Hello, my name is Andrea from Northern Ireland. I am an enthusiastic machine knitter but am interested in all things woollen. I am an active member of the NI Machine Knitters Guild which has renewed my interest in machine knitting. I own a standard Brother 940 electronic knitting machine and a Brother Chunky. I also hand knit and love looking at new wools and patterns.

Today I spent some time deciding what to knit next. I was thinking about a poncho/cape sort of thing with 3 panels - one of weaving and two plain stocking which I could sew together and then put a loose neckband on. I completed a woven tension square with Sirdar Reflections and brown acrylic for the middle panel. Not sure about tensions and this would mean making a woven panel in one tension and then another tension for the plain brown. Still considering. Anyone any ideas what this might make?
