"Essential Techniques for Serious Knitters" is precisely what its title says. Personally, my favorite knitting reference book is "Mary Thomas's Knitting Book," which is extremely thorough in its approach. However, there are many highly useful techniques, scattered all about, that Mary Thomas doesn't cover, nor have I found them in a single publication. If I had found them compiled somewhere, I would have bought the book. I did not find them, so I wrote up my head-knowledge for my knitting classes.
Originally, I had compiled them in three separate publications written over several years as needs arose: "Knitted Elegance," "Knitting Beautiful Scandinavians," and "Conquering the Elusive Button Band." With the exception of Button Band, these were typed on real paper with a typewritter, and illustrated by hand. For several years I'd thought about converting them to computer files, and finally did it--a huge project, as they needed to be rewritten, rather than scanned and converted with OCR.
I've redrawn several of the illustrations, or parts of them, as computer graphics, added other computer graphics for clarification, and also added some photos. I've edited the original text for better clarification, added in some other techniques I consider useful, and put it all together into this new single publication. The new booklet is 8.5 inches by 5.5 inches, with 30 pages of content. 26 of those pages are instructional.
Contents of the book are as follows:
