Customer Review

on 19 December 2010
There are some fantastic patterns in this book ranging from the simple to the more complex. I've already made the snail and bits of hermit crab and sea star (adapting them for various uses including Christmas decorations!).
The instructions are reasonably clear for the most part, but could do with clearer pictures and more photos of the more complicated directions. This is essentially engineering in wool, and it can be tricky to get your head round exactly what is intended. Pictures of the completed items from other angles would have been useful, for example so that you can clearly see whether the base of the snail is in stocking stitch or reverse stocking stitch so you can work out where the instructions are taking you.
The errors are irritating, however. The last 2 rows of the base of the snail are missing, for example, and this is NOT covered in the errata on the publisher's website. Indeed one of the corrections published is in itself incorrect! Perhaps people writing scathing criticisms of other peoples reviews should check their facts first.
I've tried to contact the author via Ravelry but no response to date and her Etsy shop no longer seems to be in operation.
