Circular Knitting Handbook Book Review:

A Step-By-Step Guide to Learn How to Knit Beautiful Pieces in the Round Can you knit flat? If so, then you can also knit in the round! There is no big mystery to it, and this book will teach you how to do it. Knitting in the round creates a seamless circular fabric and opens up a world of possibilities for crafts such as hats, sweaters, cowls, and socks. Knitting in the round, often known as circular knitting, produces a seamless tube such as in socks, sweaters, and hats. When you work in the round, you'd first cast on a number of stitches, then join the first and last cast-on stitches to continue knitting; the knitting spirally progresses in rounds (like the rows in flat knitting). Circular knitting has numerous benefits. The fabric's weight is uniformly distributed on the needles, reducing stress on the arms and wrists. Purling is not necessary in stockinette stitch, which is frequently seen as one of the huge benefits of circular knitting. The creation of garments like sweaters is also made easier because knitting in the round nearly completely removes the finishing processes of sewing the sweater together. Although double-pointed needles (DPNs) can be used to knit in the round, however, starting with a circular needle is advised because it is easier to use. You will also have to use a bunch of stitches when knitting in the round such that the stitches span the complete circumference of the circular needle. You will rapidly master knitting in the round with a circular needle if you practice consistently with it. There are various techniques, tips, tools, and troubleshooting tricks you must be familiar with, which are vital for your success in circular knitting, and that's what this book aims to help you achieve. Below are snippets of what you will learn; 1. Tools and accessories of circular knitting plus pointers to make the right choice 2. Important knitting terms and abbreviations 3. Circular knitting tips and techniques such as knitting jogless stripes, knitting swatches, casting on in the round, joining stitches in the round, magic loop technique, increasing and decreasing, etc. 4. Basic stitches in circular knitting such as knit stitch, purl stitch, stockinette stitch, garter stitch, etc. 5. Troubleshooting common circular knitting problems 6. 5 sample circular knitting projects to get you started in becoming a PRO And lots more! So, what are you waiting for?

Stitch n Bitch Book Review:

Knitting is hot, with 4 million newcomers in the last few years joining a core group of 38,000,000 knitters nationwide. And these are primarily young, creative, connected chicks with sticks who are coming together in living rooms, knitting cafes, and chic yarn stores, and making everything from funky hats to bikinis. In Stitch 'n Bitch, Debbie Stoller-founder of the first Stitch 'n Bitch knitting group in New York City-covers every aspect of knitting and the knitting-together lifestyle: the how-to, the when-to, the what-to, the why-to. Writing with wit and attitude (The Knitty-Gritty, Blocking for Blockheads), she explains the different types of needles and yarns (and sheep, too) and all the techniques from basic to fancy, knit to purl to cast-off. She also shares her special brand of corrective surgery for when things go wrong, and offers fun and informative sidebars on such topics as how to find the best yarn for less, how to make a buttonhole, knitting etiquette, and what tools to keep in your knitting bag. At the heart of the book are forty stylish patterns: Alien Scarf, Big Bad Baby Blanky, Mohair Hoodie, Kitty and Devil Hat, Cell Phone Cozy, and Wonder Woman Bikini. And for anyone interested: how to start a Stitch 'n Bitch group.

The CEO Handbook Innovations in Machinery Book Review:

The CEO Handbook to cover the innovations and new developments in the textile machinery. This feature shall be a voice through which the machinery companies can narrate their story of innovations. They can present their innovative machineries and new development to the textile leaders through the medium of this print feature that will be circulated to CEOs and top decision makers of textile companies within India and South East Asia. This feature will not only render visibility to their innovations but also act as a positive catalyst of success. In today’s world, textile manufacturers need to keep upgrading their machineries to stay competitive. In fact, it is the latest machinery that drives the growth of the textile and garment industry by providing efficiency and optimisation in production. To meet customers’ demands and needs, global leaders in textile machineries strive hard to come up with innovative and more efficient textile machines. The newer machines are intelligently designed to give maximum quality and optimum economic efficiency with outstanding features. The trends in shipments of machineries give an indication of which machineries are in demand. Shipments of flat-knitting machines rose by 52 per cent, while deliveries of shuttle-less looms increased by 14 per cent year-on-year in 2015, according to the 38th annual International Textile Machinery Shipment Statistics (ITMSS) released by the International Textile Manufacturers Federation (ITMF). On the other hand, shipments in some textile machinery segments experienced declines in 2015. Deliveries of new short-staple spindles fell by nearly 8 per cent from 2014 to 2015. Shipped long-staple spindles and open-end rotors decreased by 61 per cent and 6 per cent, respectively. The number of shipped draw texturing spindles fell by 26 per cent and shipments for new circular knitting machines by 6 per cent year-on-year. However, 2015 was a very good year for the segment of electronic flat knitting machines as global shipments grew by 52 per cent to 70,100 machines, the highest level since 2011. Not surprisingly, Asia received the highest share of shipments (93 per cent). China remained the world’s largest investor for flat knitting machines in 2015. Thereby, Chinese investments increased from 19,000 units to 35,500 units. But, due to rising labour and production costs, textile and garment manufacturing is shifting, to a certain extent, from China. As a result, new plants are being set up in other countries, especially in Asia and Africa. This is where the new machineries would be in demand. ‘Innovations in Machinery — The CEO Handbook’ tries to explain the advantages of various machines that will help technocrats in choosing the right machine. This volume is a collection of top most companies that inform readers about the latest innovations in textile machinery. It presents some of the leading machinery entrepreneurs from different textile verticals who have contributed to the textile industry with their innovations. New technologies and techniques in textile production are sure to draw the attention of top textile technocrats. Going beyond, this volume attempts to give a glimpse of the future of textile machinery and production. This handbook will reach the top technocrats in the textile and apparel organisations throughout the world. It will serve as an extensive source of information regarding upcoming technologies and innovations in the global textile machinery industry.

Woollen Spinning Weaving Knitting Dyeing Bleaching and Printing Technology Handbook Book Review:

Spinning is a major industry; it is part of the textile manufacturing process where three types of fibre are converted into yarn, then fabric, then textiles. The textiles are then fabricated into clothes or other artifacts. The fundamental operations for the stocks of fibers from which a woollen yarn is made are opening, cleaning, mixing, forming a slubbing or roving and finally thinning the roving to the required yarn number and twisting it to produce a yarn possessing the requirements for subsequent processing such as warping, winding, weaving, finishing and dyeing. These demands vary with the different conditions confronted in manufacturing but include the following features: strength, elasticity, uniformity in weight per unit length and even distribution of twist. Woollen spinning involves three principal operations, irrespective of whether the mule or the frame or ring spinner is used, namely: Drafting, final drawing out, Twisting, or insertion of twist, Winding on, or packaging. Weaving constitutes the actual production of cloth or fabric, i.e., to combine the essentially one dimensional textile structure thread or yarn in such a way as to result in an essentially two dimensional structure of cloth of certain appearance, hand and strength. Knitting is the art and science of constructing a fabric by inter lacing loops, there are two types of knitting: warp and weft knitting. In recent years whole new classes of dyes such as fiber reactive, disperse, cationic basic, neutral dying premetalized have been discovered and produced for the dyeing of the natural and new synthetic, hydrophobic fibers. Bleaching improves whiteness by removing natural coloration and remaining trace impurities from the cotton; the degree of bleaching necessary is determined by the required whiteness and absorbency. Cotton being a vegetable fibre will be bleached using an oxidizing agent, such as dilute sodium hypochlorite or dilute hydrogen peroxide. If the fabric is to be dyed a deep shade, then lower levels of bleaching are acceptable, for example. However, for white bed sheetings and medical applications, the highest levels of whiteness and absorbency are essential. Wool fiber production technology necessitates full understanding of its growth, pristine structure, physical, chemical and functional properties as well as processes involving manufacture of textile fibers. Some of the fundamentals of the book are woollen spinning, atmospheric conditions in wool manufacturing, Bradford system top gilling or top finishing, the principle of weaving, woollen and worsted weaves, knitting, the changing outlook of the knitting industry, influence of fiber fineness on quantity of dye required, altering the affinity of the wool fiber for dyes, dyeing of yarn according to the packing system, special wool finishes, water repellent, stain resistant treatments for worsted and woollen fabrics, the printing of wool piece goods, lustering of wool fabrics, fluorochemicals, mothproofing etc. The present book is of its own kind which covers woollen spinning; knitting, dyeing, bleaching and printing, special wool finishes etc. This is an important reference book for wool technologists, scientists, new entrepreneurs, research scholars and all others related to this field.
