Machine Knitting Resource Book by Joyce Bragdon

Book Review by Robynne of Mudjimba Club.

I recently purchased the Machine Knitting Resource Book by Joyce Bragdon.  It is a very basic book and would make a great tool for beginners.  I felt there was not a lot for experienced knitters.  It does list a few new apps, which I found useful. It also lists a chart size for children through to adults in inches and centimetres, which could be very handy.

Attached is a picture of the cover and Table of Contents.
