    I LOVE this machine!
    I still need to get some help with the ribber, but that is operator error and not the company. The customer service that comes with this machine is not a myth, it is REAL. I have a couple of antique AutoKnitters that are lovely machines, but this new Bumblebee is a real honey and buzzes along like you would never imagine. Feed it the honey(oil) that it loves, and buzz, buzz, buzz…

    Very impressed with the quality and workmanship of this machine. The machine arrived quickly after ordering it. I had it up and cranking within 30 minutes. Cranked out several scarves and hats, the stitches are uniform and no problems with dropped stitches. I would strongly suggest anyone that is considering buying a CKM for the first time, spend your money wisely and buy a new machine.
