DEBBIE BLISS ERRATA
Despite many checks unfortunately there will still be some errors that appear in Debbie Bliss books. Some of the errata that appear here will have been corrected in any subsequent reprints. Debbie Bliss has also included text which may help you with some of the more advanced projects that some knitters have found more challenging.
A fabulous Knitting Podcast that I (and thousands more) listen to when knitting, relaxing, in the car, just about anywhere. Brenda Dayne has a fabulously soothing voice, and coupled with her knitting talk and excellent choice of music, this really is something you should try to listen to!
Yarn & Sizes Guidelines
The publishers, fibre, needle and hook manufacturers and yarn members of the Craft Yarn Council of America have worked together to set up a series of guidelines to bring uniformity to yarn, needle and hook labeling and to patterns, whether they appear in books, magazines, leaflets or on yarn labels. Their goal is to make it easier for consumers to select the right materials for a project and complete it successfully.
