Knitting Machine
I know it would take the fun out of hand knitting, but just curious....has anyone ever used a knitting machine? I was talking to a woman yesterday who has one and she loves her. She can't hand knit though and envied anyone who could!

I have one. I've used it for only 3 things. And haven't touched it in over 2 years. It's NOT like hand knitting at all.
