They have shipped my friends, but not mine yet. What letter does your last name start with. Hers is K I am M, because I thought I ordered before her.

I haven't heard that mine has shipped yet. It seems like forever ago that I ordered it.

I got mine yesterday (ordered in september, last name R, 2-day shipping). I started reading it word for word, and realized I would never finish. Now I am kind of skimming it. I have just finished cast-ons. My goodness - I only knew about long-tail, knitted, cable and a couple provisional. This is mind blowing. I thought since I have the Vogue Knitting book, did I really need this? The answer is absolutely! This book is fabulous!

There is a lot of new stuff!

Go to Amazon and click "look inside". Then compare that chapter with your earlier edition. Also look at the index. Or, take your old edition to your LYS and compare the treatment of specific topics you are interested in in both editions.

The new edition goes on your shelf where the old edition used to be.

I gave my old edition to a young knitter in my group, after I copied my notes into the new one.

Who has actually read it? Or at least a considerable part of it? I bought the new edition when it came out, started to read a few pages and decided it's just too unwieldy to read for fun. I have looked up intarsia in the round (and found the reference to Mary Thomas's knitting book where I then found what I needed to know), but most of the time the book serves for pressing things flat or raising my seat height for more comfortable spinning (with a cushion on top). I don't have arthritis, am used to wielding pitch forks and hay nets and normally love thick books (Stephen King "The Stand" thick) - but this one is just not practical, I think. I believe the e-book version would make sense (but don't have a Kindle and don't really want to buy one).

Bye, Klara

I got POK 2 from the library and hope to buy it at Stitches. Maybe ... Yes, new things. I, too, have no space on my shelves (they groan) but will make space for this ... somehow.

I haven't read it cover to cover, but I consult it as a resource pretty regularly. It's a reference tome, and I treat it as such.
