4.0 out of 5 stars Lots of good features, but marred by the yarn used, 22 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There are indeed 100 squares and two different colourways are suggested for each as well as a third square as a slight pattern variation of the original. There is a section at the beginning with well-illustrated guides to the basic stitches, guidance on reading patterns and charts, and the thing I liked best, a short section on working with colour. For each square pattern, yarn requirements, in metres and yards, are given for throws in three sizes from baby to bed. This would be really useful if they were not using Aran/10 ply and a 5 mm crochet hook - I wanted to work in double knitting. There are a few projects scattered throughout the book, but again they are all worked in thick wool. They look really beautiful and are quite inspiring, but the thick yarn used throughout has deterred me from attempting anything from this book yet. All squares and projects are graded for difficulty level, which could be useful.
This is a pretty book which could be perfect for some people, but for me there are better books out there. "Granny Squares" by Susan Pinner gets my vote!

This is a fantastic book which covers all the stitches you will ever need for knitting, crochet, embroidery, needlepoint ... All stitches are very clearly illustrated and instructions are easy to follow. Highly recommended - just browsing through it inspires you to get stitching.

These are very pretty earrings and just the right size so that the CZ could be mistaken for diamonds. Good for everyday wear or a special occasion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Buy, 7 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The best thing I have purchased this year! I struggled for a couple of years with an awkward hook on my hound's collar, but since he is such a big strong dog, I was reluctant to trust any of the standard-sized snap hooks that are so readily available. This monster fits the bill and seemed to be the only one on the market of this size. It is strong and easy to use, without being too heavy a drag for the dog. It is showing no signs of weakness yet and I hope it will stay secure for many years to come.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not for me, 3 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was my second attempt at an iPod and I really did not like it. I hated the fact that you are restricted to the Apple istore which I found more complicated than the Windows system. Also I am keen on classical music and I could not find the choices I wanted in the istore. However, I did purchase some music but I did not find the iPod that intuitive to use and I could not load my music on to it. Amazon was great in giving me a no-quibble refund when I sent it back on the grounds that I could not use it - or was it even working? Probably my ineptitude as I am a little bit of a luddite, but I am now happily settled with a Sony Walkman that is a doddle to use and cost a fraction of the iPod price.
I have to say that I buy with confidence from Amazon because they are so quick to sort out any problems.

This was cheap and it looks it. However, it did the job for the limited amound ot time I kept my iPod.

Fantastic - one of the nicest pieces on Karl Jenkins' "The Armed Man". Be warned though, you will have it going round in your head all day!

There must be hundreds of composers who have written music for "Agnus Dei", but in my opinion, Karl Jenkins' is by far the most enjoyable. This is a good recording of a beautifully written piece.
