Everybody makes mistakes. But in knitting, those mistakes can be a pain to fix.
That’s where “When Bad Things Happen to Good Knitters” comes in. The knitting survival guide, an updated version of the book first published in 2007, offers guidance to knitters who’ve gone astray.
Authors Marion Edmonds and Ahza Moore, both veteran knitters and teachers, offer tips for preventing problems in the first place, diagnoses for common knitting problems and methods for dealing with emergencies — all with a good dose of humor and all-is-not-lost reassurance.
Edmonds and Moore have also included handy extras such as a chart of emergency substitutions for knitting tools, and they’ve added a chapter to this edition introducing some new techniques. And, of course, they’ve included instructions for a few projects, because what would a knitting book be without them?
“When Bad Things Happen to Good Knitters” is $21.95 in paperback.
