Lovely poodle. I looked at some of the vintage patterns, there is even a ladies knitted swim suit. Not sure how practical that would be. I remember my brother having some knitted trunks when we were kids and they just fell down with the weight of the water. Fun times eh!!!!!!!!!!!

yes if the yarn is too thick then the cast on will be difficult. I don't know what guage your machines are so can't comment.

I have had a look on its gone now which was a shame. If I see anything useful up your way I will let you know.
Let us know how you get on with your machine.

or any old cotton sheets/dresses etc cut into strips would work fine.

sounds like you need to change the tension dial on the tension mast to prevent the problems of looping or being too tight.

I get this occasionally. Try more weights or sometimes depending on the yarn and ribbing set up used you may need less weights. I just check now that all the needles have knit properly and if not I do them by hand. It's usually the circular rows or the first proper row so I just check these.

I wouldn't do the ewrap to get started. Use waste knitting and a cast on cord or comb and maybe do a hem. I've been machine knitting for years and always avoid the ewrap has it always gave m problems. I have a ribber so always cast on with this usually or as I say use waste knitting and so a hem.

I haven't owned either of these machines but from experience I would say go for a punchcard machine at least if not an electronic it opens so many more knitting possibilities and they are reasonably priced on eBay.

definitely go for a metal bed punchcard machine, reasonably priced on ebay and well worth it.

Just bought one at Christmas and its brilliant. I have a standard gauge and have been machine knitting for years but this is my first chunky. I have managed to get a ribber for it as well off eBay. You will like it.

I played around with felting some pure wool that I had braided. My lurcher found it really easy to bite through so it wasn't successful. What I do now is braid fleece fabric into a 4 strand braid tuggy toy and this works really well. I don't think wool is tough enough for doggy teeth.
