I've also managed some machine knitting using the garter carriage and my Silver reed 860 Mid Gauge.
I finished today a pair of Monster Pants for age 6-9 months from a pattern i adapted using Designaknit from Ravelry. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/machine-knit-baby-monster-pants
They were knitted at Tension 5* using Stylecraft Double Knitting yarn in various colours.
I've also been sewing, I do find the television programme Sewing Bee very inspiring and here's what I've been up to.
Fabric was purchased from a stitch and craft show that was held in Exeter last September.
The Garter carriage Slipover/Vest was knitted for my 91 year old Dad, I've made him loads of these with different stitch patterns as he loves wearing them.
Hand knitting a babies sweater at the present with a great garter stitch pattern which I will adapt for the knitting machine as I can see that I will use this one again.
