Cascade - Cascade 220 Sport
A Favorite 5 out of 5
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.

Shibui - Baby Alpaca DK
Softer than Kitten Fur 5 out of 5
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.

Lorna's Laces - Shepherd Sport
Gorgeous yarn 5 out of 5
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.

Cascade - Cascade 220 Sport
An economical favorite 4 out of 5
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.

Brooklyn Tweed - Brooklyn Tweed Patterns
Another Lovely pattern from Brooklyn 5 out of 5
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.

Cascade - Cascade 220 Sport
A Favorite winter shawl yarn 5 out of 5
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.

Koigu - KPM Solid
Soft yarn for scarves 5 out of 5
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.

Beautiful and challenging patterns 4 out of 5
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.

30th Anniversary Issue 3 out of 5
Classics patterns, many looked like they were out of the 1950's. Section on Intarsia knitting. I bought it for the gorgeous Jewel Square Wrap.

Cascade - Cascade 220 Superwash Sport
Beautiful yarn, beautiful project 5 out of 5
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.
