A striped scarf made on the Bond knitting machine. Strips are knitted over 10 needles x 300 rows. The strips are knit together with the ‘knit as you go’ method. Simple and fast.
I hate blocking! But … the results are so much better when knit items are pinned and steamed, especially if it is knit in plain stockinette stitch. The problem with stockinette stitch is the rolling of the edges. The only way to get rid of it is to block. So I blocked. It took a gazillion needles to get everything pinned down. Did I mention I hate blocking?

Fair Isle is my favorite knitting technique on the knitting machine. And it shows in this little headband that is sooooo easy to make. Knitted on the Singer SK860 mid-gauge.
