I needed a caddy for my growing circular needle stash and this one seemed right as to price and practicality. What really sent me over was this eggplant color that I can't seem to get enough of this season. Each file holds at least three circulars there are plenty of files for your average indulgent knitter who likely has several lengths per needle size. I'd actually like to see Namaste broaden the scope and create a similar pattern file it isn't all on-line! Very handsome and functional.
My son picked these cowl buttons they are quite beautiful and ruggedly right for a young man's accessory, though I covet them as well.... Not inexpensive, they are however, perfect for neck wear, as anything rounded tends to slip out of the buttonhole. I adore natural accouterments and if you only need one or two, don't hesitate....details make the difference.
I love working with this yarn and have made more "gauntlets" with it than I can count. The stitch definition is superb, the hand is dry yet slippery enough to make knitting swift. The yarn isn't stretchy, though the fabric it creates will stretch a bit over time. The slight tweed and nubbiness are extremely attractive and cables pop! Not itchy in the least for having the silk factor. I'm guessing this yarn has been overlooked and given the price, it is a treasure. Try a glove or fingerless and you will be hooked. Can't wait to make my matching cowl. The colors are deep and rich. Highly recommended!
