I recently was asked to work with skacel's Addi Express.
to get it to work may be a better way of putting it.
we had heard that skacel made one and thought it could be a good way to crank out samples of yarn...right? cuz people love to see how things knit up.
Skacel's Addi Express costs about $115.
Seriously.
At that price you might think you a getting a great deal on an antique sock knitting machine. but it looks just like the $14 one at michael's...and Michael's has 40% off coupons!
they work almost exactly the same! both have to have perfect tension or the stitches drop, both can only use certain yarn weights...sport weight or smaller.
so what do you get with the more expensive model? a way to attach it to a table and a wire to dangle the yarn from above.
that is it. really.
