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.
