How's the blanket coming along? I'm rubbish - I've not even opened the lid on mine in a good six months  Roll Eyes

I need to get going again tho - a friend called this morning to say that she'd got me TWO more machines from a neighbour who's moving house  Shocked Grin  They're both Brothers - a KX360 and a KH860. I think the 360 is a very old model - I can't find anything about it on the web. But the 860 looks like it should be good!

The only thing is, neither of them has the manual...  Roll Eyes Shocked Undecided

I have the 860 and it's a gem! The neighbor just GAVE them to you? Lucky you!

You can download most of the Brother manuals for free from Brother Canada: http://ftp://ftp.brother.ca/ENGLISH/KNITTINGMACHINE/

I am feeling very lucky indeed today  Grin

DBF - I've tried all afternoon and evening to get that link to work with no luck - the main Brother site in Canada doesn't have any listings for knitting machine manuals. Have you managed to get it work before now? Using your link I get a list of pdf files but it refuses to actually download anything  Huh

I was hoping that it would be similar to my Knitmaster, but going by pictures from eBay, it's laid out differently. I foresee many long evenings ahead...  Grin

It's an FTP rather than a website, so it may load as a volume on your desktop. The direct link for the KH860 manual is http://ftp://ftp.brother.ca/ENGLISH/KNITTINGMACHINE/KH860-UG.pdf

I'm very new to machine knitting. I just scored a brand new (as far as I can tell it has never been used and still has it's box and everything sealed) Ultimate Sweater Machine while I was shopping in the Salvation Army for a whopping $10. Shocked <---That's exactly what my face did when I saw it and the price. I snatched it up and merrily went on my way.

I can't wait to learn how to use it. It even has the dvd with it. I'm sure one of my first projects will be a blanket for my friend who is expecting in January.

My mother bought me a knitmaster 600 knitting machine with a ribber in Febuary  Grin,, i think its the same as the 700 only it doesnt have the built in knit radar.
Its taken me a while to get used to it and am still learning,
I have knitted so far ..a  fair isle scarf, two pull overs, 1 sweater and a pair of socks  Cool,,

You will find loads of machine knitting videos on youtube by http://www.youtube.com/susyranner

and i didnt realise so many people had knitting machines on here!,, id love to see more people post about them and show what theyve made Smiley
