My husband has been very busy of late cranking out pairs of beautiful socks on his antique sock machines. Years ago, I purchaed a Legare circular sock machine from ebay, hoping to make socks. The machine was quickly hijacked by my husband, a tool and die maker by trade, set up and used. We had a few problems with tension and as the directions were all en francais and it has been a while since I spoke french, it was put in the closet to collect dust for about 5 years. I then took my hubbie to the Michigan Fibre Festival, and one of the ladies there taught him how to make a sock and he has been happily cranking ever since. We do ell socks,: great gifts, and he will make socks to order. Come talk to us this weekend at the Woodtock Fleece Fetival, this coming Saturday, October 22 and watch a sock being created.
