Recent work

Hi all,
this is last weekends little project, I was using up scraps of sock yarn i had from previous pairs. The yarn is 4ply Sidar Town & Country 75% wool and 25% nylon. I knitted them on my Singer knitting machine each sock taking about 2 hours on the machine and 1 hour finishing off.

they look flawless! 2 hours for one sock? I should get one of those machines...

If wishes and buts were clusters and nutes we'd all have a bowl of granola.

thanks, I've made a few pairs now so I'm getting better/quicker. I'd try knitting by hand but unfortunately I can't knit with double pointed or circular needles, only 35cm long needles that I can 'hold' under my arm.

How wonderful!
I had no idea there was a home sock knitter...are they still available..or is it an old one?

Hi, it's actually a flat bed knitting machine with ribber attachment, capable of making anything from a sweater to afghans or anything in between. It's about 25 years old but in good condition.

Hi Rory,

That machine sounds amazing and your socks look fantastic.
Do you think you could take a picture of the machine and post it so I can get an idea as to what it looks like? If it is not too much trouble of course.
