Knitting Smitten: 20 Fresh and Funky Hand-knit Des&hellip by Jessica Biscoe
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Domestic crafts seem to be having a bit of a revival at the moment, so the Simple Makes imprint has jumped on the bandwagon with a series of books claiming to update traditional crafts for the Fresh, Fly n Funky young hipster about town.

That's all well and good in theory of course, but insofar as all they've collect a load of old beginner's knitting patterns from the 50s and wrapped them in some contemporary graphics, not so much in practice. . I'm not that up to speed with young folk any more, but I'm prepared to bet not that many of them have that much of a use for a dog's bow tie, egg cosies or coin purses.

On the other hand, perhaps I'm wrong. Maybe all the… Read more

As other reviewers have hinted at, even at the entry level price this sells at, it's still somewhat overpriced and below the bare minimum 'starter kit' it promises in the blurb. It's a single standard atomiser with a USB charger in a blister pack, and thats it. No fluid, no instructions, no carrying case. I could only recommend this if you wanted to try vaping and wished to spend the least possible money on the experiment. For anyone wanting to do this long term as an alternative to smoking, I would spend a bit more money (For a start, you need at least two of them, one to charge and one to use)

As for this in action: I've tried quite a few of these devices, and none of them… Read more
