 Product reviewed: Denise - Denise2Go
Denise interchangeables were the first set I ever owned, and although I've graduated to Addi Clicks, I still love my Denise needlesâ€and this 2go set is really fabulous to have in the stash. I bought one for myself and one for my best friend to get her started on knittingâ€she loves hers as well!

 great workhorse yarn 2 of 13 
 Review by: Flossie Sep 13, 2012 
 Rating: 4 out of 5 (4 out of 5)
 Product reviewed: Plymouth - Encore Tweed
I love this yarn for baby projects. It's sproingy and soft and light, so long as you're knitting it on the right size needlesâ€go too tight and it loses a lot of softness. But I've made several baby items with this and it always works out well. And you can't beat that price!

Yarn is soft and lofty, great for baby projects and for the price/yardage is now a go-to yarn for me!

 Product reviewed: Cocoknits - Knitter's Block Kit - Knitter's Block Kit
The blocking squares for this kit are very nice - there is fabric on one side, which I haven't seen with other blocking squares (I already have the ones from knitpicks, and they are not lined). The bag is cute, if somewhat frayed at the corners. I'm not sure how long it will last. It's not a fabric bag - more like one of those recycled bags made from that sturdy plastic. The kit only came with 15 T-pins, which, for the price, I was a little surprised - I thought there would be at least 30. In essence, I feel like what you're paying for is the locking blocks, the T-pins and the cotton square, and when there are only 15 T-pins it seems a little expensive. Still, I like the locking blocks and I will make good use of the cotton square, and the instructions are very concise and good to have. And as always, JBW's shipping is fantastic!!

 Product reviewed: Plymouth - Worsted Merino Superwash
This yarn is very soft and has great yardage - will definitely use it again!! One thing is, as I'm getting to the end of this baby blanket, it's starting to pill. Hopefully it will hold up to washing!

 Product reviewed: Clover - Cable Stitch Holders - U-Shaped Cable Needle
These are my absolute favorite cable needles, I love that you can just hook your stitches and then let them hang from the needles. They work great.

 Beautiful colors 7 of 13 
 Review by: Flossie Aug 25, 2010 
 Rating: 4 out of 5 (4 out of 5)
 Product reviewed: Noro - Kureyon
Really nice colors, only encountered 1 knot on 4 skeins, but I may have been one of the lucky ones. I will say that if you are knitting something in which you want the colors to match up from skein to skein, it can be a bit of a pain. I have about 3 or 4 little balls of Noro to attest to that fact - you have to unwind and start some skeins from the middle just to align things. Still, a very beautiful yarn. A little scratchy, but it's wool.

 Product reviewed: Blue Sky Alpacas - Worsted Cotton
No denying that this is some of the softest cotton I've ever worked with, but lordy! Does it pill! Still I'd probably work with it again, it was a pleasure.

 Beautiful colors, rough like wool usually is 9 of 13 
 Review by: Flossie Aug 10, 2010 
 Rating: 4 out of 5 (4 out of 5)
 Product reviewed: Noro - Kureyon
Noro has such beautiful, interesting colorways - this is my first experience knitting with it, and I was pleased. It is by no means soft, but it's also by no means unbelievably rough. I didn't find the "Noro Knots" that Noro is apparently famous for, but I just knit a hat with two skeins, so I suppose I could have gotten lucky. I did have to dispose of a foot or two of the starting color on one skein in order to match up the colors in the hat, but that is to be expected if you're going for a uniform look, I suppose.
