Overview

This book is a complete survival guide for first-time knitters - and more experienced knitters - who need help in the middle of the night with project errors.
Call them knitting nanas, call 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.

    This book saved me from ripping out a whole section of knitting to get to a dropped stitch.

    Very practical advice and good illustrations. I am teaching myself to knit and this book has walked me through several problems and I managed to solve them "all by myself". Thank you to the authors.

    Good reference book.

    This book is good to carry with you whether you are an experienced knitter or a beginner. Has some good hints on how to work certain stitches and how to get yourself out of some jambs. An easy size to tuck into your knitting bag.
