I finally decided to purchase a circular knitting machine. I wanted to buy and Addi but before investing that much money in one I decided to use my 50% off coupon at Michael’s and I got this one for only $35. I have only been using it for about a week and have already seen great results; however, I have seen in some groups that there are reports of the plastic not lasting that long so I have been advised to keep my receipt just in case. I have been using different types of yarn on it and am finding that it works well with sock yarn. I have only made a few scarves and a few hats but it seems to be working nicely.
