March 2015

A new visitor to the meeting prompted a round the table discussion about the number and variety of machines we have between us.

Plating was the topic of the month. Valerie talked about the technical side of two yarns, one through the plating feeder and the other through the main bed or the ribber. For those that do not know, one yarn knits behind the other so it gives the effect of lining the main yarn.

Samples were passed around to see the textures and look of the knitting.
