My 6 year old daughter asked me to teach her how to knit so she could make clothes for her dolls...but I don't know how. I took a chance when I saw this product in a catalog; it had no reviews then so I was just hoping it would work well. She got it for Christmas and has had a blast with it! By the end of Christmas morning, she had already knitted two different pairs of leg warmers which she now loves showing off as her own creation to her dance class. She's also made a full-sized adult scarf and is working on a poncho for herself. She is beyond thrilled that she can do this on her own and actually has a product to be proud of at the end of it all.

I did not have any of the issues the other reviewer had. It's hard plastic, so I don't expect it to last forever, but we have put it through some work and it's still holding up. You must be sure to keep the thread easily moving through the machine; it puts a lot of strain when it's trying to pull it out of the skein itself. Also, **be sure to read ALL the way through to the end of the directions about marking the starting point with a permanent marker before beginning (that was written last and didn't make any sense...it should be front and center because THAT matters!) My daughter needs a little help loading it up and tying the ends off when her product is complete, but I enjoy something that we can work on together and it doesn't bother me that she needs my help for 2 minutes or less on certain stages.

Bottom line: we're having a blast with it! (I think everyone in the family is getting a knitted scarf for Christmas next year.) :)

Hi,

This machine is surprisingly exceptional....so, I have to tell the world lol

seriously.. I was pleasantly impressed, after trying this knitter on almost all types and weights of yarn.... it works!

it squeaks a bit for heavier weights (like a clunky toy), but with a little patience i was even able to use double yarn to make my socks.. I dont recommend double yarn in "walmart" yarn weight if you can help it.. get a better, lighter weight yarn.. and it has a slightly wider spacing between each needle than the professional sock makers...but not bad.

I have a professional Addi knitter for larger items, but couldn't afford the small "sock" addi maker as well, so tried this one. I'm sooo glad I was able to save the $120 extra bucks since this-while not perfect-is adequate for my needs.. and, in my opinion, far superior to a "toy" :)

I'd recommend it

I have this machine, the larger NSI/Innovations machine, and the Addi machines... I think the NSI/Innovations machines do as nice a job as the Addis, although the Addi has some user-friendly features, like a better yarn guide and a row counter. Not necessarily worth the price difference though. However, the reason I have all of the machines is because the NSI/Innovations makes a smaller stitch while the Addi is a somewhat larger stitch. Also, the Addi handles thicker, bulkier, "fuzzier" yarns better, while the NSI/Innovations handles the thinner, sock yarns better. With a combination of all the machines, you can quickly knock out any item you want to make in any yarn. However, they all only do one stitch, so for a variety of sttiches, or if you want socks with heels, you have to work by hand. I can't imagine any way you can possibly add a heel to a sock using any of these machines (you can remove the item from the machine to work a fancier toe and cuff, but I don't see how you could do that for the heel).
These machines are all quick, quick, quick, and as long as you go slowly and are watching the stitches carefully, the work is flawless. Every stitch is uniform and the completed items look fabulous. In this regard, I actually think the NSI/Innovations do a slightly better job than the Addi, which I feel I have to monitor a bit more carefully than these cheaper "toy" versions for dropped stitches and "slack". However, those problems are easily solved - if you drop a stitch, turn the handle backwards and manually put the yarn on the hook and carry on - no knitting or crochet knowledge necessary! They are all excellent machines that do what they promise, if you can afford all of them. If not, these cheaper versions are more than adequate for most needs.

As soon as I opened the box we starting knitting. It took a few times to figure out how the needles work. It is important to have the tension hooked up right. The instructions are not so good and knowing a bit about knitting helps. Having said that my purpose was to have my grandkids (3 &4) help make their leg warmers and mittens. We did the first day make the first leg warmers. They were able to crank with a little help. We made a long snake last night for the 2 year old which he loves. My imagination is sparked and I have lots of ideas for new projects. I wanted to know whether I would enjoy a knitting machine. It is lots of fun.

This is a mommy/daddy and me craft. But, that is what I expected when I ordered it. After carefully reading the instructions and practicing a couple of times. I was able to get it set up so she could take over and "crank" out an adorable tube scarf. She was so excited and proud of her creation. I have not tried panels yet, we are still enjoying the tube function. I still need to do the finishing of the ends, but she is watching and learning. I don't knit but she has been asking to learn, so I thought this was something we could do together. I recommend it, but be patient! It takes some practice in the beginning, it has a steep learning curve, but once you got it, you are off and knitting!
