Sock Knitting Using the Circular Sock Machine

As a Spring City Knitter I am constantly amazed at the talent within our Club. The photo at the left was sent to me by a fellow member, Margo Ketchum.

Unknown to us Margo owned a sock machine in addition to her bulky knitting machine. At the recent seminar held by the Spring City Knitters and Machine Knitters Guild of PA in June, we invited circular sock machine knitters (CSM) Stephanie DeVoe and Gregory Wollon to demonstrate sock knitting on a circular sock knitting machine.

Little did we realize how popular this class would be. Those who went to this class were clearly motivated to continue working on their machines. As you can see Margo did a great job of knitting the socks.

In case you didn't know, circular sock knitting is enjoying a resurgence. Who knows, maybe a sock machine is in my future. Though I still have the issue of "where" to put another machine. Oh well, for now it's just a dream.
