I have not been able to blog the past two weeks due to a hideous cold/flu that got me. Feeling so much better now so, I am back.
Machine Knitting Monthly has my contact details listed in the "Knitting Buddies" column and I receive lots of email from knitters all over the world. It is amazing that so many machine knitters who own an electronic/computerized knitting machine do not have them plugged into a surge protector! It is an inexpensive item that can protect your valuable investment from power surges. I strongly suggest you plug into one. Another good idea is to simply unplug your machine when not in use.
Hoping by the end of the day to post my pattern and photos of a Gun Mitten I have designed for machine knitters, this is a quick and very nice gift idea for the guy(s) in your life.
