Here is an Incredible, in perfect working condition antique Sock knitting machine.
This beauty was made for the war effort. Woman at home would knit socks and help their men at the front in the first world war. They made money and kept the mens feet warm and dry.
This is a collectors piece. Made by Legear in Montreal Que.

* I have additional instructions and documentation that I sourced after obtaining the machine, full of step by step instructions that will get you started, show you how to set it up and how to make different socks and styles.
* This machine can make, Socks, yoga socks, leg warmers, arm warmers, infinity scarves and more, depending on your skill.
