Love these glass tumblers they are solid and sound and remind me of my childhood drinking juice at Mccari's a cute little cafe .That made the most amazing Knickerbocker glories..Robust and not pretentious these glasses are the bizzo.

5.0 out of 5 stars diggers mum crochets and knits., 13 Feb 2012
Wow ,what a little gem this book is .How wonderful to knit or crochet your own insects and wild flowers .Whats not too love ,getting to grips with the drawn patterns is a challenge but once grasped it,s not so bad .The birds are on the agenda and the butterflies are on my must do list, as I have grand ideas for them ..A wonderful book full of clever creatures.

2.0 out of 5 stars I Love junk shops., 13 Feb 2012
This review is from: Cheap Chic (Paperback)
This really didn,t teach me much .I used to go around the junk shops as a child with my parents as money was tight and as an adult I have continued to do the same as money is still tight so I am used to making and doing and rehashing stuff for a new purpose the photos are lovely in this book but it really hasn,t taught me much that I didn,t know already..

5.0 out of 5 stars A novice knitter!., 13 Feb 2012
I received this book and immediately went to the wool bar for some wool and double ended needles and that evening made my 1st ball the one with the snowflake on ,I have never before used 4 needles but I found on reading the book That with some perseverance I could and I quickly got the knack .I now have 8 balls all red and white and some are freestyle fairisle so was the book worth it? For me YES with out a shadow of a doubt...If you fancy a chrissmassy challenge or nice gifts to give to family and friends then this book is for you .Me I am keeping my knitted ornaments for ME!! and I will have too knit more as gifts,and hope I can part with them..

5.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says on the cover., 4 Aug 2011
This review is from: Simple Crochet (Paperback)
Well having already made several cushions ,and several pairs of slippers from this book in wonderful cotton colours and cosy wool combinations and been highly praised for my creations .I would suggest you purchase this book if only to learn how to crochet as the pictures are wonderful and I have really learnt a lot I just knew one basic stitch which wasn,t very much but now I am racing through projects and really enjoying it .Crochet grows much quicker than knitting,so the end product comes faster and guess what it,s easy to unpick If you make a mistake.I am to coin a pun WELL AND TRULY HOOKED !!!.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple knits for Simple knitters..., 4 Aug 2011
I love this book ,the pictures are wonderful and having come back to knitting after a long absence ,it,s refreshed my memory of how knitting a simple cushion or making a gift for a loved one or friend can be so cathartic and rewarding.Something not mass produced or off the shelf but made with love,care and attention to detail in your choice of colours and yarn..Unique .The patterns are easy to read so I would highly recommend this book..So what are you waiting for ? give it a go and remind yourself how talented you are..
