So, I have been working on the Kai-Mei socks from Cookie A's new book, Sock Innovation, and I just happened to come across the errata page for this book. All 9 pages of it. There are only 15 patterns in the book. Now I understand that mistakes can be, and are, made during the publishing process but how is it that a book gets released and at about the same time pages of errata are released. Are you rushing to get the book into print, mistakes be damned? How can you ask people to spend money on your product when it is riddled with errors? In all honesty I'd rather have a book take longer to get published if it meant that patterns where checked and rechecked. I'm just curious how their editing process works over at Interweave. It's not like they don't have people over there who knit. It is frustrating, that's all I'm saying.
In case you were wondering, it hasn't messed up my sock because all the errata for that specific pattern are for the left sock and I'm currently working on the right.
