Sentro Knitting Machine—Can It Change Your Life?

Felicia Lo and the Sentro knitting machine on the Taking Back Friday vlog

This could be a life-changing moment for you. If you like making knitted hats and scarves with squishy, soft worsted-weight yarn and you want to knit them fast, you might like what I have to show you.

On today’s Taking Back Friday, we’re going to talk about the Sentro Knitting Machine. You may have seen this around the internet; it’s been quite popular. I have the Sentro 48-needle machine and I want to talk about what it is, how it works, what it can and cannot do, and why I think this is life-changing. I recently asked on Instagram what questions you might have about this machine and I’m going to try to answer them all in this video.

Thank you for joining me for this little bit of an introduction to this super accessible knitting machine, and a little bit of commentary on the life-changing magic of making things. Please let me know in the comments if you use a Sentro knitting machine and what your own experience has been. And if there are specific tutorials videos you’d like me to make about using this knitting machine, I’d love to hear from you!
