Antique sock machines are timeless
workhorses that operate without the use of electricity,
batteries or petroleum.
100% of the energy utilised to operate the machine is derived
from the human hand. With each turn of the crank wheel,
hundreds of stitches are produced.
With time and experience, you
will be able to knit a pair of socks in about 1 - 1.5 hours
on an antique sock machine.
Many knitters customarily knit
a pair of socks in an evening! Imagine that!
In addition, your "workhorse"
will allow you to knit through that huge stash of yarn that has
been sitting idle for so long.......only to send you off to
the knitting store for more!
