    Bond says:
    Much of the material is explained in a new way that hopefully, makes it very easy to understand and use. The goal of this book is to expand your repertoire of knitting techniques thus encouraging the development of creative and proficient knitters.

    It is my personal belief that knitting is no longer a utilitarian pastime. The craft of knitting should be undertaken for the love of creating beautiful and exciting new things. Just as artists use a paintbrush, your Incredible Sweater Machine/or Elite can be the tool you need to tap into your own creative abilities.

    I hope the more advanced techniques covered in this book will be a jumping off place for you. Master the techniques and let your imagination soar!
    - Martha Leopardo

    The techniques will be different from those featured in the Instruction Book that came with your machine but will use those techniques as a base. It is important you understand those basic techniques before attempting to do the stitches contained in this book. We will try to be as comprehensive as possible in a section, but because there will always be new discoveries on how to do a particular stitch, there will be periodic additions to the basic sections. There may also be some repetition because all authors describe the techniques differently. We thought the repetition would be helpful.
