We’ve still got a long way to go before we are wearing socks made on this machine, but simply getting it cast on and knitting was a wonderful hurdle to have made it over today.
We’ve all had a turn this evening and have cranked out many feet worth of knitted tube. I even just switched to a different yarn! Woohoo!
One of the boys said “You’ve got to admit. This thing is pretty cool.”
Mary Ann says
Wahoooo!!!!! That is one cool looking purple… tube. Can’t wait for my turn at cranking.
dude, those socks are gonna look awesome on me!
Cool! Bring it when you come visit, k?
Warty Mammal says
Oh, awesome. So much more efficient than a bunch of nails hammered into an old wood spool!
I love these machines, they have 10 or so at the local frameknitters museum.

But how do you make a heel?

Ohhhh. way cool!! Yeah, what Vicki said…how do you make a heel?
I’m with the others — how do you get from the tube to sock?? Tube socks?
Lynn Douglass says
I don’t care how you make a heel, I just know that I want a pair of knitted socks! Lemme know when you are ready to sell them!
