Well, whaddaya know!!!1!

Look, I made the machine work! And it even looks like knitting.

Seriously, after the second row, it took me all of five minutes to do this:

I've got to figure out garter stitch, and FSM knows that it will take me a while to get around to ribbing, but right now, I'm pleased to have stockinette.

Clearly, it's not perfect - I did drop a couple stitches (see upper left), but still, five minutes!

Time to try with real wool, I think. Not ackrylic. I think I see a felted cat bed in my future (felting will hide all the mistakes).

That is very neat! I took a look at the link you had before... still not sure if I understand how it works... but obviously it works! WOOT FOR YOU!
Shortbread... this weekend. We won't get in to the missing container that I found upstairs with two very guilty looking children... will we?
No, not until I've had a chance to drink the last glass or two of your wine! no... not visiting that moment for a while.
