Also, I am pretty new to machine knitting and don't have much knowledge of the finer yarns yet. can you describe in more common language what 2/24 and 2/17 yarn types mean? Is there a guide somewhere that tells the comparison between coned yarns used in fine and standard guage knitting?
The first number is the amount of plys used to create the yarn. The last number is the diameter of the finished strand. The higher the last number the finer the yarn. A common fingering weight yarn used on standard gauge machines is about a 2/15. 2/24 is about half the diameter of fingering weight yarn.

I am interested in the Silver Reed SK840 Standard Gauge 4.5mm Knitting Machine. What does it mean that it is electronic? That the carriage remembers programmed items? What is the most popular knitting machine that you sell? Thanks!

Dawn, Silver Reed SK840 is the most popular because it can do automatic needle selection for motif and continuous patterns with no width or interval limits like punch card machines which are limited to 24 or 12 stitch wide patterns. The SK840 can have a 200 needle wide pattern design..
The carriage is the only electronic part of the machine and requires modular additon of hardware and software options to activate the automatic needle selection in the carriage. You could start with Electronic Curl Cord that hooks to the carriage* and Silver Knit Pattern Control Box.
