Repeat – sock knitting machine.

This week has been all about sock knitting machines. Not only that; all about Swedish sock knitting machines. I have never seen any sock knitting machines in Norway and in two days I see two for sale. Obviously they ended up with me. Bothe came in bits and pieces. I already blogged about the Favorit – a tower like construction.

Here is Perssons Omega – put together by yours truly.


The machine has two yarn feeders and a tension control on each. Looks a bit like bees!


As with the other Swedish knitting machine “Favorit” this one has the brushes. I think their function is to make sure the latches are open all the time.


I love the little bell on the round counter!
