Knitmaster 321 accessories

You remember, when yesterday I talked about the accessories of the Knitmaster 321, the ones I had and the ones I still have to buy? Well, today I'm going to talk about them.

  • Knit radar, (KR6): Everything I buy for my knitting machine, comes from eBay, and the KR6 was the first accessory I've bought after the SRP 50 ribber, the knit radar enables you to knit garments, with no need of written instructions, the only thing you have to do is a tension square and choose the pattern paper from the ones that come with it.

Here's a photo of it:

  • Liker, (SC1): the liker, enables you to cast off automatically by turning its handle, it also sews up garments, (straight edges on a sweater) on the knitting machine, actually I didn't have much luck with it, because although I think it was attached to the machine correctly, it was stiff to move across the needle bed, so it dropped the stitches and didn't cast off anything! Anyway, I'll try again, I don't surrender that easily.
Here's a photo of it:

  • Handy punch, (HP1): the handy punch, is used to punch out blank punchcards and it allows you to create you own stitch patterns and motifs.

Here's a photo of it:

And now what I have to buy:

  • Rib transfer carriage, (RT1): it is used to transfer stitches from the ribber to the main bed, but since it can be done with a double eyed transfer tool, this carriage simply makes this action faster to do.

And now I'm going to tell you what happened to me the other day, I was checking my mail and I found an e-mail from eBay which said that an eBay member contacted me, I wasn't selling anything so I was wondering why would a eBayer contact me, but anyway I opened the e-mail and it said that the same seller of the SRP 50 ribber, was wondering which machine model I had because he had a YC1 colour changer, that would fit the Knitmaster 321, at the beginning I wasn't sure so I e-mailed my friend and and she said that at such a low price, (£10), it was worth buying it, and so I did; it should be here, at the beginning of next week.

That's all for now,

Hi there, I am just about to Purchase the Knitmaster 321 and have never used a knitting machine before. Can I use this machine without punchcards, so like just reading instructions off old knitting books my Mum has? Thanks
