Knitting machine

Today I have been mostly knitting Tangled Yoke. I decided to knit up to where the yoke joins the sleeves, back and fronts toether on the knitting machine. I knew garter rib would be slow without a garter carriage, but it was going okay. I started last Tuesday and I am now on the second sleeve.

Unfortunately, the carriage is sticking loads and really slowing me down, and I'm worried that I'm hurting the machine trying to move it when it doesn't want to. I am so tempted to take it all off the machine and start handknitting from here! But if i could just get it working it is so much quicker.

It is looking good. I would be afraid the tension between the machine and hand would be so different it might cause a problem. Though you are a very neat knitter....interested to see how this works out!
