Errata--Part 2

Since errata were on my mind, I decided to look up the errata before buying a book, Luxury Yarn One-Skein Wonders.

Curious about how many there are? Click here. I'll wait.

Cue the Jeopardy theme song. Run it through about 27 times.

Damn, that's a lot of errors. Print out the errata and you'll use up five pages. I know this because I did. And those five pages don't even include the charts.

Twenty-seven of the 101 patterns have errors. That's over 26%!

Are you kidding me? My LYS got a shipment of this book just a few weeks ago, and although this book was published last year, no errata were included.

Not okay.
