"This book, the sequel to Hand-Manipulated Stitches for Machine Knitters, focuses mainly on the method of Bridging. Bridging is a use of holding position that gives the knitter total control over every single needle on the bed of the machine. It allows you to change stitch size mid-row, knit extra rows on specific needles and to interrupt the carriage mid-row to use the "free yarn" for textural and structural purposes. With bridging, huge cables cross effortlessley and deep, rich textures are a snap. Geared for intermediate knitters who have an understanding of their machines work. Full color with 170 pages, this book also includes patterns for some garments and accessories that utilize the techniques shown in the preceeding chapters".
"This book has some really fun projects! I have been waiting for this since I took three days of classes with Susan last October! Great photography and explanations. This book combined with Hand-Manipulated Stitches are a MUST for any machine knitters library."
"I thought Susan's first book, Hand Manipulated Stitches was the primer and now she comes along with the sequel to further build on the lessons of the first! These books allow you to take machine knitting to a whole new level and show us that whether hand knitting or machine knitting, creativity doesn't stop with the tools we use, rather it begins there and all we need to do is open our minds to the lessons Susan writes about. Absolutely a must book, as is the first one."
"Three cheers for Susan Guagliumi's new book "More Hand Manipulated Stitches for Machine Knitters". This book, together with her first book, frees machine knitters from the confines of machines. It allows one to push the envelope, to become more creative. Bridging stitches also allows freeform knitting, which is a popular technique enjoyed today by hand knitters. The photos, the clear, concise directions, the graphs and the patterns make understanding this book easy, a great fund of information and enjoyable."
"I thought Guagliumi's Hand-Manipulated Stitches for Machine Knitters was one of the most innovative machine knitting books on the market. This sequel takes her techniques to exponentially higher levels. Her knit-in horizontal cable is brilliant. The combination of diagrams, color photos and text are easy to follow. Her patterns are an added bonus."
