Episode 111 - Machine Knitting Demystified



Today I visit Mica Koehlmos and she tells us all about her learning experience of machine knitting and gives us the lowdown on what you need to get started and all that you need to know. 


  • Mica discusses how she got started with knitting machines; casting on and creating fabric
  • comparing machines available today; tools, attachments and set up
  • The importance of finishing; choosing yarn; servicing and resources
  • How machine knitting can occupy a different headspace from hand-knitting and how you can achieve and learn effects in machine knitting which you may not have yet achieved in your hand-knitting
  • and we hit on so much more!


Full shownotes are at KnitBritish and Mica has provided a wealth of info to accompany this episode, which you can find at her website Joy of Thread
