    I sing Knit It Now’s praises everywhere and am often met with “it’s too expensive”. I ask you, how expensive are drawers full of failed projects? It has been the single biggest factor in my machine knitting success. People also complain there are no modern machine knitting patterns - yes there are! Get your ideas on Ravelry and reverse engineer with a dynamic pattern. Without paying $10 for the pattern!

    I shouldn't have felt embarrassed or ashamed about asking for advice and help.

    I wish someone had encouraged me not to buy that 2nd (3rd, 4th) machine (and all the accessories) before I mastered the first one. ?? I didn't start making progress with my knitting until I put all but 1 machine away and focused on it.
