 Subtle glow 1 of 5 
 Review by: NJ Jun 30, 2011 
 Rating: 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
 Product reviewed: Lorna's Laces - Pearl
This is an interesting yarn to work with. The silk gives it a nice sheen, while the bamboo gives a nice firm body to the fabric. I found it exceptionally easy to work with, not the least bit splitty.

 A treat for the senses 2 of 5

 Product reviewed: Muench - Touch Me
To me, a ball of Muench Touch Me is the fiber equivalent of a Godiva chocolate truffle. I made a few false starts with this yarn until I discovered that the simpler the stitch, the better its lavish beauty steps up and glows. I've made simple narrow scarves on the bias: 100% garter stitch, increase 1 in the first stitch and knit 2 together in the last stitch on every other row. The result is elegant AND sensuous. A quick and gorgeous gift for yourself or some lucky friend.

 A very friendly yarn 3 of 5 
 Review by: NJ Dec 23, 2010 
 Rating: 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
 Product reviewed: Brown Sheep - Lamb's Pride Worsted
I knitted a hat in dark green. The yarn has a soft, velvety "plumpness" to it that makes it very pleasant to work with, and I also found it exceptionally easy to handle, not like some yarns that fight you all the way. The resulting fabric feels luxurious and, well, plump. Additionally, I've never felted before, so I got curious and knitted a small coaster-size swatch for a test. Put it in a hot washer and of course immediately forgot it was in there. Yet, at the end of the agitation cycle, voila! It felted up quite nicely. I'm sure there are other yarns that are much fussier to felt. Just a really pleasant all-around yarn.

 Brilliant 4 of 5

 Product reviewed: Knitting at Knoon - Knitting at Knoon Patterns - SnoBuddy Family
I could not have had more fun with this pattern. It was an entire education in one project. I learned how to knit on DPNs (something I'd been terrified of), make I-cord, do raised increases, pick up stitches, and many more. Just the little mittens--they are entirely functional, by the way--were a little master class in themselves. I am not an expert knitter, but I was able to work everything out. I won't even mention the yarn shopping I got to do, as of course I wanted to incorporate some luxury fibers. Because the items are small, it is not a huge time commitment to make the set, and the results are magically appealing. Do not be afraid of this pattern!

It's my first product review. I'm officially crazy about this yarn. Loving the deep, subtle color variations and the silky softness. I especially appreciate the enormous yardage. Sumptuous in every way.
