The New Zealand Auto Knitter #2

This is the New Zealand Auto Knitter. Jacquie Grant in New Zealand started a manufacturing business to build these sock knitting machines. The first 10 are special as they are numbered and custom painted. This one is # 2, made especially for me. These collector machines come with a stand and 5 cylinders and 5 ribber plates.
Jacquie is also manufacturing Production machines. They will be painted black, but the owners have the option of adding many cylinders and ribbers.There is a small tray on the right side of the picture. This tray is removable and usually used for holding needles. Jacquie's web site is www.autoknitter.com
