It is a shame that I didn't read the reviews for this book before buying it. Yes, it covers the basics of using a sock knitting machine, and as such, the information is useful. However, it's usefulness is limited by a) awful grammar and style of writing and b) a lack of depth to the actual material. I've had a couple of problems with my machine and the advice is both limited but also difficult to follow due to the style of language. Writing a book is very different from teaching a class and there is no doubt that the book would benefit from a good editor and additional information. The section on doing a heel was very confusing and often inaccurate.

I am sorry to be so negative because there is certainly a need for a contemporary manual on sock knitting machines, and I had hoped this would be it. Perhaps I wouldn't feel so negative if it hadn't been so expensive. As it stands it is simply not worth the money.

Very good basic information and pictures for anyone thinking of purchasing a sock machine. It's written as if she were sitting with you and explaining the machine and it's operation. A good reference when starting out on your sock knitting adventure.

This book really is a "101" course. It is very basic and not for anyone with experience with one of these wonderful old machines. I was a complete novice and by following the very clear directions one step at a time I made a tube with my sock machine the very first time I tried. I highly recommend this book to anyone just starting out with a CSM especially if there is no one nearby to help with instruction.

It is a nice start for a beginner. It has clear pictures and descriptions for a person with little to no CSM experience. I use it as a resource every time I use the CSM. I am looking forward to a second book.

I purchased this book because I had recently bought an antique Gearhart sock knitting machine. It was recommended to me by my daughter who has a Legare sock knitting machine and also owns this book. The information covers the major brands of antique machines and is very good. If you can get past the fact that the author really needed to have the text reviewed and corrected by someone who has, at least, a basic working knowledge of punctuation, captalization, and sentence formation, you will find the book full of helpful information in getting started cleaning and using your "new" old machine. Because of the lack of punctuation, I highly recommend reading it through once, and adding a few commas, etc., in order to make the information more understandable.

Good information was provided on making heels and toes, hanging a hem, a set up bonnet, and a basic sock. That's all, no other patterns. Nothing was included on the use of a ribber. One half of the book is dedicated to cleaning and setting up and the general operation of the machine. The pictures, and there are lots of them, are very helpful. I will continue to use this book as a reference guide, because it contains basic, reliable information.

I wish I had purchased this book BEFORE I bought my machine. I would have had a much better grasp on what to look for, and how the machine should work, before spending the large amount of money that these machines are currently selling for.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I purchased this book because I just purchased a new tube knitting machine. I thought from reading the description of the book, and the various reviews, that it was the most likely to give me some insight into the tricks, tips and techniques of operating the machine. The book arrived very quickly in excellent condition. I was, however, disappointed in my selection because this book focused more on the acquisition and assembly of a vintage machine, its 'care and feeding' if you will. While I cannot dispute the value of the contents, it was not what I was hoping for in the realm of how to use the new machine. The book is very well done, and does have some very helpful information about the machines, but if you want a book to help you use a new machine then I would recommend looking just a bit further.

I was very disappointed to say the least with this book. The author has good info and pictures on her website but the book has terrible black and white pictures and lacking in much info. THe vocabulary used was very poor and trhe book should have been edited.
There are many pictures but it is hard to decern what part is what, when they are in different shades of grey that look like they were not taken with a good camera with many pixels and somewhat blurry. There are many pictures but they do not show the machine in it's entirety, only a small section, so that you don't understand what it is and where it is. At time terms are used to describe parts but then you can't find that part anywhere listed in the book. If you do not know the term then you are in trouble. Sme things that were shown were shown on a machine that was made differently than mine and so I could not figure out what to do with my machine. I was very disappointed in the book and felt that it in no way warranted the price of this book.
Her 2nd book has better pictures than this book but it is still a black and white book.
