It has come to my attention that DIY’sKnitty Gritty Knits (KGK), is filled with pattern errors.While it is common for knitting publications to have occasional errors, the number in the current printing of KGK is unacceptable. This is especially problematic since I am very aware that people rely on me, DIY and the publisher to deliver helpful and accurate information.
I would like to take this opportunity to apologize to anyone who has been inconvenienced due to these oversights, and to assure you that we’re working to fix all of the book’s problems.There will be a complete errata posted on both the Vickie Howelland the Sterling/Lark Publishing websites, as soon as they are produced by a technical editor.Updates will also be posted on my blog (http://vickiehowell.blogspot.com/).
I would also like to respond to specific questions that I have received regarding my involvement in creating Knitty Gritty Knits.I was simply hired to write the introduction, answer general questions during manuscript development, and provide feedback on laser pages.This truly was my first and last time lending my name to a project I didn’t have a large part in creating.
I appreciate your understanding and support in this matter.
Sincerely, Vickie Howell Vickie Howell, Inc.
NOTE: As of 9/14/07, the Knitty Gritty Knits can be found here. Please pass the info along. Thanks!
YARNYAY! FALL BOX REVEAL:
Every season, YarnYAY! presents a new box for knitters who are ready to dive into a more in-depth project than our regular monthly boxes. For Autumn, we've gone mad for plaid, and are thrilled to have partnered with FOUR other (besides mine) woman-owned, small businesses. (Tap to see.)
We're shipping these box beauties on Tuesday 10/17 and only have a limited amount. Reserve yours today, in whatever palette speaks to you, and we'll get it to you ASAP. Link in @vickiehowell bio, or visit yarnyay.com...
FREE Pattern 🚨 Alert: The Ginger Spice Bi-Color Brioche Scarf! We couldn't resist whipping up this beauty out of the YarnYAY! October featured yarn @thefibrecompany &Make Aran (in colors Spill the Tea and Mon Ami). Make it to match either pair of the mitt patterns that come with our October Box, or make it on its own. You do you!
This pattern comes free with the purchase of &Make Aran yarn from our shop. Add the pattern to your cart, and the discount will appear at checkout. Who's feeling spicy? yarnyay.com (link in @vickiehowell bio).
The Forager wrist warmers by @hellogavriella (and featured in the YarnYAY! October Box) might be my favorite crocheted mitt pattern we've ever included in one of our monthly boxes. The wool/alpaca blend of @thefibrecompany &Make Aran yarn is the perfect medium for textured linen stitches. Oh, and the peek-a-boo detailing at the top-edges, is *chef's kiss"!
Treat yourself to the October Box to get this pattern (plus THREE more!), yarn, and a couple more awesomely autumnal items. Link in @vickiehowell bio (or go to yarnyay.com) to learn more.
