 Perfect for my needs! 1 of 14 
 Review by: Mokihana Dec 09, 2012 
 Rating: 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
 Product reviewed: Namaste - Classic Hip Holster - Eggplant
I bought this just before I went on a beach retreat with my friends. I wanted a small bag that would hold essentials (a little pouch holding my driver license, credit card, insurance card, etc.) as well as my cell phone and a couple of other things. I also wanted it to be lightweight. This little bag is perfect for my needs. I wanted it as a purse, not as a knitting bag. My cell phone fits perfectly in the front pocket and the little pouch in the big one. There is still room for other things I might want to put in there. I love the looks, love the firm but easy to open clasps, and love the color. Win-win all the way!

 Fabulous yarn!! 2 of 14

 Product reviewed: Universal Yarns - Bamboo Bloom Handpaints
I used this yarn to make a cowl, and absolutely loved using it. My cowl is gorgeous! The yarn was easy to use, and the wool sections are firmly attached to the bamboo. I loved watching the colors change as the yarn went through my fingers. The bamboo has a lovely sheen to it, and combined with the wool, the resulting yarn is pretty spectacular. I know I've used a lot of hyperbole here, but this yarn deserves it. The color combinations are beautiful, and I am going to order another skein so that I can knit myself another cowl, or maybe even a hat, in a different colorway.

 Malabrigo Worsted Merino... yum! 3 of 14

If this yarn were edible I could never go on a diet. The colors are absolutely fabulous, and the softness just makes me want to lie down and sleep in a Malabrigo bed. Lovely to knit with, and the finished projects are fabulous.

 Wonderful yarn! 4 of 14

 Product reviewed: Jaeger - Baby Merino DK
I bought this yarn to make a prayer shawl for a friend.  The colors were true to what I saw on the website, which made me very happy.    At first I thought the yarn wasn't as soft as I'd hoped, but as I'm knitting with it, it seems to get softer and softer, and I'm very pleased with my purchase.  The shawl is going to be special for my special friend.  I couldn't be more pleased.  I  had to frog a few rows and the yarn stood up to it well.  It's a pleasure to knit with.

I used this pattern to make my first few pairs of socks.  It's clearly written and easy to follow.  Very pleased!

 Product reviewed: Filatura Di Crosa - Orchidea
I really like knitting with this yarn.  I'm making a summer shawl for a friend using size 19 needles.  It's knitting up lacy.  The little "orchids" can have a tendency to fray a bit, but overall, it's doing exactly what I wanted the yarn to do.  The large needles help whole "orchids" pop out so that the whole thing shows in certain places.  I hope that the shawl will last a long time, but will have to wait and see how it holds up.

 Wonderful Yarn 7 of 14

 Product reviewed: Mountain Colors - 4/8's Wool
I used this yarn in combination with mohair to knit myself my first felted hat.  It was delightful to work with, felted beautifully and is wearing well.  The colorways of this yarn are wonderful (I used Crazy Woman).  Everytime I go to a yarn store, I head for this yarn!

I used this yarn to make my very first pair of socks because I fell in love with the colorway and softness of the yarn.  I was not disappointed in any way.  My socks are fabulous, and are wearing well.  I love this yarn!

I love this yarn!  It's fun to work with, and I've used it in all kinds of projects, including a carryalong yarn on a blanket I'm knitting as well as crochet Hawaiian lei.  It holds together well, and I love the colors in it.

 Snazzy but snaggy 10 of 14 
 Review by: Mokihana Jun 25, 2007 
 Rating: 2 out of 5 (2 out of 5)
 Product reviewed: Muench - Cleo
I was really drawn to this yarn because of all the different textures in it. I liked knitting it and made a scarf with it.  But within just a couple of times of wearing, I found that the yarn snagged on everything.  The metallic fibers separated from the others, and now the scarf looks kind of ratty.  I will cut off the bad parts, but I won't knit with this yarn again.
