Love this yarn! 4 out of 5
I used one skein of this lovely yarn to knit a Kindle cozy. It's fast and friendly yarn.

Manos Del Uruguay - Wool Clasica Space-Dyed
A thing of beauty is a joy forever 5 out of 5
This is a beautiful yarn with rich colors, great shine, and a soft hand. It's spun woolen style so it's slightly thick and thin. If you enjoy soft, colorful yarn, this is for you.

Manos Del Uruguay - Wool Clasica Space-Dyed
Beautiful colors, super soft yarn 5 out of 5
The things I like best about this yarn is that it's got beautiful colors, a nice sheen, and amazing softness. After knitting an Ocean Waves scarf, I was so enchanted with the yarn that I got more yarn to make an Ocean Waves cap.

Lorna's Laces - Shepherd Worsted
Splitty! 2 out of 5
I'm not so wild about Lorna's Laces. I've found both Lorna's Laces worsted and sock weight to be splitty. (I knit with Addi Turbos.) The colors are nice, but the yarn is so softly spun that it just falls apart too easily. After I finish my current project--never Lorna's Laces ever again.

Lorna's Laces - Shepherd Sport
Jimmy's Journey Sock (June 09) 4 out of 5

Jimmy's Journey is a nice colorway for spring/summer socks to wear with jeans.  The sock-weight yarn is on the thin side, but one skein makes one adult sock with a bit to spare.

Trendsetter - Journey
Beautiful and soft 4 out of 5

I got the blue-green colorway of this yarn.  The color is truly gorgeous.  The blue is deep cobalt blue with just a hint of sea green.  Very oceanic.  On the downside, I'd planned to use it to knit a scarf for a guy, but the blue isn't dark enough.  I'd been expecting something closer to navy. 

This yarn extremely soft and nice to work with; however, it was much thinner than I expected.  It's a very lightweight alpaca--almost the weight of Encore DK. 

It split a couple of times when I first started knitting with it (on bamboo), but that could have been me.  After a couple of rows, I had no more splits.

All in all, this is a nice yarn and I'd happily buy it in the future.

Nashua - Creative Focus Chunky
Love this yarn! 5 out of 5
I just made the Knitting Bag from "Bag Style" with Nashua Creative Focus chunky yarn in carmine (red).  This yarn was a delight to work with and I'm thrilled with my finished project.  The wool did shed a bit as I worked with it, but not enough to put me off from using it again.  I just ordered enough Nashua Creative Focus for the Book Bag from "Bag Style!"

Berroco - NaturLin
Naturlin 3 out of 5

I used this yarn to make a string market bag.  It's strong, flexible and has a lovely sheen.  My only beef, is that it split when I knitted it with metal needles and it was hard to pass slipped stitches when I knitted it with bamboo needles.
