I am happy with my T Time. Just a few hours on the machine and I am wearing a new top.
Pattern: T Time
Yarn: Cotton Tweed by Cabin Fever
Tension: Stitch Dial - 4, Upper Tension -7.
Modifications: I shortened the sleeves from the suggested 3/4 length to elbow length. More appropriate for summer wear, I thought. And, I lengthened the lower portion so my overall Tee is 22 inches long.
What Did I Learn?
Sideways knitting looks quite attractive - especially when offset by contrasting, vertical knitting.
The sideways knit with it's boat neck shaping required no edging. The slight, under curl at the neck provides just the right amount of neck shaping to make the Tee comfortable to wear.
The pattern of 5 needles working, one needle not working creates a 'rib' like look and also means no curling at the lower edges.
T Time would make a lovely winter pullover. Knit in wool, with the longer sleeves, it would be a perfect candidate for self striping yarns, like Noro, Marble or any sock yarn. And - it is done before dinner. My favourite thing.
That looks lovely, Brenda! Amazing about the time savings.
I'm totally impressed. This is a wonderful sweater. I'm going to a machine knitting class at the Haliburton School of Fine Arts and hope I am as successful as you have been.
That is great looking! I love the cool simplicity of it and the graphic quality of the two directions. It also very nicely shows off that great necklace!
I really like that sweater. I wish I had a pattern for it that was hand knit since I don't have a machine. Must try to find one on the internet.
I might use this kind of thinking for the rest of that darn Domino yarn. Machine it!
now I have to find yarn to make this - it's really lovely, and will get me back to my machine...
I love it. I thought you picked up the sts from the yoke and knit downwards--was surprised to read that you seamed. I have agreed to give a machine workshop at a weekend retreat later in summer. I'm nervous--know how to do stuff, but don't know if I can teach it. I'm doing it for free (sort of--food and accommodations), so we'll see how it goes.
I also love the ribbed look of unworked stitch.
Great job. Love it.
I'm working on the Master Knitter Program (hand knit), but am tempted to take the machine program when I'm done.
So pretty and so awesome that bit is done in a few hours!
