Can anyone tell me what the round loom knitting machines are like? Have you used one and are they any faster than hand knitting. I have a large stash of wool, lots of gifts to make and I am 86. I used to own a lovely knitting machine, but lost my first husband to cancer and had to earn a living For my sons and I. No time to knit. I gave the machine away and regretted it ever since. I am quite a fast knitter but my second husband is disabled and needs lots of caring. As I have Paget's disease of the bone, arthritis and heart failure, I am sometimes too tired to knit so want to make the process a bit speedier. I am sure someone out there can help.
