Love all the Lorna's Laces weights yarns. I've used the sport weight for socks a little thicker but can wear with shoes with no problemshats, baby items, etc. You can't go wrong with Lorna's Laces. The colors don't bleed or fade with many washings in the machine but I always dry flat
These are the perfect size for small children's garments or when you only need to save fewer stitches. I know I can always use waste yarn instead but these are handy and easy to get the stitches back on my needles with.
I had purchased this yarn in a different color before and liked it so much I ordered again in one of the new Fall 2012 colors. The colors are even more wonderful in person and the yarn is soft and nice to knit with.
I love knitting with Addis. I have ordered these before, saw I was missing some sized in lengths I needed and ordered from JBW. I know they always have the sizes of Addis I need for a project AND will get them to me super quick!! NO snagging at all on the joins and the knitting is just more enjoyable with this brand. Highly recommend to anyone.
It's hard sometimes to shop on line but I did need a particular look of button to go with a specific project. These buttons are SO pretty in person. Mother of pearl - which was exactly what I wanted! Well made buttons with the shank on the back - and the shank is NOT large at all - which also is great if you intend to put these on a sweater. I was concerned the button shank would be too large causing the button to dangle more than sit well on the finished garment so these will show off more like jewelry accents than cheap plastic buttons from a fabric store. Perfect buttons, perfect size, wonderful quality, and they were available in the quantity I needed(which isn't often the case at my not so local yarn shop) Once again I found just what I needed at Jimmy Beans Wool.
This is one of the most beautiful bright and happy shades of red! It's like a dozen red roses in one ball of yarn. (It's leaning on the orange based red side of red - not a blue base & would compliment any skin color.) It feels soft and of course it's for a great cause. I'm not sure if this is a limited color so I may order more. You can't go wrong with the yardage, the color, the Skacel quality or the price!
Am looking forward to casting on soon.
