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?https://youtu.be/qryNcMciW_0
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...
No....it 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.
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!
