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.
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.
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.
It is truly an excellent "Get Started " Help. I would like to see Book two cover the ribber.
My Legare machine works great...but not the ribber. I am finding that there is not Much info out there as to
how to take a look at the ribber or how to adjust it. It is very necessary information and I wish
there had been a section on that in this book.

The CSM's are antique; nothing else has been written; hard to believe this is the only CSM bible for 20th century. No other books are out there. Just u-tube. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Cynthia D.
