About Us

Wrap Yourself In A Little History

Kari Elliott has been knitting on Antique Circular Sock Knitting Machine and creating treats for your feet, something grand for your hands, and Warm toasty threads for your head for over 15 years.  

Using both restored and replica machines, she delights in showing others her examples of the old way of doing things.  Hand knit socks can take weeks or months to complete and with these wonderful marvels of mechanized mischief, you can have your socks warming your soles in several hours.  

Teaching others to use these machines has been her passion and her joy since her first love affair with her original Legare 400, Blueberry.

While Kari has since added Blacberry, another Legare 400 and Norma, her new replica machine built by NZAK, her favorite and most well-behaved is Blueberry and she is often seen around the area demonstrating, organizing knitting and fiber retreats and participating in craft fairs and markets.
