Cheat Sheets for Silver Reed Knitting machines

I mentioned on Ravelry that I had had a tough time memorizing the Silver Reed settings.  I am a dyed in the wool Brother lover, and the Silver Reed seemed pretty foreign to me.   So I bought a 3" x 5" card stock spiral notebook to write down in simple terms what the steps were for the most used settings.  This way I didn't have to keep thumbing through the manual.  Feel free to use these however you wish.  Right click, copy and paste into an image processing program (like PAINT, for PC users).  Hope it helps you out.  (If hard to read, click on the image and it should enlarge.)

Thank you for the great idea and for the stitch samples. I use this method for hand knitting, never thought about using it for machine knitting!

Thank you for the cheat sheets. I have copied them and have them hanging by my SK860. Now if I could only figure out how to do some of those!

HI Linda,
Obviously I didn't think the 860 was easy either or I wouldn't have made up the cheat sheets. Just used to the Brother, I guess. Hope they help you along!
