Knitting machines are not just for acrylic yarns. You can knit all fibers—from cottons to wools, and most novelty yarns. The mid-gauge is the most versatile machine, letting you knit from your hand knitting stash.
Machine knitting is not cheating! We don’t begrudge seamstresses their sewing machines, or weavers their looms. A knitting machine is just another tool in the repertoire. Machines still need human creativity and nimble fingers to work their magic.
Machine knitted garments can look just like hand-knitted garments, especially when they include hand-manipulated techniques on a mid-gauge machine.
A knitting machine is not for everyone. Chances are you will never knit an intricate sweater on a knitting machine.
While there is cross-over in what you can do by hand and by machine, it’s important to recognize that they are different crafts.
A knitting machine can open up worlds of techniques, creativity, and possibilities—you will never get bored with a machine.
