This review is from: Bruce (Hardcover)
Bought as a gift and the recipient says it's excellent and he whizzed through it - sorry I can't be more detailed!

Bought as a gift for my husband who is a big fan and while he did finish it, he said it wasn't the best Springsteen book he's read and he only persevered as it was a present.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great value, 3 Aug. 2016

Great value acrylic yarn- consistent texture (not sure if that's the right word) and the colour shown is pretty close to what arrived.

Using for practice projects while I learn to knit and will eventually use to knit Hats for the Homeless - as it's easy to work with and washable it will be ideal for this.

I'm no expert on wool as I have only just begun the hobby but this seems like great value if you don't need any wool content so perfect for my little beginner practice projects.

A couple of little 'lumps' along the yarn but nothing to interrupt my knitting and it doesn't split into two strands like some old wool I had lying around so that is a bonus for a beginner like me who can get in a fuddle quite easily.

Good colour and washable so will do the job nicely.

Seriously heavy weight pan with removable discs in the base for easy removal of cakes. Does a great job - I find a pastry brush to grease it does the best job.


Knitty Gritty: Knitting for the Absolute Beginner
Knitty Gritty: Knitting for the Absolute Beginner

5.0 out of 5 stars The best beginner book ever!, 3 Aug. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Finally! I used to knit when I was in primary school (many many years ago) but never got beyond knitting a scarf.

Tried a few times over the years to pick up the hobby as my mum and granny were prolific knitters but could never quite get the knack and always ended up in knots.

This little book is brilliant though - the descriptions are perfect, the hints and tips invaluable and the pictures are so clear you can't help but get it right. It simplifies all the 'science' bit and the notes in the patterns change it from a foreign language into something I can actually follow. A friendly, chatty narrative also helps as it feels more like a friend showing you how to do it than being lectured by a stranger.

When I finish the projects in this one I will definitely look at the next book in the series to help me progress onto more advanced items.

This review is from: Serrated slug and snail tape
Works a treat though the sticky back doesn't stick too well to my pots - first few mornings it was a hoop of copper tape on the ground around the base so in the end I used a bit of wire to make sure it stayed in place but the concept is great as I can't use slug pellets due to curious pets.

4.0 out of 5 stars absolute beginner, 3 Aug. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am very much a beginner so my review might be different to a more experienced knitter. Needles are smooth and lightweight allowing even my cheaper acrylic practice yarn to move over them smoothly. Good range of sizes and the only reason I didn't give 5stars is an odd one...a couple of pairs were wet inside! ( the needles are a stainless steel sleeve over a plastic core with a small gap in between where the water gathered). Didn't get wet in transit as the box was bone dry so must have been either in manufacturing or storage - very odd! Pulled the end caps off and left then upside down on tissue and it seems to be ok now. Good set if you're starting out a d want a variety of sizes to try out different knits.
