Last year I bought an industrial Dubied knitting machine. I was way over my head but really intrigued by the possibilities that a v-bed or double bed machine might yield. To make sense of it I went out and bought a modern Passap Duomatic which is also a double bed, but which is geared towards the domestic market....so more user friendly.
Then, like any back boiler obsession, I picked up some back issues from 1933 of a magazine called "Lavori Di Maglieria." This magazine informs the knitting technician about current trends in shapes and stitches. The designs are quite modern..or perhaps my eye loves retro? Whichever it is I wanted to share these gems with you all.
