Several years ago I saw someone making socks on a machine at a fiber festival. It totally fascinated me. The geek who loves gadgets in me could not get that machine out of my mind! Years (and dozens of skeins of unknit sock yarn) later, I finally decided to visit Sox School at Good Karma Farm in Belfast Maine. Jim Grant had me hooked on cranking and he and the lovely folks at Erlbacher Gearhart had me on my journey to becoming a “cranker”!
in 2016 I became the proud owner of a beautiful Speedster Circular Sock Machine. I’m cranking socks like crazy and loving every minute of it. Of course the more I accomplish the more I discover that I don’t know and want to learn.
