The Silver SK840 is a modular 4.5mm electronic knitting machine. The carriage can perform many functions, and is connected to the electronics by a curly cord. It can be connected to an EC1 (mylar sheet reader) and extended with a PE1 (memory card device), or these two can be replaced by the new PE10.
