This sweater was knitted for me by my mother, Sally.  It was one of the first things she made on her knitting machine (many years ago).  The sweater pattern is very simple.  She really wanted to try out the lace carriage.  The raglan sleeves let her make the lace all the way around the top of the garment by making the same pattern across the top of each sleeve, the front, and the back.  It is such a cute look. 

 

This is a close-up of the detail in the lace.  This look is made by the lace carriage transfering stitches from one needle to an adjacent needle, either left or right.  When you knit the row with the regular carriage, you get the effect of knitting two together, then wrapping the yarn over the needle.  The yarn she used is a Trenzado.  I love the shiny peach.  I've had this sweater for 20 years now and it still looks great!

The thing I can't do on my machine is these great ribbings.  I don't have a ribbing attachment.  It is like having a whole other set of needles that clip on under the main row of needles.  Then you cast on stitches on every-other-needle on each set.  The top set knits, while the bottom set purls.  When the ribbing is done you transfer the stitches all up to the main machine and remove the ribbing attachment.
