Sock Machine – Back in Business
I should have started with a proper cleaning, but I got back to knitting with my antique sock machine and it was lovely. I recently purchased a ‘bonnet’ to help with casting on – I had been using one of the antique tools that came with it, but it was falling apart and took forever to set up properly. The bonnet is MUCH easier to use, and sturdier. Hopefully this helps me preserve the tool. The sock above is slightly too tight, so I need to mess with tension still, and I need to kitchener stitch the toe – but it took under an hour to complete, and I’m glad that I can use up some stash this way. I have an entire bag of kroy sock yarn to use up, and I’d also like to do a few practice socks while I learn what size my husband wears. You can never have too many socks.
