If you’ve been wanting to purchase a knitting machine, this would be a fun machine to own.

Note shipping price is for Fed-Ex ground within 48 contiguous US states - Hawaii or Alaska please inquire for the shipping price.

Note: there is a minimal metal crinkle on the backside of the machine near the carry handle - see last photo to the right of the carry handle. This minor bend does not impair the knitting in any way.
