    My wife tried to take videos of me treadling my 9W-7 but the camera gave her troubles. I'd love to see Miriam treading. All it takes is rhythm.

    Charlee, I have also been making socks. The problem is, by the time I finish one sock I am tired of that yarn and that pattern! The solution is that I am now making 2 socks at a time using a circular set of needles! So much fun to do 2 at a time. When you are done, you are done - both socks completed at the same time! Go to Knit Picks and check it out!

    I haven't decided yet, but leaning toward a case as I am running out of room for cabinets. To all the comments on the yellow Brother-he hasn't arrived yet, I am so excited.
    p.s. I can't get the bobbin case to stay in the aqua kenmore.

    craftiladi,

    Clean the bobbin case pocket thoroughly. Then clean the bobbin case too. Make sure the latch is free to move with the little spring. Then when you put it in make sure it latches before you turn loose of it. I have a couple that are sneaky like that. You think they are in place and two stitches later the case falls out. Oh what frustration.

    new post - old topic but it is so buried on here... I just warmed it over and gave it it's own thread...

    I have also learned how to knit socks, I do them 2 at a time, have made many pair in the last 2 years. Never would finish the second sock till I tried this method, really like it.

    Oh, lucky you! I love Franciscan Desert Rose! I was just talking about learning to knit something more than a dishcloth. I am soooooo slow.

    Thanks for the encouragement on the knitting! I'm (so far) knitting just one at a time, but I can see definite advantages to knitting both at once!

    Lyncat, if *I* can do it, so can you! I'm terribly slow, and I've made a few mistakes, but overall am pretty pleased with this one sock that I've done so far! Give it a try!!
