Machine knit baby dress.

Jean | Posted in Photo Gallery on

Couldn’t resist posting this. I really miss seeing knitting articles in Threads. This little dress was made on one of my machines.

    Such a charming little girl!  The dress is terrific too.  Does the machine knit in pieces and then you sew together?  Or is there a way to attach each succeeding piece to the one before?  Is there a way to knit a tubular piece or do you have to sew up the seams?  Please....post more pictures.      rjf

    Jean, that's adorable! I was just talking with someone yesterday about machine knitting, and how I'd probably make afghans, but this is much more enticing. Knitted baby clothes are just the cutest.

    How did you get your photo to pop up right in the post? I don't know how to do that!

    That is adorable!  You are enticing me to think about a knitting machine!  I didn't realize you could create such cute things with them.  One more thing for the wish list!

      Thanks all. I was delighted to get the picture and see for myself that it looked cute on. Knitting for kids goes quickly with a machine. It's really fun. This particular dress was made on a Brother 910, a very old machine that knits a rather fine gauge, about 8 sts per inch is a median gauge.  My other machine, Brother KH 240, takes the worsted weight yarns.

      rjf, you can go from one knit pattern to another by manipulating how the stitches go on the machine.  You can knit a tube also, but that prohibits any fancy stitches being done.

      Carole, you upload your picture as always, then click on Preview, Open your picture, Copy it, go back to your message and click Revise, Paste the picture and Post. If you are posting a picture that is already on the net, often just a simple copy and paste will work.

      Most of my knit things were given as gifts so I really don't have a lot of pictures of them being worn. That's why I was so tickled to get this one.

    That is just soooo cute! Wonderful job on the dress. You are a very talented lady.

    Reminds me that I have a knitting machine in a box in a basement cupboard. It hasn't seen the light of day for 10 years. Oh, to have more time at my disposal.... ;-)
