Knitter's Pride - Dreamz Fixed Circular Needles
My new favorite 5 out of 5
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.

Cascade - Cascade 220
Great basic, tons of colors 5 out of 5
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.

Knitter's Pride - Dreamz Single Point 10" Needle Set
Beautiful, smooth needles 5 out of 5
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.

Stitch Nation - Alpaca Love
Economical Alpaca 4 out of 5
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.

Shibui - Shibui Sock
Excellent yarn 5 out of 5
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.

Knitter's Pride - Dreamz Fixed Circular Needles
Nice to knit with 5 out of 5
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 - Addi Lace Needles
Wonderful needles 5 out of 5
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.

Debbie Bliss - Cashmerino Aran
Soft and pleasant 5 out of 5
I made a hat out of this. It is soft and pleasant to work with, no splitting and not too fuzzy so that it was easy to rip back errors. I would definitely buy it again.

Cascade - Cascade 220 Superwash
Great all purpose yarn 5 out of 5
This is a great all-purpose yarn. It handles well and comes in a fantastic array of colors. I've used it for an afghan that needs to be machine washable.

Berroco - Ultra Alpaca Fine
Soft and lacy yet sturdy 5 out of 5
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.
