5.0 out of 5 stars More a 'why you should knit' rather than a knitting book, 15 Sep 2011
This could also be called The Great Joy of Knitting. I don't think that it is aimed at the seasoned knitter but more for those who need a nudge to start. It is brushing away the stuffiness of the craft and saying why it is so enjoyable and what motivates those to keep knitting.

I think it is refreshing for an author to say why she opts for knitting an item a certain way; for example on knitting blankets she points out why she would not use Moss stitch (we all love Moss stitch but oh it seems to take a long time to knit) and the fact that she finds knitting squares a turn off as sewing them up later would be a ...'mind-numbingly tedious exercise'. She then gives an alternative blanket design to try.

Reading Jane Brocket's book is like listening to a fellow-member of a knitting group. I think this would be an excellent gift for a teenager who fancies having a go or to someone who wants to start knitting again after a long break. KN


Thoroughly Modern Millie [DVD]
Thoroughly Modern Millie [DVD]
Dvd ~ Julie Andrews
Price: £4.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Very silly and very enjoyable, 15 Sep 2011
A perfect film for those bleak winter Sat/Sun afternoons with a pot of tea and a large slice of homemade cake. Fast, fun and very silly. Julie Andrews is sensational as Millie. The music is lively, the clothes are fab and it looks like the whole cast are thoroughly enjoying themselves. However you may find the silliness long and tiresome if you are looking for a serious and thought-provoking film. KN
