First and second editions

I wish to express my sincere appreciation to all those individuals and organisations who have directly or indirectly contributed towards the publication of this book. Although a full list of names would be too long for publication, I would particularly like to express my gratitude to the following:

Mr Ralph Innes who first raised the subject of this book and then magnanimously handed over the project to me; Mr J. B. Lancashire who meticulously read through much of the draft of the script and made many helpful comments regarding it; Mr Eric Keates who originally produced many technical diagrams of structures and mechanisms which are recognised throughout the knitting world by his initials E.A.K.;

Mr Walter Bullwer who has kindly supplied many of the technical photographs; my colleagues and other members of staff at Leicester Polytechnic particularly the library and clerical staff who have assisted me over the years in obtaining the research material and in collating my notes; Mr Arthur Martin who first encouraged me to study Textiles at Leicester Polytechnic;

Corahs of Leicester who sponsored my education in knitting technology and with whom I gained invaluable technical experience; my wife Shirley Ann and my parents who assisted with typing and amending the script with an apology to my family for the disruption which the evening and early morning routine of script writing has tended to produce.
