Indigo Knit

Here is a first attempt at indigo knit. The thread here is stocking grade mercerized cotton. It was very fine, so I threw four treads after dying them. The knitting machine was imported to Japan the late 1950s and still in use. Originally it was a t-shirt fabric knitter. This is a new world for me and it looks like fun. Silk thread, paper thread.... trying something new every week. Perhaps by autumn there will be some new products in the shop. The stripes are a bit too much...


  1. Cannot wait to see what you come up with.

  2. Wow I love how it turns out. I bet it's so comfy and warm!

  3. if you can get hold of a second hand brother flat bed knitting machine go for it.loads of fun and games.
