This is my new-to-me Toyota knitting machine (a KS858). I put it through its paces on Sunday.
It is a 12 st punchcard machine and also has 12 buttons. Unfortunately, buttons 9-12 are a little dodgy, and like to deselect themselves. It's got a brand-new Brother sponge bar in (couldn't get a Knitmaster bar) and it was a very tight fit, so it won't be coming out again in a hurry. Am keeping the original bar though for reference - it is narrower.
Not sure how you would pattern on this machine once the ribber was in place, as the patterning lever would hit the ribber.
Been a bit slack lately in photographing finished projects, here for your delight and delectation a pair of handknitted socks in Regia Pompon:
They are a bit sloppy, but great for around the house, and very cosy.
Current mood: happy
