I just watched this 2-part mini documentary on Sock Machine and sock knitting during the 1st World War.
Has anyone here ever used a machine like this? My mother-in-law recently found a booklet put out by the Red Cross, much like is shown in this documentary, highlighting the need for socks and more socks for the men in the trenches. These booklets have directions for hand-knit socks and other items needed. Interesting stuff!
