The Very Best Of Jake Thackray

5.0 out of 5 stars Happy memories, 21 April 2012

I remember Jake from That's Life years ago. This collection of his songs both funny and sad is such a good listen. I love his lugubrious voice, so droll and so very Northern! Happy listening!

3.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious but not easy to hear, 16 Mar 2012

I really enjoyed this cd! Today I ordered a DVD of Victor Borge so I can see what is going on - I think I'll enjoy that even more. On balance, I do think you miss quite a bit just on audio.

5.0 out of 5 stars New ideas, 27 Dec 2011

I bought this book to find different techniques for steeking fairisle, and although I haven't tried any of the patterns yet, I certainly will be! I love the idea of knitting facings in as you go.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for sensitive eyes, 24 Nov 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I thought I'd try this mascara because other makes, even expensive ones, irritate my eyes and make them feel gritty. I wear contact lenses. I can honestly say this is the most comfortable mascara I have ever used, so I think a 5 star rating is justified even if it is strange to remove (though no harder than waterproof mascara). Thanks to everyone who reviewed this as those reviews encouraged me to try it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Packed with great ideas, 24 July 2011

Having bought some Noro Silk yarn I was puzzling over how to avoid horrible colour transitions and pooling, when I saw this book in an article in The Knitter. I ordered it straight away and found the book crammed with excellent ideas on how to knit with variegated yarn.

Thoroughly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Armour plating for the iPad, 24 July 2011
I have had mine now for 2 months, and can absolutely recommend it to anyone who transports their iPad around for use in the car or outdoors, as it really is armour plating!

An additional bonus is that the front cover allows you to use it to prop up the iPad and this makes it easier to type on it and use all sorts of apps.

Great buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does the trick!, 12 July 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I followed other users' hints and applied the screen protector in the bathroom after running a hot shower. Even though my iPad has a large screen to cover, I managed to get all but one edge bubble free. That edge is itself covered by my iPad casing, so no probs! The anti glare is very welcome. Good product!

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiration galore!, 13 May 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this book because of the yoked sweater on the front page, but I found that there were many other lovely patterns inside too! I think I will be adapting quite a few of these ideas. The yarns used are US ones and I'm not sure of any equivalents here, but I love adapting anyway so this isn't a problem.

A very exciting read because of the unusual techniques!
