Hi everyone! For those who don't know me, I am the Fashion & Design Coordinator here at Caron. I work with Cari Clement. (Yeah, the Cari and Carrie thing can get a bit confusing to folks! )
Those of you who are Caron facebook fans know that I just got the Ultimate Sweater Machine. I have never used it before and am not a knitter. My experience with knitting machines is limited to seeing my mother use some super huge industrial looking machine when I was a kid. It had these punchcards for making the designs some how. That thing was scary!
So anyway, in order to prepare for setting up and using the Ultimate Sweater Machine, I watched a bunch of the YouTube videos on it. I managed to get it set up pretty easily! The hardest part was figuring out how the weight went on. Well, actually it was finding the volume control on my computer (lol), but figuring out the weight took me a minute or two!
I set it up at my kitchen table and used the non-slip pad that comes with it. I couldn't clamp it to the table because my table has a lip around the edge. But the non-slip pad seems to hold it just fine.
The YouTube videos were extremely helpful. Now on to the next step - using it! I will let you know how it goes!
