This is no reflection whatsoever on Jimmy Bean's, but I was disappointed in the Interweave Press Winter edition. There is only one pattern that I'm interested in. I did love their Crochet Accessories edition, however!
Noro has quickly become my very favorite yarn! I truly enjoy each and every stitch while using this yarn. The quality is excellent - strong and consistent the colorways are beautiful and interesting and NO KNOTS in any of the skeins I used for my large project. I'll be back for more of this yarn!
This yarn is so-so and not something I'll order again. One of the skeins was so badly tangled that I ended up throwing it away and it pains me to throw ANY yarn away! I didn't enjoy working with this yarn. It split too much and the drape isn't that great.
