I'm a genius!
Well not really. I finally cracked open the manual that came with my Bernina that my grandma gave me for my high school graduation in 2000. That means I've had the machine for 9 years without ever reading the manual. And wow was I impressed! I learned what some of the random things that were included with my machine were for. But more importantly I learned what some of the stitches were for. I was especially excited to discover that I have a stitch specifically for knits that stretches with the knit. AMAZING! I'm using it on a sweater jumper I'm making for Ellie out of an old sweater vest of mine. I found a tutorial here that I got the idea from (but I've made a lot of changes). I'll post pictures later. In the meantime, I recommend that you bust out your machine manual and see if you learn something new. I sure as heck did!
