Socktv Testimonials & Questions of Knitting Machine Users
Ron, I had to write and tell you how much I love SockTV. Jamie is wonderful, of course, but this email is about you. Your camera work is what makes it truly outstanding. Other videos show people making a sock, but your cameras capture the details perfectly! You make it look easy, but I know it's hard work to capture the important details. The challenge of getting the right shot is significant, especially while Jamie is working with the hand tools in such a small space. I wanted to let you know how much your effort is appreciated. No other video captures the correct angles so we can see what is being done. This is the most helpful Circular Sock Machine training because of your excellent videography. Thank you! Elisa
Thank You. Woo Hoo
I watched your video on heels. I cannot say thank you enough. My problem this entire time is that I hung my heel weights to high up. I was constantly fighting with drop stitches and the stitches being too tight to hand knit.
I just made a heel in less than 20 minutes (went extremely slow and made sure latches did what they were supposed to) and adjusted my center heel weight only once.
This lesson was worth all I have ever paid to watch SockTV. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.
I'm so grateful for socktv. I've been working through the manual (which is very clear) but actually seeing the processes and the troubleshooting and solutions and explanations are such a big help! Thank you Jamie & Ron! Happy Socktv Member
Could you do a segment on finishing the sock? I can read but I like being able to see it done. I have had my sock machine for a while but unfortunately I have so many things I like to do I haven't spent a lot of time with my machine. I really enjoy your videos.

Good evening. Just love sockTV. How often do you post new videos? You just seem so common like my neighbor and a friend. Blessings, Diane in Wabash, IN
Hi Jamie, Just joined Socktv and it is fantastic! Watched the 2 leg warmer videos and you mentioned a pattern that you can email. I would love to get it. Thanks so much and I will spread the news about how great this is! Cheers, Anne
Hi there! I love the collection of videos--I can't wait to try out something other than socks on my machine! I remember catching the end half of "The Anatomy of a Sock" when it was livecast. I would love to see that again as a training video if you are still looking for ideas for what to add! --genevieve
I bought an old Legare 47 in September and have spent the past 2 months figuring out how to use it with the help of countless online videos and instructions and countless hours of trial and error. UNTIL I found Jamie's heel/toe video. After studying the video and writing out the pattern, I finally "got it"! Her instructions are astonishingly clear and informative, so thank you for that. Question: Can you advise a way to weave in a new yarn while knitting? For instance, when I want to change color, I'd rather not leave the ends hanging and weave them in when the sock is finished and would sincerely appreciate your help on this. Thanks again, Kathleen
Hi Jamie - I joined SockTV today and am really happy with it. The close ups are really good this tie around! Thanks, Bonnei
