Make Sentro Addi Knitting Machine hat and Cordy icord maker tool embellishment

I made a couple hats on my Sentro circular knitting machine.  Then, for embellishment, I knit some icord using the Cordy icord maker tool, then wove it in.  I then played with another hat a bit more.  Here is a video of the first hat (gray/blue).  My daughter LOVED the orange one.  

Cordy icord tool is available on the website.  Shipping worldwide and qty discounts.

Needle Beetles now for Brother machines too!

 Last year I came out with the "Needle Beetle" needle selector for the Silver Reed (studio,singer) LK-150, LK-140, LK-100, Zippy 90, and GK-370.  It was a hit!  but I kept getting asked if it would work on the Brother plastic machines, KX and Convertibles.  Unfortunately they have different widths (not length) to their needle beds and a couple other factors such as they don't have the round knobs on top of their needles like the LK's do.  I weighed whether to take on another expensive project, but so many were asking I went ahead and did it.  

I am happy to announce that we now have the Needle Beetle II for the Brother plastic machines, KX models and convertible models.  *sorry thus far it will not work on the KH-341. 

The Needle Beetle needle selector makes selecting needle arrangements go MUCH faster when working specialty stitches such as tuck, slip, weaving, lace, fairisle, etc.

Needle Beetle for LK machines.

Needle Beetle II for Brother KX & Convertible machines.

Both Needle Beetle and Needle Beetle II work exactly the same way, they both work on 8-stitch pattern repeats (16 for the Convertible 9mm option).  You simply select the first 8 needles, push the Needle Beetle across the needle bed and the NB will select all the rest of the stitches exactly in the pattern you chose.   There are now some great videos on Youtube by various knitters demo-ing the NB.

New Weaving attachment for LK-150 Knitting Machine!


New for the LK machines!

The Weave-R attachment will fit the following machines:
LK-150, LK-140, LK-100, Zippy 90, GK-370.
*No, I am sorry it will not fit other machines.
The Weave-R attachment will speed up your knit-weaving projects. This attachment is used in conjunction with your main carriage. You lay your weaving yarn across needles that are selected and pushed out to "D" position, then run the Weave-R across the needle bed. The weaving yarn will then be woven (over & under) the needles, then, knit across with your main carriage and you now have a nice contrast yarn woven in. Watch my demo video here: A much faster way to perform knit weaving than having to do hand manipulations. For more info/purchasing, go to
