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 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.) :)
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. My young children can operate all the machines easily (with help casting on and binding off, of course), and enjoy making me socks as presents, and they also use them to make "sleeping bags", hats, and more for their baby dolls! :0) The larger size is ideal for adult hats, tubular doll clothes (skirts and dresses) for larger dolls, and handbags. The smaller size machines are best for socks, legwarmers, doll clothes for smaller dolls, and baby hats. All four machines are also capable of knitting flat panels.. All in all, they are GREAT machines.
