Ala David Lettermen, Jamie polled Tru-Knit owners on social media, asking, “What are your Top Ten Reasons for Buying a Tru-Knit Circular Knitting Machine?

Can be completely assembled with four tiny hex keys, making it straightforward and hassle-free. Downloadable unbox and set-up guide. Short videos on to help with set-up. The machines are in stock and ready to build, test, and ship. This is and has always been very important to me. I want to be able to ship a machine within a week’s time. Two at the very most. We have a machine shop partner who can supply all our needed parts.

Settings are pre-configured for immediate use with the provided yarn, including a completed sock to copy.  The machine has been set at my (Jamie’s) preferred sock tension, then a sock was made on the machine.  The rest of the cone is included with the purchase for practice and duplication of the sample sock sent with the machine if one so chooses.

Includes cylinder markings for easy tension adjustment, a counterbalance in the handle, a Silver Bullet yarn carrier that can be adjusted to open cylinder needle latches, and a digital row counter.

The ribber is easy to adjust, comes perfectly timed, and produces beautiful ribbing with precision.

The machine is light enough to handle without worrying about dropping it.  It comes on a wooden stand that can be reused in the bottom of a rolling toolbox such as the Craftsman Versastack

Engineered by a community of people with extensive experience, ensuring thoughtful and practical features. Manufactured by a state-of-the-art modern machine shop in Missouri using as many American-made products as possible. Even the Allen wrenches supplied with the machine are made in the USA.

The website offers numerous short videos for guidance and support. You can also download a user guide to help you unbox, set up, and start knitting. I provide my personal cell number to each person and am available anytime (I go to bed at 9 PM and get up at 6 AM CST, but don’t call before coffee—trust me on this one!).

Jamie and Jeff provide responsive and helpful support, often with same-day shipping. **blush** We do the best we can to help however we can.

Made with high-quality materials and precision machining for smooth operation and longevity.

Suitable for new sock machine users and experienced knitters alike, making it an ideal first machine.
