5.0 out of 5 stars A good read, 26 April 2013

Excellent condition and arrived on time. I couldn't have found a cheaper copy of this book anywhere else. If you belong to a book group and need a copy of the suggested title, this is a good place to look first.

4.0 out of 5 stars Making paper patterns, 26 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Graph paper was as I expected. I would have preferred thinner sheets [if I could have bought it] as I was designing a pattern for a jacket and the paper was unnecessarily rigid but, for other purposes, it is tough and the print is clear. It is good enough paper for making patterns, especially if the pattern is to be kept and used again several times. Cumbersome to store though.

I was a bit fed up that I had to wait so long for it to arrive, more than two weeks after the suggested date. It was only when I emailed to say that I hadn't received the goods that it suddenly materialised. Whether that is the fault of the supplier or delivery, I can't comment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Learn to play one to a part, 29 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The pieces in this book are carefully graded and are great if you are learning to play a stringed instrument and want to play one to a part. The music varies from Handel, Mozart, Beethoven and Schumann in addition to Variations on Early One Morning by Sheila Nelson. It isn't a patronising selection so adults can enjoy these learning together as well as children.There is plenty of music published for people to play alone but very little where people can play together and this surely is what music is about. Not only can you practise timing but also intonation - essential for learners of stringed instruments. I wish there were more books like this one!


The Essential Guide to Colour Knitting Techniques
The Essential Guide to Colour Knitting Techniques
by Margaret Radcliffe
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Colour Knitting, 29 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although this book is a paperback, the pages are thick, hardwearing and pleasantly smooth to touch. The print colours are very clear, important when the subject is about colour knitting. The focus of this book is about how to use stitches with different coloured wools rather than teaching how to knit or presenting really fancy designs. A clear graph for each patterned stitch is displayed on each page: the instructions couldn't be clearer. In addition to the stitches and advice on colour, there is information on design in general. I have found this book very useful for developing my own creative thoughts with the variety of wool that I have.
