Floriade. Blooms, devonshire tea, giant fish, victory garden, chilli tastings, more blooms, lunch then home.
Toyota KS 787 knitting machine. Carrie was feeling very positive about the challenge and even brought over some knitting projects to finish off once we got the thing working. Armed with instruction booklet, a couple of dozen bits and pieces and a refreshing glass of water each, we sat in the sunshine and tackled this little monster. First go - great! It seemed to work. Sort of. For two rows. Try as we might, even dashing inside intermittently to check various you tube videos, we could not replicate our first attempt. Eventually, we gave up, made a pot of tea and took out our crochet instead. However, I have since found a better manual online, I did order a missing piece from ebay, I plan to watch every online video I can find and This Little Monster will sit on my coffee table until I master it.
In sewing news, I will be gathering up all the already-cut pieces for my yellow top and cutting out one pair of boxers tonight. Ready for a double dose of sewing tomorrow.
