I bought the Singer 150 for $30.00 at the garage sale and thought that I probably would not make much on it if I sold on ebay . Too many fees and pay pal fees as well. So I set this up and wanted to make sure that it was working well. My friend and I made a new sponge bar and off I went. I just casted on 50 stitches and started to knit and then decided to make a stocking. Pretty good for guessing length huh? This is 22 inches long and 6.5 in width. I always wanted to knit the super large stocking that covers the front door but never wanted to spend a lot on the yarn. This little puppy would do the trick with all the yarns at Joanne fabrics that are thick with no dye lots!
This is really thick worsted yarn that I bought and it was hard to work with on my Brother Bulky. I think that is why this is called a Chunky Knitter. It handled it comfortably at tension 7 to 8. It is smaller than my Brother bulky and it fits on the knitting machine table that my bulky is on with no problem. They are back to back. The space between the needles seems to be the same but it seems easier to knit. There are only 108 needles on it and there are 110 on my bulky. This machine is 45 inches long and the brother is 48 inches long.
Sooooo……. the question is, should I keep it or shouldn’t I?
