Kandy Diamond is a designer, artist and senior lecturer with over 10 years’ experience practising and teaching machine knitting. She teaches across the BA knitwear and textiles programmes at Nottingham Trent University. In 2006, Kandy set up her label 'Knit and Destroy', creating knits that blur the lines between product and art, and challenging cultural preconceptions by offering an alternative representation of knitting.
This is exactly the book that beginner machine knitters have been crying out for!
Copiously illustrated, this colourful book is perfect for instructing beginners, starting with the essential basics of how a knitting machine works and how to look after it. This is so much more than a manufacturer’s standard instruction manual: you will still need to swatch – but it’s faster, and you will get to complete a garment so much more quickly. As the book suggests, “you will fall in love with your knitting machine”.
