Hi,

What kind of light/lamp does everyone use when working with their knitting machine. Where do you place it? I have a floor lamp that I have placed in all different areas around the machine, but I either get glare or shadows. I tried all different bulbs, daylight, soft light, but nothing is giving me good light. During the day I'm fine, just open all the blinds, but at night I'm having a problem.

Thanks
Gail

Having a bookcase behind my machine table, I was able to attach one of these to one of the shelves, making it easy to adjust it to whatever position is required.

When we renovated the basement last year we put small halogen lights in the ceiling. Before that DH hung a shop light (4 ft long tubes) light over the machine. It can easily be hung from a couple of hooks.
