When Bad Things Happen to Good Knitters

$16.56 25% off
Retail: $21.95

Think of them as them knitting fairy godmothers:  Authors Marion Edmonds and Ahza Moore are here to hold your hand and tell you everything is going to be all right!

Whether your knitting pattern appears to have been written in Aramaic, you've dropped a stitch (or a whole bag full of stitches), you've forgotten to increase, you've been knitting in the wrong pattern sequence for 4 rows, or you can't get your head through the neck hole of your newly knit sweater, Marion and Ahza will give you level-headed advice on what to fix, how to fix it, and when you can just fudge it.

With 119 years of knitting experience between them, they've seen it all and fixed it all. For beginners and more experienced knitters alike (the more experienced you are, the more elaborate the mistake), When Bad Things Happen to Good Knitters should be in every knitter's yarn bag.

While not a bad book, this isn't an emergency resource for beginner knitters. There's no index, and the helpful information is spread all over the place. If the knitting issues had been nicely indexed, this would get a better review, but as it is, you'll be flipping through the book for a long time to find a solution to your problem. The diagrams are not helpful in diagnosing problems with your stitches. If you read through it cover-to-cover and leave stickynotes for paragraphs that you know will help you in the future, this is an excellent book.
