How-To: Choose and Use a Knitting Machine

If you’ve been perusing eBay in search of the knitting machine of your dreams, here’s a video that might help you make up your mind about what sort of machine you should choose. The trouble with buying a second-hand knitting machine is that a lot of information that used to be available about them is gone and never made it onto the internet. So this little gem, shared by youtube user lightanddarker, is a real find because “a modern knitting machine puts the world of beautiful fashion knitwear at your fingertips.”


Even if you’re not interested in knitting machines, this video is still worth a gander if you’d like to pick up some tips on sporting a tacky sweater on a boat.
