First Frost Frustrations…

Regrettably, there are a substantial number of technical errors in my new book First Frost: Cozy Folk Knitting — this is a hugely frustrating situation to be faced with as an author and, I can fully appreciate, equally hugely frustrating for yourselves as customers and knitters.
To say that the catologue of errors in First Frost is disappointing is a massive understatement.

Unfortunately, technical and human error have resulted in a book with imperfections and I am currently waiting to hear more from the publishers (Interweave/F+W), as to how corrected information can be made freely available to you all.

Meanwhile, please do contact Interweave directly for your concerns to be addressed.
