1.0 out of 5 stars A Twisting Nightmare to be Polite, 17 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This thread has a terrible twist in it. As you are working the thread folds back on itself causing the thread to become tightly twisted and running to knots. Your fingers get sore trying to keep the thread untwisted enough to continue using. Because of the twist in the thread it causes your work to have a twisted look especially where there are chains and picots.

I tried to untwist it and rewind it but it is so bad you can only get short pieces to do this. I am only making Christmas decorations but the problem was so bad I spent more time trying to get the twist out than I did actually working. If you want hangers for decorations this would be great as it is already so twisted it does it all on its own.

I would not recommend this unless using very short bits, which are easier to untwist.

2.0 out of 5 stars Probably not woth it., 15 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Price is good but I find I waste too much ink to get them working. I have had to do a head clean every time I put the new one in. It takes around 4 cleans to get the ink coming. Not so bad if you are changing them all at once but if you change one then have to change another a few days later and so on you run out of ink much faster as you are flushing most of it. I will go back to using the ones I was using because although they are cheap (not this cheap) I have never had a problem getting them to work right away.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent if you can't eat Wheat, 21 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I found these because I can't eat wheat. I have tried all sorts of alternatives but most are quite gummy or sticky when cooked, which puts me off of eating them.

These not only have a good bit but have no carbs either. Ideal for anyone trying to lower the carbs in their diet. They are quick to prepare so easy to use and come in various varieties for all your pasta dishes.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very good for working in the round, just wish they were not so expensive and came in more sizes. The quality is good, as you would expect with Clover products, and the yarn slides easily over the surface. The hook is long enough you can hold it properly but no so long it gets in your way.

Probably not the best quality but for the price it definitely works. Even if you had to buy a new one in a year it is still worth the money.


The Complete Dukan Cookbook
The Complete Dukan Cookbook
by Dr Pierre Dukan
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £15.49

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book and not just for diets, 21 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The recipes are very nice and really healthy. The book gives a good overview of the diet and divides the recipes into groups so you can easily find the ones you need for any stage. I think this book would be excellent for anyone who wants to eat healthy meals not just those on the diet.

Very impressed with the diet plan as this Dr has figured out why so many people gain back the weight they loose and tells you how to stop this from happening. This could put many of the diet charlatans out of business. The only diet anyone would need with recipes you can use for the rest of your life.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book has some really nice recipes. I only gave it 4 stars because if you have any of the other books you probably have many of the same ones. Not as easy to follow for the stages of the diet as some of the other books but good none the less.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent!, 21 May 2014

For the price these headphones are very good. They fold to store making them easy to carry and come with a protection bag. We used them on an airplane and the noise cancelling did an excellent job. Would recommend these to anyone looking for a good easily portable headset at a reasonable price.

Factorykiss Set of 11 Sizes 32'' (80cm) Aluminum Circular Knitting Needles Kit (1.5mm - 5.0mm)

5.0 out of 5 stars Circular knitting needles - fantastic price!, 21 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am very impressed with this set of circular needles. I was a bit leery about the £1.99 price as 11 circular needles could easily cost more than £30. I bought 2 sets as the price was a small risk and am now using them. The cables are nice and flexible and the yarn does not stick to it like it does with plastic cables. They are smooth and easy to knit with.

The set is marked, on the wrapper, with the old UK numbering system but most knitters have a conversion chart or gauge so this is not an issue. The needles have no size markings but a size gauge is enclosed as well as a sewing needle. They are sized from 1mm to 5mm, which are the most commonly used sizes for most projects. Since the needles can be picked up with a magnet I would say they are made of steel. This could be an issue in the future if they happen to rust but for the price I would say it is worth the risk.

This is certainly something I would recommend to those in my knitting group.

I thought I was getting a new book when in fact it was a copy of an older one I already had. There was a new pattern in it but if you already have Learn to do hairpin Lace by Nancy Nehring I wouldn't bother.
