 Nice 1 of 10 
 Review by: ChatanoogaChooChoo Jan 28, 2011 
 Rating: 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
 Product reviewed: Clover - Stitch Marker Rings - Jumbo Locking Stitch Markers
These stitch markers are very nice as they don't snag, and are brightly colored. Jumbo does mean that they are rather awkward at times, but not horribly. I used them on my first project in the round and was very proud of myself in the process due to these babies.

 Product reviewed: Cascade - Pastaza
This yarn it a little hairy, and kind of itchy, but otherwise the color choices are amazing and it keeps you nice and warm.

 Product reviewed: Berroco - Campus
I've gotten several compliments over my hat that I made with this yarn and I used the most simple pattern ever. It's variation between dark and light shades of color is very nice, and it's very warm.

 Product reviewed: Berroco - Borealis
It's a very soft yarn, and the fact that the acrylic parts of the yarn are the colored shades adds a glimmer that you wouldn't see otherwise. My only peeve is that there was a piece that had been tied in a loose knot and when I pulled to test it it easily came apart. I'm sure this either is not usually the case, or is the norm, but imagine if I hadn't caught it and it ripped later on.

 Product reviewed: Crystal Palace - Star Bamboo Double Points
I used this instead of the usual clover, the only differences I saw were that the bamboo is ever so slightly slicker, and the points of the crystal palace needles were not the same sharpness one was more blunt. Still it's good for it's price.

 Product reviewed: Susan Bates - Quicksilver Crochet Hook
I just needed a crochet hook, and I don't like the plastic ones, and this is the cheapest brand of aluminum crochet hook I can find. I only use it to embellish my knitting, I'm not a crocheter yet. It works well for that purpose.

 Product reviewed: Berroco - Comfort Chunky
I chose this yarn because it's a little less pricier than other options. But I still read reviews and tried to get a sense of quality. Well it IS a bargain. Although it's synthetic materials, it certainly does it's job and then some. It worked beautifully hardly had any issues with it at all definitely less than those 3$ chain store yarns If your looking for something that's a step up from the average, but doesn't burn a hole in your pocket, then get this yarn. I doubt you'll be disappointed. I'm making a baby blanket that calls for GGH goa, which is hard to find and pricey. This is a great sub.

 Product reviewed: Crystal Palace - Cotton Chenille
I happened to have a washcloth pattern, and I am a beginner. This is only the second project I've made, so it was an experience for sure. The only things you have to get used to are the fact that this yarn is frailer than the average twisted yarn, and the yarn clings to itself. On my first casts-on, it broke. But better sooner than later right? It broke once more, but I was in a bad mood so I blame myself. The yarn clings to itself and needs to be pushed around a bit on the bottom edge of the needle. I didn't have any serious issues with worming, a couple of stitches here and there might be a bit bumpier, but nothing serious. Also the pattern was balanced between knits and purls, so if yours is either purl or knit heavy I would take caution with worming. Aside from the obvious, this yarn is great, soft, yet still good for exfoliation. Machine washable is a plus. For chenille, it is quality. My only complaint is that the ball comes unraveled kind of easy, but I'll plan ahead next time, because I'm definitely buying again.
