    HELP choosing knitting machine please 21st Mar 18 at 4:58 PM
    Wondered if you could give me some advice please.
    I am a complete beginner and never used a knitting machine before, but would love to learn.
    I have been offered 3 machines and wondered if you would be able to shed a little light on which would be good for a newbie.
    The machines are:
    Brother KH836
    Brother KH881
    Brother Electroknit KH950
    My thoughts are maybe the KH836 as it sounds the simplest.

    I look forward to hearing from you very much.

    My knitting machines are all Silver Reeds and I'm not too familar with the Brothers. How about you join Ravelry machine kntting forum and ask on there- there's plenty of Brother users there to advise.

    Personally I'd go with the 881, assuming all the bits are there.
