5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the price., July 6, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Love it!! It's heavy (whew) - but for a good reason. When my mother saw this (she grew up canning in Northern Canada) she said "That's a real farm canner!" It's pricey - but well worth the price in it's weight and quality. The included instructions/warnings are clear, and there are basic instructions, times, and pressures included. There are also big orange stickers on the outside warning of what not to do. (canning safely for dummies - for example, release the lid slowly after taking the weight off ... ) You can find even more charts and categories on the USDA canning web pages. Easy to use. It does make a bit of noise, so I don't usually stay in the kitchen, but well worth it to get canned goods that I know will be (as long as they seal) properly canned and safe. I can't wait until the end of the summer. Or maybe I can - I anticipate being pretty busy then with this nifty item!

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice size and shape., July 6, 2014

I really like the shape for asparagus! Also for those last amounts when you're doing pints or quarts and have not quite enough to make a quart or too much to make that last pint.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well designed and fits large heads., July 6, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
We got this for my dad who has problems with ear infections when he gets any water in his ears. He already uses good ear plugs, but he needed a cap that really goes down over his ears. And he has a big head - usually wears X-large. So far it's going well. We also like the 30 days 110% money back guarantee (even after use) that was printed on the packaging. So far we haven't returned it! Also, it's reasonably sturdy. If you just hold the edges and pull it on, it may well tear - almost any good cap would. But putting it on properly is quite easy, and it is sturdy.

Um, it's a simple toilet bowl brush with a holder. Works well to clean, the caddy holds it. Yup. Oh - a bit on the small side, but not excessively so - does its job.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring photographs and well documented techniques, July 6, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I've already gone through this whole book and it looks like the book has a fringe! I put so many little stickies on the pages of the yarns that I am looking forward to spinning. This book is well put together, has lovely photography, and the illustrations are well put together. There are enough photos of both the component parts of each technique as well as text, and examples of the finished products to inspire the reader. There are a few techniques I would probably not spin - but that's my choice - I still have learned a lot about other things I can do from some of those very techniques that I may never actually try. Totally useful book, and I'd recommend it to any spinner. If you're a beginner there may be a bit of an intimidation factor, but don't let this stop you from using this for inspiration and ideas. There are several yarns that appear complex that are really very simple, and then there are also the ones that may seem as though you need about for hands to get through. But that's ok - go for it and learn from those yarns that you feel are"disasters" that often other people (other spinners included) then think are wonderful!

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice and bendy., July 6, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I really like that the bendy part of these straws is long enough. When fully stretched out you have almost 2 inches of bendiness. A bit short for my niece and nephew (they like those ridiculous ones that you can tie knots in and still drink - silly kids), but better than the really cheap ones that hardly bend. Oh, and the diameter is also nice, just a tiny bit narrower than McDonald's diameter - so not the annoying thin straws that make you think of coffee stirrers.

Way too fun and colorful. And there are quite a few here. I'm having too much fun making my files pretty.


The Field Guide to Fleece: 100 Sheep Breeds & How to Use Their Fibers
The Field Guide to Fleece: 100 Sheep Breeds & How to Use Their Fibers

Edition: Paperback
Price: $11.73

5.0 out of 5 stars Handy, pretty, and useful!, July 6, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Almost all of the breeds I was looking for are in this book. It is small but packed with useful information, lovely photos and color, and good shots of the fleece structure. A nice little book to keep by the spinning wheel or take with you to those fiber festivals to quickly check to see if that lovely fleece you're looking at will behave the way you hope for your lovely next to the skin cowl, or if it really is a bit too itchy or sturdy and might be better for rugs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice texture and yummy, July 6, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These are sometimes hard to find in larger quantities, and my father loves these for quick energy while he's out golfing, or doing heavy gardening. Also easy to eat on long road trips. They have a nice balance of soft (no crunch) but not gooey. Sort of like al dente pasta that's just right.

4.0 out of 5 stars Compact and self explanatory, July 6, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This nice compact color wheel is simple, but easy to use. I appreciate being able to predict what will result when overdoing fibers and avoiding the muddy colors that I really don't like.
