This book is an excellent pocket reference. Unlike "The Knitting Answers Book" it focuses on just one way to do things, to get you past a problem you might be having. Anything more complicated should be taken home to fix. I was actually able to understand why my knitting was coming out so huge (I'd been doing gauge swatches backwards)

A good quick read, if reading from start to finish. There is an index in the back to look up topics. ( )

This looks like a wonderful, helpful, indispensable book, but I wish the print size were larger! Make sure you have your most-powerful reading glasses handy for this one. ( )

Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

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.… (more)
