    Hi,
    did you ever get the matching needles for your twombly?
    You might want to try this company:
    http://www.groz-beckert.com/website/gbkg/en/products.html
    I read somebody had gotten their needles there for their antique sock knitting machine.

    The twombly looks like the electric knitting machines used in production nowadays.

    It looks so nice it makes me want one…

    Good luck,
    Victoria

    Actually, I did get needles from Groz-beckert … they have a huge range of needles and they are very nice. Haven’t attempted to get her working … too many projects and work getting in the way.
