 Product reviewed: Louisa Harding - Willow Tweed
Soft yarn and pretty colors. It knits up well and the flecks give it a tweedy effect. I used some of the peach to make a cowl and bought enough of the gold for a garment.

 Product reviewed: Knitter's Pride - Dreamz Interchangeable Starter Needle Set
yes please! The interchangeable Dreamz are so nice. Made of laminated birch they are smooth, lightweight, and not too slick. The tips are nice and pointy and the join is smooth, just screw on like you do the Knit Picks and you're set. I've already put in a few hours on these and the cable is flexible and I have no problems with snags.

 Product reviewed: Berroco - Vintage
This is going to be the worsted yarn that I turn to again and again. It's washable, durable, soft, easy to work with, affordable, and gorgeous. You wouldn't believe how many times knitters ask about this yarn while it's on my needles. When I say it's Vintage they are shocked. I suppose they are expecting me to say it's a super pricey yarn, I have no idea, but I'm sticking with it!

 Product reviewed: Classic Elite - Sprout
I'm halfway through the sprout tank in the evening primrose colorway which is a very soft yellow. The cotton is soft and easy top work with. The nobbly effect gives it character. The fabric is working up to be a bit more dense than I expected for a summer top (on US 9) but it's not heavy.

 Product reviewed: Noro - Taiyo
Used colorway 29 to make the Kimono Cardigan from the Knit Noro book. The colorway is amazing. The yarn was super soft and a pleasure to work with. Cotton sometimes hurts my hands, but I had no problems with Taiyo. The yarn does go a bit thick and thin. I'd advise being careful when you get to the thin areas as I had the yarn snap a few times, especially when seaming.

 Product reviewed: Addi - Addi Lace Click - Short Tips
I pretty much am using this lace set for all of my projects now and I have not a single complaint. They are super smooth, pointy, easy to join and remove, haven't snagged and I think worth every bit of the price. They are not the brass finish like the regular Addi lace (thank goodness).

 Product reviewed: Berroco - Peruvia Quick
This yarn knits up very quickly. I made a cardigan in only a few sittings. It is very soft and warm. Though bulky, the resulting fabric is not at all heavy, it is very light. The colors are nice and rich (I used the orange colorway). It does shed a little bit. I have more on way for the Aidez cardigan in the rose colorway!

This yarn is so nice to work with. The colors are amazing. I used the Chartres colorway for a shawl and it is amazing. I would buy again and again.

 Bamboo Ewe 10 of 19 
 Review by: LeaningSun May 23, 2011 
 Rating: 4 out of 5 (4 out of 5)
 Product reviewed: Stitch Nation - Bamboo Ewe
This yarn comes in very nice colors and at a great price. It is soft and even has a nice sheen. I made a long cowl and the stitch definition is great on this item. Near the neck the yarn can bite a little. I didn't have any knots or any trouble with splitting.
