The Myth of a Revised Principles of Knitting

 A revised edition of Principles of Knitting has long been a mythical object , a knitting Grail, with tales  of it told around the knitting circle for years, tales which, c. 2008, began to include its imminent publication.

I was very excited to see last May that there was a definite publication date for a revised edition of Principles of Knitting by June Hiatt. Definite enough that Amazon had a picture of a new cover

(quite similar to the original) AND a pre-order button.  Now that was new and a very hopeful sign.  If I remember correctly, it had a release date of September. 

I went ahead and pre-ordered and since then have gotten several updates from Amazon, each one pushing back the publication date. The latest one puts it off until Valentine's Day 2012.  Sigh.

You can read my tale about me and my mother and the original Principles of Knitting here. (If you do read to the end of that rather long post, you will see why it's mighty significant to me that Feb. 14 is the new release date...)

You're right, it IS the holy grail of knitting. I'm disappointed to hear that it has been pushed back yet again. Fortunately, I still have my original copy.
