    What knitting machine do you have? I’m interested in learning machine knitting, but it’s shockingly hard to find useful information on

      I’ve got a standard gauge machine (knits sport to lace weight yarns comfortably), it’s a Brother KH-881. I was introduced and set up by a friend in-person, so I haven’t gone looking too extensively into the resources online; sorry I don’t have good suggestions on where to find good info.
