A very demoralising waste of time (and money.),
This review is from: Galt First Knitting (Toy)
This was bought for my 8 year old daughter as a present. With great excitement she has just tried using it for the first time, and what a complete and utter disappointment it has turned out to be. I can knit, and dread to think how she would have managed just following the instructions on her own! Tiny, thin metal needles and wool of such appalling quality that it literally separated into strands whilst knitting. We got no further than casting on and had to give up at that point because the wool was separating and it became difficult for my daughter to pick up wool without missing strands and getting in a knot. Very demoralising for my daughter who had already done the plaited/beaded part of the purse (which was not helped by the poor instructions which suggested that 10 cm are 2 inches!) A complete and utter waste of money. Tomorrow I will go and buy her some chunky needles and some decent quality wool and we will have a go ourselves. We would not recommend this product to anyone and are very disappointed as we have had several craft sets from Galt previously and they were good. I wanted to give this no stars but Amazon won't let me!
