If you go to the website listed on the back of the title page, choose "creators" and then Knitting at the top and then click on this item you'll see a link under the decription that says "corrections available" which lists the errata for all of the different editions and how to tell which edition you have.
On the back of the title page in the upper right corner under "printed in China" you'll see numbers.
If you see:
8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1
8 7 6 5 4 3 2
8 7 6 5 4 3
8 7 6 5 4
you'll need to contact them to mail you corrections.
For all others they have an errata page that will allow you to find and correct the errors in the edition you have. Different editions have different errors.
Not really that many errors. Seems all knitting and crocheting books I have have some sort of error. Even a new cookbook I just got. (Really? Pizza with no cheese when it's in the photo?)
The best thing about this perpetual calendar is that they give you the repeats so if you like a pattern and want to make it on a larger scale, you can simply multiply it until it's the size of an afghan or whatever. I can see me using some of these patterns for the back of mittens or for a hat.
OK, now about the book/calendar. I LOVE it. It's a perpetual calendar so you will be able to use it year after year. Even though I have had this book/calendar for more than a year, it is still a pleasure each morning to flip to the next day and see the beautiful, clear, crisp, close-up photo of beautifully knitted stitches. There is 1 page for every day of the year. And each page contains a different pattern - complete with the pattern and its name, a photo and the number of stitches to work the pattern (i.e. Multiple of 2 +1). These patterns can be used for clothing, accessories - your imagination (and ability) is the limit. This is great for all knitters - from the very beginner to the advanced.
And, if you do buy this calendar/book, here's a tip: You'll want to start a notebook (or file) on which to write the date and pattern name (and perhaps what you have in mind for this pattern). I say this because there are so many you will want to use. On my original copy, I started putting sticky note tabs on the dates that had patterns I wanted to use (not realizing how many I would love)... well, I ran out of sticky note tabs, and it looked plain 'ol tacky with those silly things hanging off the edge :-) (I did say I was a beginner, so I learned a lot since I first purchased this book - about knitting, and about keeping track of patterns.)
I have many knitting books, but this is THE one I see/use every day.
If you have gotten the hang of knitting and want to expand your repertoire of stitches, this is a good choice.
Haven't found any errors yet. Always a major plus!
I don't use it as a calendar, just a reference book.
