It has been a while since Ive posted about knitting. Why? Because Ive been spending a lot of time thinking about directions and production. Ive decided Im an analog girl at heart and the pursuit of fulfilling greater orders with a computerized knitting machine really doesn't help my pursuit of satisfaction and fulfillment in my craft. As a result I'm selling my machines. If you are interested in a gauge 8 Moretto NHF4 with Autocam, a gauge 8 Dubied Intarsia machine, a gauge 5 NHF4 Dubied with Autocam, a DUT Dubied gauge 8, a gauge 10 Dubied N4, or a gauge 7 linker from 1972. Let me know! I am clearing out my studio to focus on my drawing, printing and illustration. What you say? Yes, I trained as a textile designer printing and illustrating (as well as a fashion designer). Knitting was self taught. So I'm gearing my studio towards silk screening, letterpress and hot foil stamping in the future. I think this will be more sustainable for me. For me this is very exciting and I hope to show you the fruits of my labours very shortly! Contact me if you'd like to purchase or trade equipment for any machines or would just like more information.
