Elephants, fixed

The row tripper was up! On the chunky machine, the knitleader has to trip twice per row! Otherwise, double-length knitting! I did noticed I'd used rather a lot of yarn for just one front. Doh!

I have made two fronts and a back already. Woohoo! So much faster than handknitting them!

Yes, faster, nicer but can machine knitting really give you that in depth practice of seldom used vulgar expressions? :-)

Hello! I just was reading an old thread on LJ that you replied to:

You told someone that you don't use the hem on the knitting machine anymore and just do an e-wrap cast on. I wondered if you have any trouble with the work not being weighed down?
