I was making this for a gift. All was going well until I added another ball of yarn. Could the new ball have been wound too tight? It didn't seem any different as I was knitting and I did not change any settings. I wasn't aware of the difference until I took it off the machine and was admiring my beautiful work.ð Also notice the two tight stitches running down for about 10 inches. I don't see any bent needles. What a disappointment.
I am by far no machine knitting specialist - but for common reasons I would think the new ball was probably just a fraction of a tiny big "fatter"...
Running line, perhaps not a bent needle, but a sticky latch.
I agree, it must have been a gauge issue with the yarn.
Something must have changed as yarn passed through the tension mast at some point. I have had yarn "self-wrap" itself twice around the yarn guide as I was knitting. It's always Something !! Machine knitters have to be constantly on the alert as they knit, watching multiple areas , strangely enough!
But still - easy and fast to frog and re-knit , so don't despair !
