About me: I am a part-time knitter and full-time software developer. Machine knitting has been a very satisfying outlet for my creativity and desire to make things. Being both a software developer and knitter gives me unique insights to both endeavours. I love my E6000, but sometimes my interactions have been frustrating. I wrote Journal Six specifically to make the design and knitting experience more enjoyable and productive. Once you try it, you will agree: Journal Six brings out the best in you and your knitting machine.
