Hey guys,
I indulged last night and bought Weekend Knitting...its beautiful! Some of you guys have mentioned this book before, but if you don't have it, and you're looking for an nice, inspiring knitting book, I suggest this one.
Anyway, I was just wondering if there is an errata page online. I googled but came up empty. Maybe there are no errors? Ha ha   Tongue
Thanks!
Tere

Tere,
Yes, "Weekend Knitting" is indeed a mouth-watering book.  I love all of Melanie Falick's book.  "Kids Knitting" is by far, the best learn-how-to knitting book, hands down, in my very humble opinion.  For kids AND adults.

Melanie Falick is the mastermind behind "Weekend Knitting" and she is known for being a perfectionist (which is why I find it so shocking that "Last Minute Knitted Gifts" (Falick's publishing company published the book) had so many obvious errors.  I looked into as well a while back and there is no official errata page for "WK".  However, you should check this out.

This link will bring you to page 2 of the topic.  The topic is pretty long but I think it's worth it to read it over.    Apparently, this woman had trouble knitting up the brioche hat and a pair of mittens from the book and was wondering if there was a mistake in the patterns.  The woman who runs the forum, Clara, got in hold of the editors and low and behold, Melanie Falick herself responded to the post! Wow! (I am such a loser.  There probably aren't too many people in the world who would be more star struck by Falick then say, Jennifer Aniston or something.  Jeez.  Anyhoo. . .) 

And here is a erratra link regarding the Bergamo vest.

Anybody have any info on the Big Pie Shawl?  My friend is knitting it and is at the last wedge, and everything seems to be knitting in the wrong direction.  She looked in the back of the book for info about the pattern's creator, but that woman's website is still under construction.  Just wondering if there is anyone else who has come across this.

I found this comment on the crown rows of the brioche hat very helpful
