5.0 out of 5 stars Must-have for lace knitting, 15 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is the perfect introduction and reference manual for Shetland lace knitting, gathering together the major Shetland-style lace knitting stitches in one place. It is well-written and easy to understand, with patterns both charted and written. It gives instructions on how to construct your own lace shawls and scarves, and gives enough information to enable you to understand more advanced charts. I started in reverse with difficult books like Gladys Amedro's, and wish I had started with this one.

The projects at the end of the book are just to get you started and show you how to use the stitches, so I don't believe they detract from the quality of the book.

Definitely worth buying if you want to try your hand at lace knitting, or expand your range.

1.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't work with Panasonic systems, 25 Mar 2011
It seems there are systems that this switch just won't work with - unfortunately mine is one of them (Panasonic home cinema system). The cables were perfectly between the blu-ray or Sky+HD and the sound system, but not when the switch is put into the mix.

This case is a perfect fit for the Bold 9000. It protects the back while not obstructing the mic hole, which so many full-cover cases do. It has a lovely smooth finish and is well-made. Perfect!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but..., 17 Aug 2005
The Micro is a great little MP3 player - better value for money and better functionality and storage than iPod or other makes of similar price. The sound quality is great, the amount of music you can store is superb, the voice recorder is good quality and the FM radio caps it off nicely. It's easy to use once you get used to the touch pad technology and on the music side you can't fault it. The only way it can be faulted is hardware reliability: I am now on my 4th body in 9 months due variously to hard disk failure, faulty USB cable (admittedly not the body) and two with a headphone jack problem, already mentioned by someone else. Creative and Amazon have both been very good on the support side, replacing without any problems and being very helpful on the phone. I might think twice about the Zen Micro in future because of the hardware problems I have had, but while it's in warranty I am happy to stick with it. If it goes wrong again I might reconsider!
