Hello, I've been knitting for a little while now and am considering designing and selling sweaters. I want to be able to turn out some sweaters in a relatively faster time than handknitting. Here's what I've discovered in my few minutes of tip-of-the-iceberg research:
Using sport yarns to make my sweaters, I gather that a really durable and quality machine is a Silver Reed Mid-gauge. Though not the cheapest, the quality more than makes up for cost.
For several hundred dollars cheaper, is the Silver Reed L-150 (?). Does good work, but is made of plastic and could over time and production, become service needy.
I would like to know if anyone has any info on either of these machines or on machine knitting in general. Perhaps someone might suggest a better machine for my meager abilities?
