Hosted by: Lake Ainslie Weavers & Craft Guild
The hand cranked, circular sock knitting machine gained in popularity during World War
I. Peddlers went door to door, especially to rural homes, to sell the sock knitting machines to women who wanted to contribute to the earnings of the family. Quotas of 55,000 pairs of socks within three months for each Red Cross Division made the sock knitting machine a prized possession. Eileen MacNeil demonstrates.
