1.0 out of 5 stars It is not Gothic., 20 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I think to call this Gothic is very misleading, it's just a lot of pouting girls in corsets and panties. I'm a rock chick and no prude but this is not really what I want from a colouring book. I expected dark, gothic not soft porn. The fine detail is lacking and the overall impression is cheap and tacky.
Very disappointing, won't consider this artist again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Clear instructions., 10 Mar. 2016
A lovely book and a great reference with clear instructions, photos and diagrams fully explaining the different short row techniques. The book is pleasing to look at, nicely laid out and beautifully photographed. It is also very thorough in ensuring that the projects give a good grounding in short row techniques; sweaters, cardigans, shawls and best of all the two different sock methods of toe-up or cuff-down are included. It would have been nice if one or two traditionally constructed (seamed) garments had been featured alongside the top-down, in-the-round and side-to-side patterns, but that aside it is a great little reference and definitely a worthy addition to any knitters bookshelf.

1.0 out of 5 stars Totally unconvincing., 19 Sept. 2015
There seems to be a huge number of Celtic/Highland/Historical/Time-travel books being churned out by US Midwest authors and the genre seems to be expanding alarmingly. Most of these I wouldn't touch purely based on the sleazy covers whilst others, such as this one, appear at first glance as if they may actually be readable. But they are, without exception, unconvincing. I think if US writers want to conquer the British fiction market by setting their novels in the UK then they need to learn to write using proper BRITISH English not using American words spellings, phrases and terms. No matter how well the author may have researched their British history the language of this is completely unconvincing and made it totally unreadable. (Note, I am English with mainly Scots/Irish ancestry) Very glad I didn't pay for this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very durable, 26 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent for cleaning the top, and sides of a motorhome.
It's very durable with good reach.
If only they could do a narrow head for this also for difficult to squeeze into areas.

5.0 out of 5 stars This comfortably fits a giant breed of dog, 26 Aug. 2015
After posting an unhelpfully answered question, of what is the length of these straps, and being told the weight range(!) I decided to take plunge and ordered one, albeit cheaper from a camera specialist website.
I can confirm that this will fit comfortably on a male Pyrenean Mountain Dog at the longest setting. I haven't made any further adjustments to the fit and the elasticity is great for comfort.
Once he is used to the harness, I'll add a camera.

1.0 out of 5 stars It's not a tweed and it's not from Yorkshire., 22 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The yarn received bears no resemblance to what is pictured. It's horrible, processed, feels thin and synthetic, doesn't look at all tweedy. As to it having any Yorkshire connection... it's made in Turkey so a tenuous link with the name Harrap being on the label seems to be the only claim to its heritage. Disappointing as from the item photo's I was expecting something akin to the Rowan tweeds but it does not compare in any way.

1.0 out of 5 stars Appalling quality., 17 July 2015
This is without question the worst item of clothing I have ever paid money for. It is incredibly poor quality; the fabric is coarse, the seams are badly stitched, it is completely shapeless. It resembles what we used to refer to as an 'overall' in the 1970's; what shop girls or hairdressers wore to keep their clothes clean. It's like something made by a 12 year old at the kitchen table from granny's old curtain. It is just horrid.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good useful dress (with pockets)., 16 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Lovely dress. Nice thick, soft cotton, the flower pattern is quite subtle, comfortable sleeve length and neckline even for a mature person like me (!) and side pockets for tissue and reading specs is a big plus point. The grey is a greeny grey, almost more of a duck egg/teal tone that will be good layered with browns or black for winter. Asian sizing is, of course, smaller, so I opted for the 16 (labelled XL) though I'm a 12/14 I like things loose and it is a good 14. Looks lovely as a dress now or layered over a long sleeved t-shirt & jeans for winter. A good versatile buy, nice quality and delivery was 10 days which isn't bad. This seller has some very nice items and I'll definitely consider more of these dresses.
