Portmanteau Diary: Arrival of the knitting machine

For the complimentary opposites collection I was planning to knit the double layered dresses so that the circles on either side could be integrated in the fabric itself rather than be a patchworked piece. Kat had a knitting machine lying around and we took a day out in order to dust it off and learn how to make the old thing work with a lot of help from the internet.

Doesn't look like much, but considering the machine tends to get jammed up very easily, a smooth piece like this means a lot!
