The potter has a wheel and the wood turner a lathe. The tool I use to create my original socks etc, is a 1908 hand-cranked circular knitter. All work is hand finished.
German yarn 75% wool/25% nylon

I have been a fiber artist almost my entire life. I love the juxtaposition of using ultra-modern materials on my ancient machine. In addition, I enjoy pushing the machine to its limits and creating things on it that the creators of the machine could never have dreamed of.
