HK 100 8 mm Knitting Machine
This little machine is just the greatest. It is portable so that makes it very useful for me when I want to knit out on the deck or take to Knit Club. It is a very basic machine but does have a great tension dial on the carriage. The yarn sits on the floor in front of the machine but that really doesn't bother me. I have knit several projects on the HK 100. One of my favorites is my Color Block Afghan that used up a lot of odds and sods of yarn and created a lovely blanket as well as a lap robe.
This is the Color Block Afghan
This is a Square Afghan that could be used as a lap robe or
just a cozy blanket for toddlers to play on the floor
The squares are done in panels separated by rows of a contrast border color. I joined the panels by knitting a strip of the contrast border color and at the same time joining the panels to it using the "Sew As You Go" technique. Worked up quickly and used up a lot of yarn I would have ignored because there wasn't enough to make anything with!
