Doll Clothes with KnitWare

A while back I made some doll clothes with the KnitWare program for my friends little girl. KnitWare Basics is a super program for doll clothes, teddy bear clothes etc. She has 3 programs for knitwear, Sweaters, Skirts & Basics. You can pretty much find a pattern for any size doll. I love all her programs & have all 3 of them. They work great on 'Windows 7' 32 bit so I can continue to use them after upgrading my computer. They do not work on 64 bit versions so make sure which version you buy when you move up.

A few posts ago I mentioned that I am having trouble with my Brother 965i not sensing the Garter Carriage on the right side of the machine. It caused the GC lamp to go out when the GC pasted that sensor & it mis-patterned across the bed. I took out my spare GC & tried it with that one & it did the same thing so I knew it was the 965i & not the GC. I do have an extra board for the machine but don't want to use it unless I have to as I doubt that I could find another one now. I removed the board from the machine & used my computer vac to clean it off. I did this without removing any wires, but I did check to make sure the wires were on tight, & they were. Then I put it back into the machine & set it to pattern for 50 rows. Problem solved!! The machine is patterning great again & I am back to knitting with the GC.
