I'd like to pop in here and say I'd like a machine knit section too.
I've got a brother machine (in fact, I have 2, but one is up and running- permanently in the lounge, the other needs some tlc)
I am just learning to use it, and I am due to attempt my first project on it tomorrow. It's only a plain back for a cushion, but it's a start.
Someone asked about where to find patterns. I've found it really hard to find them online, the best way to find them is going through the book section at charity shops, but don't expect anything funky, it will probably be hideous 1980's creations!!
