World of Knitted Toys
World of Knitted Toys
by Kath Dalmeny
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent!, 22 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: World of Knitted Toys (Paperback)
I have yet to make any of the toys as I have another project still to finish, but my two grandsons have already placed their order for a parrot and a monkey, so I know I will have lots of use from it. I also love the clown fish (Nemo) and will be making that one too. I loved the way the book was divided into Jungle, Farmyard, Ocean etc with a description of the habits and habitat of each animal - this made it an educational book as well. Well worth the money and I am itching to get started on knitting my first toy!

Good quick service, easy to order and my labels - which were not address ones - looked really professional. Well done.

1.0 out of 5 stars Rubbish, 22 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For what I paid, I was disgusted with this product. But, having bought it I put it together (not as easy as you would think) and filled it with compost before planting my strawberries. That was last summer. This year, the strawberries have been replanted direct in the garden and the planter barrel is behind the back door with old flower pots etc in it. The plants did not thrive, despite the watering system and me keeping a beady eye on them, so I have given up. Don't buy it, it is rubbish.

5.0 out of 5 stars Super, 22 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a super little book of patterns - I have made two pairs of bootees so far and am looking forward to making several more. If I have one small criticism, it is that the instructions are a little sketchy here and there, for example when I have finished the decreasing/increasing, there is no note of how many stitches I should have. Small point, but I think valid. Otherwise, a great little book of patterns all of which can be adapted to your own choice of colour etc.

Since writing the above, I have made two more pairs of bootees. I am not as happy with the book now as I was, in fact I have definitely got the Hump! The pink bootees with the lace effect front were so out of proportion, I undid it and left out one complete pattern set of rows with the result that the bootee is now in the correct proportion. The picture of the pink and lilac bootee shows THREE knitted flowers, the instructions are given for two and those instructions are simply to cast on 18 stitches knit one row, increase in every stitch in next row, then cast off. Nothing else as to how to create the flower out of the semi-circular piece of knitting you have in your hand! Fortunately, I am quite artistic and made something of it, but not everybody might find it that easy to improvise. I really think the author of this book should have proof read it more carefully as it is so disappointing when things are not explained sufficiently.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Toy, 22 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this for my grandson's third birthday and it was an immediate hit. He loves to 'cook' and this is a well-made durable toy. I was at his house the other day, eight months later, and it is still played with and looking in excellent condition. Worth the price.

My young grandson loved this, but it didn't have long as the novelty quickly wore off. He uses the cloak for dressing up as something else now, but it served its purpose at the time!

5.0 out of 5 stars Stuffed!, 22 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This bag of stuffing was just enough for my needs and is a good quality product. When the parcel arrived I was a bit worried that there wouldn't be much stuffing inside, but they had cleverly taken all the air out so when the polythene bag was opened the stuffing expanded! When making this raiting, I HAD to rate this toy!!!!! Obviously, it is not a toy - yet - but I had to put something, so put Love It right the way through even though it is not really applicable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, 22 Jun. 2012
Another piece of brilliance from the talented Annie Groves. Have read all her books now and loved each and every one. Wartime England has always held a fascination for me and these stories are just so down to earth and believable. Buy it today, you won't regret it!
