I love you! I just was admiring someone's braided scarf the other day and I didn't even think of that when I got this! I think I will make that for my bf's mom for Christmas! It will be so quick!

My aunt gave me one of those things, only mine isn't so, uh, sassy-looking.  It only makes tubes though.  I'm thinking skinny striped scarves too; there's not much else.

  Grin I think you ought to make me one too for the suggestion LOL

I've just been looking at the toy knitting machines on google. I REALLY want a mechanical french knitter that knits dounle knit and/chunky yarns. I have the Inox one which is disappointing to say the least  Undecided  I didn't know before I bought it that it uses only 3 or 4 ply yarns.

I have the Sew Easy machine. I have to admit I was so excited I sped through the set up and only glanced at the instructions, so I'm not sure if I'm using it right. But if you're patient with it it's actually pretty fun. It knits at a loose gauge but the size tube it makes is perfect for arm warmers or sock cuffs. Fingering or sock yarn works but you have to watch it because it's likely to drop stitches. I haven't made anything except practice tubes yet but it's fun to play with.

That looks so great--has anyone tried any of the other "toy" machines currently on the market? I was eyeing this:

I can't link to the one on mary maxim, but it's called the adult knitting machine:

The first one looks very similar to what I have. However I have heard it breaks but if you read hte instuctions and take good care of it I dont think it will. The person who broke thiers described the problem and I think the kept crnking when they weren't supposed to. My machine clicks when the tension is to tight and stopps knitting. And I think they kept turning the handle.

I have a singer too and I really like it. Are you enjoying yours? I hope to eventually make some really fun stuff like armwarmers and things.
