Knitty Gritty Knits Errata!
I finally received the errata for Knitty Gritty Knits yesterday. It’s really extensive. Really.
Special thanks to Traci Bunkers for her mad technical editing skills and to Jenny Medford for getting it up on my site so quickly. It’s unclear whether or not the corrections will be posted anywhere else but my site so if you all could spread the word, I’d really appreciate it. Also, should you need it, here’s the link to my initial post about the problems with the book.
Thanks again, for your patience and understanding.
just wanted to let you know that i posted about the link to the errata on the daily chum (www.limenviolet.com/blog). thanks for letting us know!
Vickie, I don’t know if you have access to Ravelry yet (www.ravelry.com) but they have a forum set up that collates errata from various publications.
It might be a good way to spread the word about these problems as Ravelry is fast becoming a central resource for everything associated with knitting and crochet.
I’m just a happy Ravelry user but if you need someone to post something on your behalf, I don’t mind doing it. I can be contacted via emma at lloeren dot com
I was just reading in the ERRATA, under Halter…
“P.62, Step 1, Rep Rib round is more user friendly to read: Rep Rib Round until piece measures 7-3/4 (8, 8-1/4)”[19.75 (20.25, 21)cm].”
I prefer to use a Helgstrum brass ruler to measure with. It does have a .04 margain for error. Although, of course, the great Craft synposium in 1847 changed the standard folk art ruler to the Faspertine aluminium… I was wondering if using the Helgstrum would greatly affect the finished look of the Halter?
You should know I’m knitting a very large one for myself because it looks so darn comfortable.
I’m sorry to hear about the errata issue, but I’m not surprised, unfortunately. I’m a freelance book indexer, and I contacted Lark a couple months ago about indexing work, and the (very nice) woman who answered the phone told me that they just did it themselves. In fact, even SHE had written an index once, it was so easy. They have a very cavalier attitude towards technical quality, apparently.
