Cascade - Cascade 220
Fabulous Yarn 5 out of 5
Soft yarn in beautiful colors. The Grandma blanket was thick, warm and soft using the Churchmouse Big Garter Blocks Throw & Afgan and several matching caps.

Berroco - Comfort Sock
Great Sock Yarn 5 out of 5
The washing and drying ease makes this yarn the perfect gift for everyone you love. The muted mixed colors are elegant and the solids are extremely rich. I made 12 pairs of very low footsie style socks for my two best buddies who will be touring Italy soon. They were wildly delighted with the soft comfort, beautiful colors and the knowledge that the socks will be such easy care even while traveling and a new hotel every few days. Fantastic value and ease in use.

Lorna's Laces - Shepherd Sock
Fabulous Socks 5 out of 5
I have probably made two dozen pairs of socks using this yarn, number 0 needle, Magic Loop technique, and the 'Knitting Pure & Simple' instructions. They go so quickly and I have gifted them to everyone (especially myself). They wash wonderfully in my small mesh lingerie bag in the washing machine for just a few minutes and air dry atop my table quickly. My oldest pairs look identical to my newly knitted pairs. I have a long but narrow foot and like the small needles and denser thicker sock!

Lorna's Laces - Shepherd Sock
Impossible to Surpass 5 out of 5
Wonderful yarn and the array of colors is truly a wonder. I have made many pairs of socks for myself, friends, and family. They wear well, hold their shape, and are just perfect.

Knit One, Crochet Too - Ty-Dy Socks
Wonderful for Socks 5 out of 5
Delightful to knit. My socks are lovely, soft, and thick while comfortable in shoes and slippers. They are as nicely shaped in the evening when I take them off as when I first slid them over my feet. I am now making gloves in the same wool and expect the same pleasure with the final result.

Rowan - Pure Wool 4 ply
Smooth, Soft, yet Sturdy 5 out of 5
Good value and nice in hand. Very sturdy while still soft and flexible and shows the stitches and pattern well.

Fiber Trends - Magic Loop
Fantastic Technique 5 out of 5
The Magic Loop technique is simple and almost immediately mastered. The hardest part is the decision to give it a try and then it is off to the races. I cannot say enough about how this technique has increased my desire to knit and even finally love making socks for myself, gloves, booties and just any or items. Any yarn weight knits up so evenly and easily. All of the little needles are replaced by just one simple long flexible needle and stitches are never falling off, no ladders, no tangles. It is a miracle!

Blue Sky Alpacas - Brushed Suri
Utterly delightful 5 out of 5
One skein makes the perfect scarf. I have made so many in every color and they are perfect gifts that are loved and cherished at first touch. Just finishing the last few 'stocking stuffers' for this season, but I have truthfully made at least two dozen in the past.

Mac & Me - Mac & Me Patterns
Wonderful and great utility 5 out of 5
First a pair for me. Utterly delighted I made an additional pair for five other relatives. Two kindergarten teachers went wild with their 'playground gloves', an elderly aunt in Minnesota calls them her 'missal gloves'. I had to make two more pair for each of my BFFs and hiking buddies one who also volunteers for Meals on Wheels. So simple, versatile, warm. They are wonderful!

Lorna's Laces - Shepherd Sock
Great Yarn 5 out of 5
Everything about this yarn is exceptional. The range and quality of colors is stupendous. The finished knit is very smooth with well defined stitches and patterns. It is lovely to work with - smooth and soft to the touch yet it never seems to separate causing split stitches. Every item seems to be knit so quickly.
