Q&A with napaholic

Porcupineologyknits asked:
What machine did you use for this beauty?
napaholic answered:
Silver Reed LK150
estitami asked:
I have a LK150 and was not able to knit fingering weight, it seems way too loose of a stitch count. Can I ask what mdial setting did you use?
napaholic answered:
I used sock yarn and set tension to 4(the one on the mask) and stitch dial to 3 (the one on the carriage). I think one strand of fingering weight yarn is too thin for this machine unless you want the lace look. You can try knitting two or three strands together. I’m working on another project now on the LK150 using three strands of cashmere threads together. Hope this help!
Martas asked:
Hi, for this sweater, did you use two strands of Malabrigo Sock knitted together? Or with just one strand? Thanks.
napaholic answered:
I used one strand of Malabrigo sock.
