Knitter's Pride - Dreamz Single Pointed Needles
Great value--I can't use metal needles 5 out of 5
I like the fact that the different needle sizes come in different colors of wood. Just as nice as my Lantern Moon needles, but at a cheaper price. Broke one within two days of receiving the needles and Jimmy Beans exchanged it painlessly and very quickly through their Broken Needle Exchange Policy. Thanks Jimmy Beans As usual, I can never choose the right needle length and I should have ordered the 10in. instead of the 14in. but that's my fault not the brand of needle or Jimmy Beans.

Madelinetosh - Tosh Vintage Short Skeins
Love Madedlinetosh 's colorways 5 out of 5
Can't go wrong with the short skeins if you want to try out a colorway, just remember its sale yarn and can't be returned. As with hand-dyed yarn the colorway will probably be slightly off from the normal skein line. The color difference doesn't bother me, that's one of the reasons I love hand-dyeds.

Misti Alpaca - Baby Me Boo
Love the colorways 5 out of 5
Love this yarn have many colors, just wish you could get more of some of the limited colorways. Soft with thick and thin places. Just remember to hand wash, because it will shrink some in the washing machine.

Red Heart - Boutique Treasure
Love the colorways 5 out of 5
Hand to return this yarn, could not use for its intended project. Softer texture than traditional Red Heart yarn, but less yardage. I think it would be interesting to use the Boutique Treasure and Midnight yarn in the same colorway in a project. The Treasure yarn has a glitz strand added to the mix. Names are different, have to go by sight when choosing colors.

Madelinetosh - Tosh Merino Onesies
LOVE the colorway of Madelinetosh's yarn 5 out of 5
If you just want to try out a colorway in Madelinetosh's line you can't go wrong with the onesies choice. Just remember it's sale yarn and can't be returned and due the the hand-dyed nature the color is slightly off from the normal colors. This color difference bothers some people, but I like the unexpected you get with hand-dyeds, no two are exactly alike-- just like people.

Berroco - Origami
Interesting texture 5 out of 5
Loved the colorway and texture of the yarn, just could not use the yarn at this time for the project I was planning to use it for, so I sent it back. Eventually hope to try working with it in the future.

Plymouth - Mushishi
Interesting texture 4 out of 5
At first I hated this yarn when I was knitting up a swatch--it was itchy/scratchy all the things I hate about wool, but after washing/blocking the swatch--it was wonderful. Great stitch definition. I bought this yarn because I wanted to try out Plymouth's yarn and the yardage per skein intrigued me. After making a swatch with my first skien. I bought 3 more, which had knots. I guess the more yardage per skein contributes to more breakage on the manufactureing line. Using colorway 10: olive/purple to attempt making an Entrelac shirt from Interweave Knits Spring 2011 isuue.

Crystal Palace - Maizy
Interesting texture 5 out of 5
Love this yarn, it works up just like the cotton version of the yarn, but has the crunch feel of silk. I just with Crystal Palace hadn't discontinued most of its colors.
