I went to the thrift store today. I know, big surprise! And I spied this.
I did a double take. Could it be? It's a Bandai toy knitting machine. This is probably not appealing to real Knitters, but it looks like pure fun to me.
Five minutes after setup I have a wonky little practice swatch in alpaca. Practicing with the quality yarn, huh? The fact that I am again flashing purple yarn may kill my credibility on the whole anti-purple stance, but I swear that this yarn was leftovers from a gift, not for me.
This may be a toy but it really does work. I can see making something rectangular like a scarf or potholder or something simple, but look at the projects on the box. How?
Well it was worth the couple of bucks, and I can always let my 5 year old loose with it, but for now she doesn't know about it and it's just my toy. What the heck am I going to make?
Now if only I could read Japanese...
