I encountered my first circular sock machine at CountryFile live at Blenheim palace in the summer of 2018. A nice chap had a stall selling yarn and he had a machine set up. He was doing a demonstration. I was fascinated by this wonderful piece of victorian engineering. Later that year, I decided to find out more and attended a one to one lesson with Anne Drew at Cymbal Knits.
I managed to make a decent pair of socks in a day and I was hooked. Later that month, I bought my first circular sock machine. It took a good 6 months to prefect making socks. I now make socks on a regular basis and sell the socks along with hot water bottles at local craft fairs. You can buy my socks by clicking the link to my sumup on my homepage.
Here are some examples of socks I have made with my machine
