Just getting started with machine knitting? This machine is light weight, easy to use and will use many hand knitting yarns (sport, DK and 4 ply). Combine your hand and machine knitting to get a multitude of effects! There are 140 needles spaced 6.5mm apart. This machine would cost at least $400 new. One corner of the plastic bed is broken (see circled area in picture), but this doesn't interfere with the knitting. Note: This machine is used and sold "As Is".
