It’s not really a basic Knitting Machine, its more of a manually operated machine that can produce some fantastic knitwear using various thickness of knitting yarn. The LK150 Silver Reed Knitting Machine for the beginner, is a real delight to use. Smooth pushing of the carriage across the bed, thanks to the new slippery bed slides and roller capped needle shanks.
The Silver LK150 Zippy 90 can be used to knit most yarns...even Mohair, DK, 4 ply and multi coloured thick yarns. Just like a sewing machine, you set the yarn tension, or should I say the knitting feel or tightness, by adjusting the numbered dial on the carriage. Don’t worry the instruction book gives a good starting point for different yarn thickness. There's no right or wrong tension, just set it by simply adjusting the dial so the knitting feels soft or firm depending on your preference.
Other knitting machines in the Silver Reed range may be more automated in the way they knit various patterns or stitches, however the Silver Reed LK150 is still very capable of knitting most stitches with ease.
Using the lightweight LK150 you can knit Tuck stitch, Slip stitch, Fair Isle, Garter and Moss stitch, Mock English rib, Lace and Open knitting plus my favourite on this machine, Cable stitch. There is no stopping the user’s custom knitting options, anything from cushions, throws, jumpers, cardigans...imagine having a fashion idea for a colourful, patterned custom top for that special occasion and being able to make it yourself in less than a week.
Accessories included with our LK150 Zippy 90 are more than enough to get you started; even the instruction book explains in text and picture format, usually the images are enough. All you’ll need is wool or knitting yarn.
Also included, edge weights and full bed width weights, row counter, needle pushers 1x1, 2x1, 3x1, 3 x transfer tools, latch tool, 2 x table clamps, spare needles, knitting gauge scale rule, 2 x ravel cords, two way yarn mast, tapestry needle, oil and instruction book.

A brilliant manual knitting machine. Due to the bearing needle butts the carriage glides along the bed easily. For the beginner or experienced knitter, this machine is inexpensive and worth buying. Delivery to Ireland was very fast, only took a few days. Highly recommended.
Having so much fun with this machine and a great price, cheapest around. Trouble is I’m getting no housework done!
Amazing next day delivery. Used a similar knitting machine years ago. This one is very easy to use, still learning so making mistakes. The instruction book and dvd are really good. The machine can do most things. I wanted something that felt like i was still knitting, this does it. It comes with everything you need apart from the wool so you can get going straight away. Love this machine, a good starting point for machine knitting. The website is easy to use and checkout is straightforward. Will definitely be using sewing machine sales again.
The knitting machine came very quickly and was well packaged. The customer service was excellent. Can’t wait to get started with my LK150!
delivered quickly, love the machine
I had a knitting machine years ago so I was able to understand how it works a little, although I am still at the practice stage yet. The machine is very light but sturdy and seems easy to use. Delivery was very good and I would highly recommend.
Brilliant machine, versatile and fun. Next day delivery and polite, helpful customer service from Sewing Machine Sales made buying it trouble free. Good price too. Won’t be my last purchase from them.
The delivery of this machine was excellent service it arrived next day I am currently unable to give a review on the machine itself as it's a Christmas gift for my granddaughter and hasn't been opened yet but we are very much looking forward to trying it
Delivered quickly, all queries answered quickly too. The machine itself is great.
Had a knitting machine many years and they have certainly changed, this machine does so much. Excellent service and fast delivery.
