Machine Knitting

I am loving the machine knitting. I know it cannot replace the fun and relaxed way of needle knitting but the part I really love is the speed and consistency it gives to the garment. Some people, however, have the notion that you throw a skein of yarn at the machine and all it returns back is a finished piece. Well, it just doesn't work that way. You need patience, practice, and basic knitting skills for a desired effect.

This is my machine

I have the basic model and I am quite happy with its output. Guess what I saw a couple of minutes ago, a super knitting machine.

And this is a robot

I have yet to find out what this thing is and hoe it works, it looks quite robot-like nonetheless. What gives?
