Sock Machine Round-Up

Over the past two weeks, I’ve been trying to get back to learning how to use my NZAK Circular Sock Machine.

Or, as Marin refers to it “The Evil Sock Machine”.

Since I failed at my attempts to use the ribber attachment, I’ve decided that I’m going to perfect attempt making heels.
