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 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.

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.

It is exciting to see the surging interest in CSMs, and I am excited to have just purchased a beautifully refurbished machine. This book came out at just the right time for me and is a wealth of knowledge and information regarding CSMs, covering all of the major brands. However, I must warn you that the writing is seriously in need of an editor. There are really serious grammar and punctuation errors throughout the entire book and it makes it very difficult to read. As a freelance editor, I'd love to help them edit the book. The one redeeming factor is that it is the only book about CSMs in existence, so I guess they have a sure-thing in their audience.

This book has a ton of good information for someone just beginning to knit or purchase a sock machine.
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.

Format: Paperback
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.
