Well, the results are in.  I have Diverticulitis.  Isn't that a mouthfull to say. 😐  But it's treatable with plenty of rest and LOTS of pills.  BIG pills. LOL.

Did manage to work for a few minutes on the Brother KX390 knitter with both the 390 and 400 carriages.  Tried some chenille yarns and some knitweave.  Not particularly thrilled at the outcome.  It's a very lightweight fabric and soft but I had the wrong color combinations and yarn weights.  

One was an 800 YPP in Balsam Green, another was Placid Blue 1195 YPP.  They knit beautifully.  It was the secondary  weights / colors that just didn't work.   One was Tawny Oak at 2100 YPP another was a red-ish at about the same YPP.  They were too thin for the bulky mode to really show up much when doing EOR knitweave.  Perhaps SLIP / SKIP would have been better on every row.  Or tuck ... love doing tuck!!

Ah well, will try some different things next time I can sit at the machine for any length of time.

Keep on knittin' ...
