 Cascade superwash is a dream 12 of 29 
 Review by: KGrosz Feb 09, 2011 
 Rating: 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
 Product reviewed: Cascade - Cascade 220 Superwash
The Cascade superwash yarn knits beautifully into soft socks or hats or gloves that go right into the washing machine as needed -- it's great yarn to work with!

 Makes a great pair of socks 13 of 29 
 Review by: KGrosz Nov 02, 2010 
 Rating: 4 out of 5 (4 out of 5)
 Product reviewed: Schachenmayr Regia - Hand-dye Effect
I used the sock pattern on the Jimmy Beans mailer to make a pair of socks with the Regia Hand-dye Effect yarn, and they turned out really snazzy. The yarn does have a tendency to puff up when it's worked over more than once, but the pattern made that acceptable.

 Product reviewed: Berroco - Borealis
The Berroco Borealis yarn knits up well, and its bulk makes the project move quickly. Love the colors of this yarn!

 Good for 2-up sock knitting with 40 cord 15 of 29 
 Review by: KGrosz May 31, 2010 
 Rating: 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
 Product reviewed: Addi - Addi Lace Needles
These needles, with a 40 cord, work well for knitting two socks at once. It especially helps to hold the cord over the steam from a teakettle, as it makes the cord more pliable and flexible.

 One sock magic loop 16 of 29 
 Review by: KGrosz May 31, 2010 
 Rating: 3 out of 5 (3 out of 5)
 Product reviewed: Fiber Trends - Magic Loop - The Magic Loop Booklet
I wanted to do socks two-up, but the Magic Loop Booklet gives instruction for just one sock. It took me a while to figure out how to add the second sock, and then work the two in tandem.

 Review by: KGrosz May 05, 2010 
 Rating: 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
 Product reviewed: Crystal Palace - Maizy
The Maizy yarn knits well and wears well. It's a good alternative for people who can't tolerate wool against their skin and makes a handsome pair of socks!

 Love it! 20 of 29 
 Review by: KGrosz Apr 12, 2010 
 Rating: 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
 Product reviewed: Noro - Kureyon Sock
I hesitated for a few months before buying the Noro Kureyon Sock Yarn because I thought it might be too rough and uncomfortable. But it's great -- the colors are striking, the yarn has thick and thin parts that add texture to the pattern, and the socks are wonderful to wear. Love it!
