Do people up here get together for stitch n bitches or other crafty get togethers?

Yeah, there are several. The only one I can remember right now is the TKGA local chapter, Knitters of the North. I'm away at grad school, so I'm not sure where they're currently having their stitch 'n bitches, but I don't think you have to be a member to join in.

I haven't seen one of these before, but I do know about other types of knitting machines. Are you using yarn within the recommend thickness ranges? One of the mistakes a lot of people make with knitting machines is trying to use yarn too thick for that particular machine.

Nice job!

Whenever you do multiple colors, that area's not going to be as stretchy as the single-color areas.

I always counter with, "I don't have the patience NOT to knit." It's true, too. I don't have the patience to sit there doing nothing.

Hi mooshie, try reading this Knitter's Review article. It tells a lot about different types of machines and what they can do.

Hi Kookaloo, welcome back to machine knitting! Smiley

I put together an index of free machine knitting patterns (like Knitting Pattern Central but for machine knit patterns). Now steelbreeze and I maintain it together at http://www.needlesofsteel.org.uk/ - you'll find lots of free patterns and techniques there. Hope it helps!

At least the color changes I zoomed in on were not seamed together. They were definitely just a change in the working yarn.

MACHINE knit? awww mann.

Like every other sweater at UO, yes.  Wink

It's a basic tuck stitch, which is essentially leaving a stitch on the needle for several rows without knitting it. Then when you do knit it, there are several strings of yarn - the long piece of yarn between the knitted stitches on each side of the tuck - that all get knitting at once. That's what makes the stitch look like several threads are branching out from it.

If I can think of a way to do it by hand, I'll let you know, but I think it's one of the techniques that's basic on a machine but more difficult by hand.

To me, it looks like it was all done in one piece, just changing the yarn color where necessary.

It's hard to tell details, but it looks like a machine-knit tuck pattern. I'm not sure the best way to do that by hand.
