    Hi, My daughter sent me a link to this site. I have a sock knitter with stand and original shipping box, made of wood. We used to use it when our daughter was young, and had a ball with it. It sits alone now. Linda

    Thanks for the great article, Jennifer!

    Linda, I’m pretty sure I can find a home for your sock knitter, if Jennifer doesn’t want it… ;-D

    That is so bizarre… I woke up this morning dreaming about how I could MAKE a machine to knit a sock. I never knew these machines existed. Really fascinating article. Thanks.

    Hey, I really enjoyed that video – what a nifty little device. I do love a machine that’s all mechanical parts (not eletronics) and understandable devices. Fun!

    I used to buy socks at a local market made by a man who used a sock knitting machine. I’ve been keen to find one since.
