A good friend came up with this brilliant technique for making fan lace on looms. The lace involves NO transferring of stitches and is just lovely. For loom knitting books and patterns visit http://www.theanswerlady.com/loomknittingpatternsbooks.html

We all make mistakes occasionally. Fixing them without tears is the issue. My friend Edith came up with this great method for fixing a mistake that occurred across the whole row several rows back. The area must still be re-knitted but her method preserves the remainder of the work safely.

Some of us, including me, find packing and unpacking machines a pain. Jack explains it clearly in this video to save our nerves.Though we are using a vintage machine the job is very similar for many models. visit us for more great stuff at httpL//www.theanswerlady.com

This is a recently restored KH587 machine. It is the same as a KH588 but with Japanese markings rather than English. In this video we work on making slip stitch and tuck stitch. This machine has a unique way of accomplishing it! This is part of an entire series on these fascinating 8 button machines. Any of the standard gauge pattern books from http://www.theanswerlady.com may be used on these machines.

Here's a refurbished G-carriage ready to go home. This one is an older model, the KG89 but it's a good performer. We test each carriage extensively before sending it back and that's what's happening here. See our whole video index and other things for machine knitters at http://www.theanswerlady.com

Whenever we repair a machine, we then video it in service. This is mainly of interest to its owner but some others like to see them in action so here it is. For our complete video index and great MK patterns, visit http://www.theanswerlady..com
