I came across the bond knitting machine some yrs back, and it has been in the back of my head for a long time, as I thougth it would be helpfull to knitt woolfabric that I could felt for sewing. So finally I got it a few months back. It's a simple and easy manual machine, knitts fast if you want garter stitch, anything else, you migth aswell use your normal knitting pinns:)
So this small dress for my daugther, is knitted on the machine, exept for the edges. The bottom of the skirt is knitted by hand in the end (and I used about the same time for this 6 row edge, as I did for the rest of the skirt;), and the edges on the top is crochet.
