NEW! October Video - Lattice Lace on the Silver Reed (Studio) Machine


I get lots of requests for Silver Reed videos, so here's one!  This pretty lacy ripple is something I first did, long ago, on the Brother machine, then the Toyota machine, and now, here it is on the Studio.  What makes it ripple is the slant of the transferred stitches.  You don't need to block or force the ripple to happen; it's integral to the stitch structure.

While I have not had any success doing the automatic scalloped edges on the Studio, it does a wonderful job knitting lace.  The way it transfers stitches and knits all in one pass, it zips out lace FAST!  Here's an old favorite lace pattern for the many situations where you want all-over laciness.

By the way, the way this is punched and the way the needles are arranged (do full repeats of 24, please) you won't need to worry about edge stitches. 

SEMINAR THIS MONTH:  Say, have you been thinking about the Asheville, North Carolina seminar?   Get registered, if you want to come.  I promise you two days of packed lessons, a little basic, a little advanced, something for everyone.  Here's that website:
