  •   ljbusekrus @knitsforlife how much would you charge for a pair of monster feet- womens size 8? would make an awesome chriatmas gift 8mon
  •   knitsforlife @ljbusekrus They're about $120, but for you I'd do it for less! Does H not have time? She has the pattern. 8mon

  •   bylizk What kind of machine do you recommend? I'm just starting to learn about machine knitting and am looking to invest in one once I learn a bit more! Do you have any suggestions on brands or models? 9mon
  •   knitsforlife I think brother is the only brand making new ones. I found a meetup near me to ask questions at before shopping. Then found a Craigslist score. Search for machine knitting guilds in your area :) @bylizk 9mon
  •   bylizk Thank you for the advice! I really appreciate it :) @knitsforlife 9mon
  •   knitsforlife @bylizk wow I left MSU grad school 2 y ago! My earliest Instagram pics are all herbarium collections and bastions of Lansing street art. 9mon
  •   bylizk That's so funny! I just scrolled down and saw so many familiar places/pictures! Were you a studio art major at MSU? I was English! I love your work, how fun that you're a Spartan! 9mon
  •   knitsforlife @bylizk I was getting my doctorate in Plant Biology and EEBB. Left with a masters and switched to designing because it was more fun. A big, scary leap but fun now. 9mon
  •   bylizk Wow what a great story! I'm glad I asked you a question :) your background is so cool! 9mon
  •   knitsforlife Thanks @bylizk glad you asked too! I bet there are machine knitting groups in MI. There seem to be more where it gets cold :) 9mon
