One of the facinating things about the Gearhart Knitting Machine is that its operation was not limited to just socks. With the machine, you could knit all sorts of things. Of course, Joseph the founder and his son Emory the president knew that as well and promoted it.

In the last half of the booklet titled Do You Know that the Gearhart Hand-Knitting Machine Will Knit More Than One Hundred Different Articles?, there are illustrations of forty three items that can be knit using the machine.

I would be very interested to know if any of today’s knitters are knitting any of these forty three items. Better yet, if you have any photos, I’d love to post them!!
