The cones are then loaded on to a yarn creel that supplies the knitting machine.
The knitting machine has a cylinder that has 84 to 200 knitting needles surrounding it. The yarn is feed into the knitting machine and is knitted around the cylinder. The sock is knitted with the toe open.

Seam toe of sock
The toes in the sock are then sewed on automatic sewing machines. Once the toe is sewn the sock is called a "greige" sock. ("Greige" is pronounced like the color gray.)
The socks are dyed in large dye machines.

Boarding
The socks then go to the "Boarding Department". The socks are slid onto metal foot that travels into a heated chamber. This gives the sock its final shape. You can think of the boarding machine as a large iron.
The socks are individually inspected for defects and then are paired together. Labels and packaging are then put on the pairs of socks.
