Latest Fight Night

Live coverage from the arena in upstate NY!  In the right corner is the defending champion Studio 700 Knitting Machine looking strong after 30 years and coming from the UPS delivery truck.  In the left corner is the “Knitting Newbie” from Cabin Creek Stitchery with no formal training in technique or patternwork.

The challenger begins with the tension rod set up and yarn threading through the obstacle course of levers and holes.  The needles are aligned and positioned waiting for the carriage to initiate.  The movement begins smoothly with the clickety-clack sound of a train until…SNAG!  The newbie is trapped in a carriage arm bar and can’t let the yarn escape.  The horn blows and round 1 is over.

Returning to the corner, the “Knitting Newbie” looks defeated.  She flips through more pages of the instruction manual and resets her calculations.  The tension rod setting gets iced and the yarn massaged into place to return for round 2.  Again, the gliding mechanism begins slowly, the “Newbie” looks confident and WHAM!  Another blow.  Underestimating the experience of training and technical advisement was a huge mistake.  However, this challenger doesn’t shy away from the pounding.  She takes a deep breath, resumes her fighting stance and is determined to defeat the Studio 700 Knitting Machine.
