Hello...I've been knitting with needles since i was about 10 years old. I loved that till I got out this machine. Now I love this machine so much, its easy and my projects are done in no time. And since I really dont have much for patience, this is perfect for me. My mom was given the usm for xmas quite a few years ago and only used it once before she was too sick to use it. She past on 8 years ago. Ive learned quite a bit from youtube videos and trial and error. If anyone has any sites with patterns on them for this machine, it would be greatly appreciated if you'd share with me. I hope to be able to add some accessories to this set soon. But for now all i have is the 100 needle bed. I've made hats, scarves, 2 baby sweaters, 1 adult sweater, and 1 mitten (didnt come out they way i wouldve liked so i ripped it out). My next project is going to be socks!!! Wish me luck. I dont have the hanging claw weights yet but i come up with something or another to do the trick. So any tips, tricks, patterns, suggestions are always welcome. Thank you.

I have the Ultimate Sweater Machine too and I got some of the accessories at Joann Stores using their 40-50% off coupons. You can sign up on their website to get their e-mails and they send you the coupons every week. You can also sign up in the store to get their weekly flyers which also include the coupons. I had no idea there were so many ways to use the sweater machine. I prefer hand knitting but one of these days I'll have to set up my machine and try again.

Thank you Clogden21 that helps and is really interesting. Thanks for taking the time to sort and post all that.
You are welcome, it does make it easier when it is sorted. sometimes I just do not want to fish through all kinds of links to get to a particular project i.e. knitting, crocheting, or what ever.

For more homework about the Bond knitting machine check-out this: Marrowstone,by Cheryl Brunnett. She gives lessons about using the bond. And she shows all the sweaters that she and her students made. Hope this helps. Mai :roll:
