 A Favorite 1 of 12 
 Review by: CarolynH Aug 28, 2014 
 Rating: 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
 Product reviewed: Cascade - Cascade 220 Sport
I love the Cascade yarns for their quality, affordable prices and wide range of colors. I bought the sport-weight to make a lace crochet shawl and it's turning out lovely. It will make a lovely warm gift.

 Softer than Kitten Fur 2 of 12 
 Review by: CarolynH Jan 21, 2014 
 Rating: 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
 Product reviewed: Shibui - Baby Alpaca DK
The yarn is amazingly soft. The color is gorgeous--I bought the raspberry. A couple of knitting friends and I got together and I brought the yarn. I could barely get it back. It's working up beautifully and is definitely worth the price. This should be a beautiful shawl when I'm finally finished.

 Gorgeous yarn 3 of 12 
 Review by: CarolynH Mar 06, 2013 
 Rating: 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
 Product reviewed: Lorna's Laces - Shepherd Sport
I love this yarn. I wish I could have it in every color. Unfortunately it's expensive because I need several skeins so I have to limit my purchases. Shepherd Sport is wonderful to work with and knits up beautifully. I've made a few shawls with this yarn and highly recommend it for that special project for a close friend or family member.

 An economical favorite 4 of 12 
 Review by: CarolynH Mar 06, 2013 
 Rating: 4 out of 5 (4 out of 5)
 Product reviewed: Cascade - Cascade 220 Sport
This is a favorite sport-weight yarn that doesn't break the bank. I use it for a favorite shawl pattern that requires over 900 yards. I just wish it came in more colors.

 Another Lovely pattern from Brooklyn 5 of 12 
 Review by: CarolynH Mar 06, 2013 
 Rating: 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
 Product reviewed: Brooklyn Tweed - Brooklyn Tweed Patterns - Guernsey Wrap
Haven't made this wrap yet but it's on my list. I recommend that anyone that likes the look of this wrap, should visit the Brooklyn Tweed site to see all of their wonderful patterns. A few years ago our guild hosted Jared for a weekend of the workshops he teaches and he was very informative and even our advanced knitters learned new techniques. Knowing JB, they probably have all the Brooklyn Tweed patterns.

 A Favorite winter shawl yarn 6 of 12 
 Review by: CarolynH Feb 11, 2013 
 Rating: 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
 Product reviewed: Cascade - Cascade 220 Sport
This is one of my favorite yarns that I use to make warm, winter shawls for friends. The colors are gorgeous, the yarn soft and the recipients very happy to receive the finished shawl. It's also a very economical yarn.

 Soft yarn for scarves 7 of 12 
 Review by: CarolynH Jan 11, 2012 
 Rating: 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
 Product reviewed: Koigu - KPM Solid
With this yarn I'm making a long scarf in one of my favorite cables and lace stitch patterns. The yarn is wonderful. I love all the variegated colors of Koigu but wanted a solid. This is a beautiful solid with the intensity of their other yarns. Soft and silky looking, it will probably be appropriated by a friend the first time I wear it. But I'm already thinking of using this yarn for a lace shawl pattern.

If I had the time and money I'd make at least half the sweaters in this issue. There is also an article on Shetland Lace.

 Beautiful yarn, beautiful project 10 of 12 
 Review by: CarolynH Jul 29, 2011 
 Rating: 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
 Product reviewed: Cascade - Cascade 220 Superwash Sport
I love the Cascade yarns. I was taking an online Shetland shawl class that used sport-weight yarn. I love the Lake Chelan color and the shawl is working up beautifully. I ordered the yarn on a Thursday morning and it was waiting for me Saturday at my PO box. The only way Jimmy's can be any faster is if they ship as soon as I think about ordering yarn. They are awesome.
