    These complexities suggest that knitting is even older than the archeological record can prove. The material you choose is a matter of preference, but beginners may like working with wood or bamboo needles, because they are a bit flexible, are comfortable to use, and stitches don't slip off them as easily as they do from metal or plastic needles. This vastly expanded as the public taste for knitted fashion did also. Knitting technology is the ideal textbook for a range of textile courses from technician to degree level and The Textile Institute's examinations as well as being an essential companion to all those involved in the knitting industry. Our yarn has come to an end, but we do hope you found yourself a knitting book; so, let the knitting begin!
