously....are placed between the last 2 stitches on each side of the knitting to knit those stitches....Unlike the Brother lace carriage that only transfers the stitches....the Singer/Studio lace carriage will transfer and knit in the same pass....but it can also just transfer if the yarn is left out of the yarn feeder... cannot be used on a Brother machine...

Ah, darn. Well looks like I'll have to start saving for a Studio/Singer machine. LOL. Seriously. I really liked that video and there are a couple others about the same technique. Will have to read up on them.

Thanks for the info.

It's one of the things where studio/silver reed excells
Allows you to knit lace with motor drive

Hi Marg - I bought a 700 just to do lace with a separate lace carriage. Saves so much more time than the Brother/Knitking as it knits the lace stitches in one pass. The orange cams knit those needles plain - can be moved anywhere on the knitting bed. And no, Brother/Knitking use lace carriages which only transfer stitches - and help build arm muscle!
