I've become a huge fan of wooden needles. I used to prefer the nickel plated kinds such as Addi. And while those are still wonderful, I've switched to choosing wooden needles as my first choice. And these Dreamz needles are smooth and pleasant to work with, as well as very affordable. They are now my go-to needle.
Cascase 220 is a great basic yarn for all kinds of projects. This time I needed vivid colors for mittens and could get a better color selection with this yarn than with any other. I use this yarn a lot.
I love the knitter's pride needles. I have a set of the double points and bought these single points as a gift for a friend. I wanted to get her something really nice and knew these would be a joy to knit with. They are smooth and pretty and lovely to use.
This yarn is warm and easy to work with. I used it to make several hats and it knit up easily no splitting into a soft, dense fabric that will keep the wearer warm, with no itch. It's not a luxury yarn, but I will definitely use it again for everyday projects where I want a soft, not-scratchy wool.
I bought two skeins of this for a color work hat. The colors have excellent saturation. The yarn does not split. And when I had to frog two inches, it held up very well---not too fuzzy to rip out stitches. I am very pleased. The color work is well-defined and the wool is soft and pleasant to the hand.
This is the first Knitters Pride needle I have bought and the first wooden needle I've ever bought. I have always preferred metal. But this is a nice needle that I am enjoying knitting with. The wood and the joins are very smooth. I will buy more of these.
Addi Lace have become my favorite go-to needle. I thought Addi Turbos were wonderful, but these have pointier tips and I really love that, even when not knitting lace. They are not quite as slippery a surface for the yarn as the Turbo, but still a fast needle to knit with. I love them.
This is a lovely yarn. It is soft and easy to work with. I am making a lace shawl with it and it is gives lovely stitch definition to show the pattern of the lace. It's soft and airy and open, but sturdier than some lace weights that are so cobweb like that I am afraid to work with them or wear them.
