Mattel Knitting Machine

I managed to get a 1974 mattel knitting machine from ebay and it works beautifuly. My R.A. has REALLY been bothering me a lot lately and the crank knitter has not been bothering it at all. I’m one of those people who needs to constantly be doing something with my hands (I start to get stressed out if I don’t. Crafting enhances my calm.) and R.A. can slow that down quite a bit. I can see myself using this little cutie a lot. The one I bought still had the pattern book with it, so it was a really lucky find. I’ve been making the “puffs” or “granny circles” that are in the book. They are supposed to be sewn together to make something larger. They are basically a knitted version of the yo yo’s that people make out of cloth.

Blanket Done!

Finally finished! I would have gotten it done a long time ago, but I got frustrated with our pets. They just wouldn’t stay off of it while I was working on it! That made it impossible for me to be able to turn my work when I needed to and that is twice for every row. What I ended up doing was to spend a Saturday at the car lot with my husband and work on it there.
