This is not a blog, just a scrapbook of ideas, techniques and information I have found useful. Some of these are, so far as I know, original, whilst others have been adapted from various sources. Thank you to all the kind people who put their experience and know-how into blogs and you-tube videos, you have helped me so much. I have tried to acknowledge you here.

Fish hook weight for machine knitting
This is just a large fish hook with the barb rubbed off, tied to a 1 oz. weight with fishing line. It's brilliant for slipping very accurately between stitches, even on the row just knitted, and it never gets caught in the carriage.
