Word Photo Challenge 2016

I'm  baaaack! Sorry for being so long missing, but it was Mothers Day and everything, so this is the second long week in the challenge - I'll try not to do anymore!

So the weeks (fortnights) word is CREATIVE, and have I got a photo for you!!

My friend offered me this a while ago, and finally I am able to stretch my CREATIVE mind and learn how to  use it!

"What is it?" I hear you ask.

"It is this" I reply:

I hear you ask again "What is it?", to which I reply "It is an Empisal KH91 knitting machine".

I'm sure you can understand how this machine is streatching my creative brain to its absolute limits! I can knit by hand, but I have never ever used a knitting machine, let alone one this old and beautiful!

But , believe me, I am learning fast - I can now cast on and knit plain rows, so I'm going well.

Now I just need to learn about this:

I'm sorry you cannot see this well, but this is the Empisal KH90 ribber, it attaches (!) to the flat bed machine, and i will be able to make all sorts of exciting things with these!

In the plastic bucket on the bottom is a load of lovely soft fabric for the backs of quiltm, and in the top box there are all the original manuals for these machines, plus lots of yarn!

Aren't I a lucky girl??!

I am really so happy with this, I am looking forward to letting my creativity take over once I learn all the basics.

So join in below and show us your "creative" and I will be back  Tuesday with next weeks word.

Take Care
