 Great stitch definition in a soft but sturdy yarn 1 of 13 
 Review by: Sophy0075 Jan 08, 2014 
 Rating: 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
 Product reviewed: Shibui - Staccato
I am making a lace-edged cardigan with this yarn. The merino-silk plied combination offers excellent stitch definition in a soft but sturdy yarn. Easy to frog and tink without splitting too. Shibui has created a winner at a reasonable price point.

 Not just for babies! 2 of 13

 Product reviewed: Rowan - Wool Cotton 4ply
This yarn combines the best attributes of wool and cotton - it's soft, smooth, elastic, and not heavy. The colours in real life appear the same as those on my laptop monitor can't vouch for yours! they are saturated without being garish or intense. The yarn offers excellent stitch definition, so it's great for ganseys, arans, and cables, as well as for lace. I wish it were a bit less expensive, but that extra buck probably is due to the customs duty, because this is a British import. Rowan makes many patterns in this yarn, so there's good pattern support for it too.

 The best of wool and cotton 3 of 13 
 Review by: Sophy0075 Jul 23, 2013 
 Rating: 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
 Product reviewed: Rowan - Wool Cotton 4ply
I wanted a soft, lightweight, washable yarn for baby clothes that could be worn beyond the short wintertime where I live. This yarn fits the bill. It has some of wool's elasticity, but feels lighter and has no scratchiness. The colors are vibrant. When wet, the yarn does not bleed. Fun to knit with, easy to tink and frog. Excellent stitch definition. Wish it was a bit less costly, but I guess you get what you pay for.

 Soft, sturdy, and great stitch definition 4 of 13

 Product reviewed: Rowan - Wool Cotton 4ply
Many yarns with great stitch definition are hard on the hands whilst knitting and have a rough feel, even in a finished, blocked garment. This is not the case with this yarn! It's soft in the ball, soft to knit with, frogs without splitting, has great stitch definition and is so soft! Perfect for babies!

 Product reviewed: Cascade - 128 Superwash
I don't know whether this will grow I blocked my FO by spraying it with water, not washing, but oh, is it s-o-f-t! This would make a lovely baby blanket - and who cares if that grows after washing?

Cute. Really cute. Maybe too cute to use. Ok, well, I will use them - for extra special projects.

 Really a Softback Book, not a Mag - and has great patterns 7 of 13

 Rating: 4 out of 5 (4 out of 5)
 Product reviewed: Rowan - Rowan Knitting Magazines - Rowan Knitting Magazine #47
I purchased this for the Harmony pattern, but there are a number of knit-worthy patterns in this issue. Only fault the reason for 4 stars is that Rowan frequently does not give charts but only row counts, so one has to guess how many inches/cm to work a section of a pattern before going to the next part.

 Lots of Gorgeous, Even-Holed Beads Delivered FAST! 8 of 13 
 Review by: Sophy0075 Oct 26, 2011 
 Rating: 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
 Product reviewed: Miyuki - Miyuki Beads Size 6/0 - z9256 - Dk Smoky Amethyst
I ordered these to add to a Budding Shawlette in Fyberspates Nef Sock Plum, and couldn't have been happier. The bead color on my MacBook monitor was the same as what I received. The beads had evenly-sized holes, easy for a beading neophyte to use. JBW sent these beads clear across the country in *three days*! I used over 200 beads and still have enough left for another project. JBW's pricing was entirely competitive with other bead sellers, and better than most. I wish JBW carried more transparent AB colors (how about 9242-Sparkle Pewter Lined Crystal?)

 Product reviewed: Lantern Moon - Stitch Markers - Sheep
Yes, they are a bit on the large size, and they don't fit really large mm needles (but then, I don't knit with yarn that's heavier than dk) - but oh, are they cute! These would be a very sweet stocking stuffer for your favorite knitter.

 B-i-i-g! But attractive and capacious 10 of 13

 Product reviewed: Namaste - The Monroe - Eggplant (Backordered)
Maybe the model is a really tall gal, and that's why the bag didn't look *quite* so large in the photo. It is really a small briefcase. It is, however, very capacious. I can fit a fingering weight shawl in progress, socks in progress, and a tiny 4 x 6 pocketbook in this beast, stuff my cell phone, keys, and a magazine or slender book in the outside pocket. Lots of zippered inside storage and three separately divided areas, so your knitting won't end up smelling like your lunch I also really like that the bag has feet, so the bottom won't get scuffed.
