Close-Knit Family (Hardcover) Book Sweaters You Love New

Product Description

Most knitters create garments for someone else, usually a family member. With this beautiful collection of sweaters from knitwear designer Melissa Leapman, knitters will find projects to delight everyone on their gift list. Each chapter has a basic design that has been interpreted into different sweaters for adults and children. Instead of taking one sweater and changing the size, Melissa has created different designs from a similar theme for each family member. By not merely reworking the same sweater in many different sizes, these projects will keep even the most prolific knitter engaged.

The sweaters are grouped in families, so the knitter can knit sweaters for herself, her husband, and her children that are all variations on a theme. The designs are new and different without being too untraditional or high fashion, and they use a wide variety of stitches and techniques that will appeal to whatever the knitter is in the mood for, such as intarsia, slipped stitch patterns, gansey, and cables. There are patterns in this book for knitters of all skill levels and designs for every season and climate; knit in wool, cotton, and blended yarns. Yarn substitution information allows knitters to adapt projects for their needs and budgets.

Cool Girls Quilt: More Than 15 Fresh Fun Funky Projects New

 
Cool Girls Quilt is a fun book by Linda Lum DeBono that succeeds in appealing to sewers and quilters of a variety of skill levels. In fact, it could potentially be an outstanding teaching book, if you re looking to get a young person involved in quilting for the first time. It's nice because, while the book is constructed like a project book, it's also contains sequential skill-building where each project builds upon the techniques practiced in the previous project. The projects are extremely eye-catching, using vibrant fabrics and bold applique in everything from a small floral pin cushion to a vintage-inspired quilted wall hanging.

One of the things I really appreciate about Cool Girls Quilt is the excellent introductory section. For example, selecting the right fabrics for a project can sometimes be intimidating even if you're very experienced. Linda encourages you to do what she does: use gut instinct. With that said, she also provides you with some questions to guide you in your decision-making process. She encourages you to ask questions to focus more on the recipient, such as, does their home have a contemporary or modern flair? Once you've decided upon the right feel for your project, she provides her favorite tips and tricks for organizing your fabrics to determine what you want to include in your quilted project. The Quiltmaking Basics section gives a very thorough overview of the quilting process, with clear, use-to-understand illustrations of key quilting techniques, such as rotary cutting, applique and binding. I mentioned that there are some great projects that would make excellent candidates for teaching someone quilting and sewing. The tool case is one such project. This simple case actually provides lots of instruction in techniques such as layering fabrics, sewing on applique and adding embellishments but it's small enough that it can be completed relatively quickly, so the student would feel satisfied that they'd been able to finish. Plus, since they have a tool kit for all their quilting goodies, it serves to inspire them to keep at quilting. Another such project in Cool Girls Quilt is a fun apron. While it s not specifically a quilting project, it serves to help develop some important skills you'll need to quilt---measuring and cutting. Each of the first few projects in this book are like this one in that they guide you through creating a project that emphasizes building an important skill for quilting success.

Once you've been able to work through some of the basic skill-building projects, Linda has you start with more complicated, but smaller-scale, pieces that combine the techniques practices earlier in the book. I love that the projects at this point are still simple enough in terms of size to complete in a relatively short period of time, but that they involve enough different fabrics and techniques that they're bound to keep you engaged. The quilting projects are so appealing, that even though they'd be very highly appropriate for a new quilter, I see them as just as relevant for a quilting veteran who has made many, many quilts. The designs are so fresh and the ideas for different color palettes are so fun, that it's not hard to get enthusiastic about making one of these as soon as possible.

Because Cool Girls Quilt can serve so many different needs for quilters, particularly as a user-friendly book for teaching quilting, I can definitely say that you should buy this book. --FabTalk Blog--Sarah 3/22/09

Dick Whittington And His Cat by Margaret Hodges Book

 

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 3 In this spare retelling of the British legend, the narrative keeps buoyant with droll dialogue. The humorous illustrations, created with colorful inks and gouache, enhance the story with expressive faces and movement that delight the eye: a person wearing a mask and teetering on stilts, a dog nipping at the feet of an agitated juggler, a young girl dancing with a tambourine. Period detail includes short tunics, long cloaks, pointed shoes, timber-framed houses, thatched roofs, and mullion windows. The dramatically posed landscapes and people are energized by some wavy and slightly distorted perspectives: a man staring out a window, his head at a seemingly impossible angle, and an enlarged cat's head emerging at the end of Dick's bed to view some fleeing mice. However, some of the split-screen illustrations are less effective because they blend into one another in a busy, confused whole. Marcia Brown's classic retelling of the story (Scribner's, 1950) sets a high standard; nevertheless, Hodges's sprightly retelling is a worthy addition to Dick Whittington lore.

Family Scrapbooking by Lael Combe Furgeson(2001) New

 

Crafts in general and scrapbooking in particular have traditionally been considered a mother's domain, but this guide is geared toward helping the entire family get involved in creating memorable photo pages. In Family Scrapbooking, the mother-and-daughter team of Lael Combe Furgeson and Stephanie Taylor show how to create eye-catching layouts featuring kids cavorting with cousins, doing art projects at Grandma's, going on family excursions, getting ready for holidays, even having a scrapbook party with Dad.

Although Mom will still most likely be the primary crafter of these pages, the fun and simple layouts, the good directions, and the beginner-friendly materials (lots of stickers, patterned papers, and punched shapes) mean that other family members can easily get involved, even without any prior crafting experience. The authors generally succeed in avoiding the overcrowded look prevalent in many books on the subject, where the photos often seem to get lost amid all the embellishments. Helpful tips scattered throughout the project pages give further good advice, such as photographing children in bright clothing, which will help to set a color theme for the subsequent scrapbook page. --Amy Handy

Jim Cramer's Real Money: Sane Investing in an Insane

After telling the story of his own trading days in Confessions of a Street Addict, Cramer appeases fans hoping for advice on how to duplicate his success with their own investment portfolios. But not without some strong caveats: his approach requires devoting at least an hour a week to educating yourself about each stock you own. But since most pros are "rank amateurs themselves," anyone willing to do the work should consider getting in. Cramer breaks down the fundamentals of his investment approach, built on the twin principles of diversification and speculation: while most of your portfolio should contain reliables like oil, financials and blue-chip companies, 20% percent of your money should go toward a slightly riskier bet on a company's future ("owning a stock is a bet on the future, not the past"). He also explains techniques for figuring out when to buy rock bottom stocks and sell the ones that have hit their peaks. Cramer drills his main points over and over, which can get repetitive on the anecdotal level but reinforces the simplicity of his message: investing is for anybody willing to put the time into learning how to do it right. His enthusiasm should prove inspiring, and even investors on the wrong side of Wall Street's recent shakeups may find the courage to get back in the game. Either way, Cramer's radio, TV and print platforms are sure to make this one another hit. Agent, Suzanne Gluck at William Morris. (Apr. 5)

Knit 2 Together by Mel Clark Tracey Ullman Hardcover (New)

From Publishers Weekly

The multitalented Ullman now graces audiences with another gift: a funny and accessible book on knitting, co-written with the owner of her local Santa Monica, Calif., yarn store. Ullman's been knitting for three years, and Clark, a New Zealander, is her knitting mentor. The duo shares more than 30 original designs, accompanied by Ullman's witticisms and Clark's trustworthy advice. The patterns are for chic, sometimes quirky items, such as a Lacy Hug-Me-Tight, a hybrid shrug/shawl with a pretty lace trim; and a Gym Slip Dress reminiscent of a high school uniform but with a panel of ruching at the hem, a lace panel at the waist and ribbing at the bodice. Although beginners may be skeptical of some of the more detailed creations, Ullman and Clark are nothing if not reassuring; says Clark, "There's no mystery to it. No one need feel intimidated." The patterns go beyond clothing for adults and kids; there's also a bath mat, photo frames, a table runner and other home accents. An addendum teaches special techniques, but novices will need the additional help of a primer to take on most of these patterns. Still, knitters sick of scarves and potholders will relish this refreshing and fun guide. Photos. (Oct.)

Little Badger Knitwear by Elaine Scott 2000 Paperback

 

After raising their own children, businesswoman Elaine Scott and designer Ros Badger realized there was a demand for well-made, stylish hand knitwear. The two soon joined forces to create Little Badger. This book features some of their favorite and most successful knitwear designs for infants and toddlers to 6-year-olds. Also included are new patterns for sweaters, hats, blankets, mittens, and leggings; 25 designs in all. 90 charming color photographs and drawings illustrate the text. "When I was pregnant with my first daughter Martha, I was looking through some old knitting patterns . . . I found some lovely old- fashioned pram coats which provided the inspiration for this Denim coat dress. I used the denim cotton yarn with coconut shell buttons, and updated the traditional pram coat design by using moss stitch edging instead of lace, to create a coat dress that looks just as good with pretty dresses or dungarees as it does with a Christening robe." - from the book

Majestic Mule Deer 2001, Paperback Tribute Popular Game (New)

 

The latest entry in Voyageur Press' Majestic series focuses on the common deer of the West. Named by William Clark (of Lewis and Clark) for its enormous ears, this larger cousin of the more familiar whitetail is portrayed as the finest game animal in its range. The fact that this species inhabits some of the most beautiful country in the West, from deserts to temperate rain forests, adds to its appeal. Four chapters combine magnificent photographs of mule deer with the editors' choice of the best tales of mule-deer hunting from seven outdoor writers. The stories range from straightforward to humorous, and in the era from 1897 to the 1980s. The photographs illustrating the stories are for the most part superb, featuring trophy buck deer, as would be expected in a book about hunting (though a doe or young spike buck occasionally sneaks in). The quality of the illustrations, and their meshing with the text, recommends this homage to mule deer for libraries with large collections on natural history or hunting. Nancy Bent --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
 

Product Description

The most popular and admired game animal in the Western United States, mule deer are found in some of North America’s most magnificent and rugged areas, from Baja California in Mexico through the American West to Alaska. We’re sure your admiration will extend to this trophy collection of classic and contemporary mule deer hunting stories that we’ve illustrated with world-class wildlife photography and historic hunting images. This ultimate tribute to mule deer is sure to evoke the thrill of the hunt from the comfort of your armchair and will undoubtedly inspire many hunting trips yet to come. Contributing authors include modern-day author Patrick McManus, and famous writers from the past, such as Ted Trueblood, Elliott Barker, Rutherford Montgomery, Charles F. Waterman, Ninetta Eames, and Hamilton M. Laing.

Mostly True: A Memoir of Family Food and Baseball New Destiny Book

Molly O'Neill's father believed that baseball was his family's destiny.
He wanted to spawn enough sons for an infield, so he married the tallest woman in Columbus, Ohio.
Molly came out first, but eventually her father's plan prevailed. Five boys followed in rapid succession and the youngest, Paul O'Neill, did, in fact, grow up to be the star right fielder for the New York Yankees. I
n Mostly True, celebrated food critic and writer O'Neill tells the story of her quintessentially American family and the places where they come together -- around the table and on the ball field.

Molly's great-grandfather played on one of the earliest traveling teams in organized baseball, her grandfather played barnstorming ball, and her father pitched in the minor leagues, but after being sidelined with an injury in the war, he set his sights on the next generation. While her brothers raged and struggled to become their own men, Molly, appointed "Deputy Mom" at an age when most girls were playing with dolls, learned early how to be the model Midwestern homemaker and began casting about wildly for other possible destinies. As her mother cleaned fanatically and produced elaborate, healthy meals, Molly spoiled her bro-thers with skyscraper cakes, scribbled reams of poetry, and staged theatrical productions in the backyard. By the late 1960s, the Woodstock Nation had challenged some of the O'Neill values, but nothing altered their conviction that only remarkable achievement could save them.

Mostly True is the uncommon chronicle of a regular family pursuing the American dream and of one girl's quest to find her place in a world built for boys. Molly O'Neill -- an independent, extraordinarily talented, and fiercely funny woman -- showed that home runs can be hit in many fields. Her memoir is glorious.

New Unlocking the Animal Mind: How Your Pet's Feelings Book McMillan

 

Making the case that feelings—"comfort, pleasure, discomfort, and suffering"—are the only things that matter to pets, veterinarian McMillan demonstrates a variety of ways that pet owners can observe the impact of emotions on their pets' health and use such information to better the quality of their pets' lives.

McMillan's conceptual keys to pet behavior are the "Comfort Zone," an animal's mental state in the absence of unpleasant feelings, and the "Pet Pleasure Principle" (with thanks to philosopher Jeremy Bentham), which describes an animal's choice of behavior based on what will bring it the most pleasure.

Using numerous examples from his practice, he shows how these concepts work (and work together): feeling out of the Comfort Zone can be an "early-warning system that a potential threat exists," for example, while an animal back in its Comfort Zone will spend its energy seeking greater pleasure. A helpful chart entitled "Why Your Pet Ain't Misbehavin' " lists painful emotions a pet might experience (e.g., boredom, anxiety) and the undesirable behaviors such emotions often cause (e.g., howling, chewing furniture).

McMillan's thesis is, he acknowledges, an "incredibly simple concept," and it probably doesn't deserve all the pages it gets, but those seeking greater connection with their pets will find it enlightening.

Raising a Team Player: Teaching Kids Lasting Values New

Youth sports have become a pressure cooker of expectations.
Parents scream abuse at players, coaches, and referees.
Coaches demand that their teams win, at any cost.
Kids practice day and night.
They face intense pressure to score, to win, to succeed.
But is this the measure of success we want to impress upon our children?

In the complex world of today's youth athletic programs, parents face many challenging questions. What is a successful athletic experience? How can you help kids deal with pressure from coaches, players, and other parents? How do you encourage healthy competitiveness and discourage poor sportsmanship? Can you help your child develop a strong work ethic without becoming discouraged at the slow progress? How do you support a child who sits on the bench all year long? What's the best way to encourage your strong-willed all-star to support his teammates? How do you teach a child to accept criticism positively? Most important, how do you help your child absorb real core values from sports? How can you use sports as a vehicle to talk to kids about life's challenges?

In Raising a Team Player, Harry Sheehy answers these questions and more. Offering lessons and wisdom learned from more than seventeen years of working with elementary school children, high schoolers, and college players, Sheehy encourages parents to get involved in their kids' athletic experiences. He offers advice on how to praise, encourage, inspire, build, temper, support, and teach, working with children on everything from setting goals to teaching sportsmanship and humility to building character and a sense of self-worth. With direct, compelling words, Sheehy inspires in parents and coaches an attitude of self-realization, humor, confidence, and enthusiasm for both the successes and mistakes of young athletes.

Rodeo by Lynn Campion (2002, Hardcover, Illustrated) (New)

 

 
"Campion's photos and prose convey the gritty details of the sport, as well as the very American roots of rodeo. I urge anyone with an interest in rodeo to pick up a copy of this book. The photos alone are worth the price of the volume."--Horsemen's Yankee Pedlar
 


"Intended primarily as a fan guide for the new watcher of rodeo sport, it's also a great photo album for the long-time rodeo spectator."--American Quarter Horse Journal
 
 

Product Description

"Campion's photos and prose convey the gritty details of the sport, as well as the very American roots of rodeo. I urge anyone with an interest in rodeo to pick up a copy of this book. The photos alone are worth the price of the volume." -Horsemen's Yankee Pedlar

More than seventeen million people attended rodeos in the United States and Canada last year, and more than thirteen million viewers tuned in to ESPN to watch the National Finals Rodeo, where the top competitors battled for $4.6 million in prize money. Lynn Campion's RODEO is the perfect companion to the sport, sure to entertain and edify longtime fans and novices alike.

Campion traveled to various rodeos for this book, taking photographs and conducting interviews. She gives vivid accounts of the competitions, from the "roughstock" events, in which a cowboy must ride a wild bucking horse or bull for eight seconds, to the timed events, in which competitors must rope calves with split-second precision, leap from the backs of horses to wrestle steers to the ground, or race each other in a cloverleaf pattern around barrels at breakneck speed. The book provides the fascinating details viewers can't see-such as how cowboys train, and where the bucking animals come from (they're carefully bred for their abilities and are treated very well to ensure that they have long careers). Also included are profiles of top performers and listings of world records and annual rankings. Beautifully designed and illustrated, RODEO is a thrilling celebration of America's western heritage.

Product Description

Everyone, at some time in his or her life, fantasizes about being a spy--James Bond, Mata Hari, George Smiley, Maxwell Smart. At the new International Spy Museum in Washington, D.C., more than a million visitors have stepped into the secret history of history--and have learned what it is really like to live undercover. This distinctive and fascinating book at once distills and expands upon that experience, with inside information on how spies do their jobs, interviews with operatives, and hundreds of photographs and descriptions of tools of the trade.

Biographies of legendary spies and how they completed their special operations are included, along with timelines showing the developments of bugs, surveillance tools, weapons, and disguises.

StampCraft Cari Haysom Books Stamp Furniture and More

Amazon.com Review

Although the expected is here (note cards, wrapping paper, boxes), so is the delightfully unexpected (a fire screen, a chef's hat and apron, a coffee table, ceramic dishware, candles), all of it attractively handled. The majority of the more than 40 projects are home-decor pieces, and there are also various clothing items and paper products, plus some nice children's items, presented with good step-by-step directions and clear color photos. The instructional emphasis is more on individual items than on whole rooms, but a number of photo spreads show fully coordinated effects, from walls to window treatments to bed linens to a hutch full of various accessories. --Amy Handy
 

From Library Journal

Rubber-stamp art is a continually expanding craft, with thousands of stamps now available for purchase, along with new inks, pens, and embossing powders for coloring. Haysom's projects, including stationery, fabrics, and furniture decoration, have well-illustrated, step-by-step instructions. McGraw concentrates on decorating techniques such as cutouts and embellishments for use on handmade cards. Both books have introductory chapters on materials and equipment, care of rubber stamps, and so on. Although not as sophisticated as Stewart and Sally Walton's Stamp Magic: Inspired Effects with the Easiest New Decorating Technique (LJ 11/1/95), these are very practical guides to a popular topic.

The Book of Knowledge The Children\'s Encyclopedia 1922

1 Book- The Children\'s Encyclopedia 1922 The Book of Knowledge

                     Year 1922 -   Pages 1157-1532


The Children\'s Encyclopædia was an encyclopædia originated by Arthur Mee, and published by the Educational Book Company, a subsidiary of Amalgamated Press of London. It was published from 1908 to 1964. Walter M. Jackson\'s company Grolier acquired the rights to publish it in the U.S. under the name The Book of Knowledge (1910).

The encyclopædia was originally in fortnightly parts between March 1908 and February 1910. Some readers could have bound their collections, but the first eight-volume sets were published in 1910. Each section contained a variety of articles, developing topics as it progressed. The work could be used as a conventional reference library, as the last volume had an alphabetical index, or each section could be read from start to finish. It was originally organised into sections but there were changes in subsequent editions. Some titles covered scientific subjects such as geology, biology and astronomy but such scientific terms were generally avoided.

Mee wrote a \"Greeting\" and a \"Farewell\". He took a strong interest in the \"Book of Wonder\", in which the \"Wise Man\" answered questions by children.

The illustrations were mostly anonymous but some illustrators included Susan Beatrice Pearse, C. E. Brock, Thomas Maybank, George F. Morrell, Dudley Heath, Charles Folkard, H. R. Millar, Alexander Francis Lydon, Arthur A. Dixon and Arthur Rackham. The books used photographs by Frank Hinkins, engravings, maps and graphics[1].

The Encyclopædia broke ground in the approach to education, aiming to make learning interesting and enjoyable. Its articles were clearly written. It aimed to develop character and sense of duty.

Articles reflected its authors: they were proud of Britain and the British Empire; religion – Christianity was held to be the only true religion; racism – the white race was superior, and there were hints of the eugenic ideas of Dr Saleeby. Offsetting this was a moderate and liberal standpoint in many areas: other races might be inferior, but they should be treated with respect,

The Bread Book Recipes for loaves Over The World Book

 

 Linda Collister is devoted to bread making.

The Bread Book, which features her recipes for loaves from all over the world, exemplifies her commitment to her subject but without the rigidity and complication or oversimplification of similar works. 

Calmly, and taking into account every possible bread making contingency, she explains how to produce a variety of breads, from basic sandwich loaves to ciabatta. But it's the photos more than 300 of them that set this book apart. For example, the basic loaf recipe is accompanied by 22 detailed shots, showing every preparatory step from crumbling yeast to slashing the loaf before baking. Amateur and practiced bakers alike will welcome this careful illustration of a process that relies so much on visual cues.  

In addition to covering basic, flat, and quick breads, Collister offers chapters on such specialty loaves as fruit, nut, and savory breads (cheese and onion loaf), celebration breads (panettone and challah), and sourdough, rye, and enriched goods (babas, savarins, and Aberdeen butteries, a delicious Scottish breakfast roll).

The Bread Book is so comprehensive and the recipes so tempting that it's unfortunate to note that it is compromised by inaccurate quantity conversions and a repeated typographical glitch that obscures ingredient requirements in several recipes.

Collister states that a cup of flour (no distinction is made among types equals four ounces rather than about five, the standard equivalent for white flours.

Thus, for example, 6 cups of white bread flour is stated as equivalent to 680 grams, while actual measurement shows it to weigh 822 grams a difference of about 5 ounces.

The cup or gram measure as given is, therefore, unreliable. But readers aware of these problems may still want to consult the book for its instructive photos and the other useful information it provides. Arthur Boehm This text refers to the edition.

Review "The secrets of international four-star chefs and local bakers." Publishers Weekly  

"This handsome volume is a full-color collection of the world's most delectable breads. This is a big beautiful book that all bakers novices as well as experienced pastry chefs will want to have on their shelves. The Bread Book is perfect for anyone who loves to bake homemade bread or wants to learn how."
