    You’ve mentioned using a knitting machine a couple of times and I’m intrigued as I know nothing about them. I love planning and knitting interesting sweaters, but the long slog of stockinette can kill my enthusiasm before I finish a project.

      Yes! It’s especially great for me because I love the design side, and I love the finished jumper, but don’t have as much time for stockinette. I’m gonna do a post about how I’ve been learning and using my machine some time soon.
