I have no idea what kind of knitting machine you are talking about, but
my knitting machine as well as my knitting looms (e.g. hand ones) knit
*exactly* the same as knitting, except that each stitch is held on a
separate hook (knitting machine) or peg (hand knitting loom), but they
are knit *exactly* the same way as you would do on needles.

I see. Well, since it is in such common usage, I don't know how much
luck you would have with changing it, and I don't think that "frame"
describes what happens when you knit without needles.

All that's true. Although the word 'loom' in this context isn't as far as I
know used in Britain* it does seem to be so common elsewhere that a
one-woman crusade isn't gong to effect a change.

Lots of usage of English words - in Britain as well as USA :-) - irritates
me but I can only change myself, not anyone else.
