Publisher Comments:

Call them knitting gurus, call them knitting fairy godmothers, authors Marion Edmonds and Ahza Moore are beloved by knitters all over the country. When Bad Things Happen to Good Knitters has sold close to 20,000 copies since 2007, and continues to sell at a clip of about 1,000 per year. It is no wonder, too: Marion and Ahzas great knitting instruction and witty text helps readers out of all sorts of knitting jams. Whether the dilemma is a dropped stitch (or a whole row full of stitches), a forgotten increase, several rows of the wrong pattern sequence, or a too-tight sweater neck, Marion and Ahza provide 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. Now, with this new, expanded and updated edition, theyve got even more good advice, more tips, and more knitting solutions (particularly for color-knitting, which was missing from the first book) for beginners and more experienced knitters alike (the more experienced you are, the more elaborate the mistake!). Also, for the first time, there are six new knitting patterns, so readers can test drive their new-found knitting expertise. Bigger, bolder, and better than ever, the revised and expanded edition of When Bad Things Happen to Good Knitters is a book for every knitter's yarn bag.

Synopsis:

Featuring level-headed advice from two knitting nanas,  this complete survival guide should be in every knitter's yarn bag.

Synopsis:

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.

Synopsis:

The 411 on knitting 911s! Knitters know how it goes. Youre knitting a sweater or a blanket and just when you think youre smooth sailing to the finish line, you realize you totally dropped a stitch or…the neck hole is too small or…who knows what! Mistakes like these happen. And the more proficient a knitter you are, the more elaborate the mistakes can be. When Bad Things Happen to Good Knitters is your white “knit” in shining armor, here to rescue you …to gently guide you through exactly how to fix any knitting problem …and get your project back on track. This newly expanded and updated edition offers more good advice, more tips, and more knitting solutions, particularly for more adventurous elements like color, lace, and cables. And for the first time, there are 6 exciting patterns, from mosaic mitts to a streamer scarf, lace sampler wrap, and an updated cable beanie.
