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' ...
