- Nov 29, 2004Margaret,
I stopped breathing when I saw the art you created, because art it is.
Did you use some illusion in it, too? I cannot tell because the
pattern is very dynamic. Yes, you guessed me right, I actually
haven't seen any knitting, never seen a machine before if only
Thank you for encouragement.
Can you tell me how long did it take you to:
modify the pattern in DAK?
make each arm?
assemble all together
total amount of time?
I want to have a modern version of PPD and FB100 substituted by a PC.
Let's say, I can buy a design from you that way I could use my PC to
download it to a knitting machine, assuming no modificatins are
neccessary (I can see a big business for people modifying patterns on
DAK for others and it tells me that DAK could have a version of their
program just for that purpose).
