  • Newbie to machine knitting

    Many years ago I had a bond basic knitting machine and made many items of clothing for the children when they were small. It has been a while but I fancy a new one that maybe does a bit more ie simple lace designs or a bit of intarsia. The problem is I know nothing about the machines available now, the websites are a minefield and no shops in the vicinity where I could get one demonstrated. I am considering second hand but I need some guidance on make, model, the ability to add attachments as I progress and the sort of prices I might be looking at. I have looked at new but the only one I can afford is a silver reed LK150 at £329 at it doesn't look like I can add attachments to it as I master the basics. I would prefer one that will knit 3 ply up to double knit if that is possible.
