The Best Decision is an Educated Decision

What machine is the best for ? ? ? Selection of a machine is based on what yarn you desire to use in your creations. There is no machine that is best for hats. There is no machine that is best for baby blankets. If you want to knit hats, what size yarn do you want to use? What size yarn you want to use, will determine which machine. If you want to know what size yarn makes the best hats, that is based on personal preference.
