Well I checked my posting history and I have never posted any of my machine knitting...shame!! I'll post some of them, one at a time. Wink

So here was my first Bond machine intarsia project - and it was a doozy lol. I got the design from a knitting book called Popeye and Friends (all King Features characters - I have to make the Haagar the Horrible sweater sometime!). I didn't use the actual dress pattern they gave though as it was for a skinny person, so I basically made a long sweater. So, that would be why it looks like a long sweater. Wink Anyways I made this about two years ago. (Btw if this is wrong section I'm sorry, I didn't see a section just for machine knitting.) Ignore the binder clips at the bottom, I was trying to uncurl the hem. I have since taking this photo changed the sleeves to short, its nicer to wear now.

Thanks everyone, and sorry, no photo of me in it. Smiley This is the only thing I made from someone else's pattern, the rest are original.

I love it.  Its sooo cute.  I would also love to see more of you machine knitting.  I also machine knit but NEVER intarsia--although now this makes me want to try.   

It takes getting used to, and a few helpful tools. I could give you tips if you need 'em. Smiley
