Knitting Machine=Big Pile of Suck, Actually

~In which I go to Home Despot for knitting supplies~

So I got the knitting machine set up this morning, and I had a little trouble with it; it didn't want to play nicely. But I had finally wrestled it under my control.

Or so I thought.

It chose that moment to let go of the tv stand I had it clamped to and take a dive.

Here we see the three puncture marks it made in my knee, and the cheery rainbow slipper the hooks got caught in. Phase One of this project has officially lost its charm.

Drastic measures were clearly the way to go.

So, I took myself to Home Despot. There I picked up 2 c-clamps and a 24" x 48" panel of MDF. The MDF has been clamped to the tv stand, and the knitting machine has been clamped to the MDF. With both clamps. I'll let you know how it goes from here.

Also, Eve felt left out--she wanted to get in on Theme Caturday.

No, I haven't become a Bud Light drinker--beer boxes just make good moving boxes.

Look how handy you are!

It makes up for knitting hating you and hurting you.

You show that knitting who's boss.
