Didn't get home early (we went into Brum for a Wagamama's - white chocolate and ginger cheesecake, mmmm!), but had a bit of a play on the electronic. Fair-isle is easy, as long as you give it time to refeed the pattern. Tuck took a few attempts before I realised I had to select negative patterning and get it to read the right pattern. Slip looks really great. Weaving? Not so keen - on my Brother the needles are preselected, allowing you to lay the weaving yarn over the needles. On the Silver Reed, you have to slip it behind a wire guard, which is not nearly as fast.
I want to try lace tonight! :)
