 Product reviewed: HiKoo - Simplicity
Used as a DK wgt for a baby dress. Very easy to work with and beautiful stitch definition. So soft! Easy care. I machine washed and used the dryer to dry to damp and my gauge didn't change a bit. I dislike superwash yarns that stretch and become limp when they hit the water so I'm really impressed! The Iris Blue and White look gorgeous together!

 Product reviewed: Classic Elite - Cerro
I really like this yarn! I'm making a baby sweater and I'm very pleased with the smoothness and wonderful stitch definition. It's very soft with a light sheen. It's one cotton that does not hurt my hands even after hours of knitting. I'll be re-ordering!

Used 4 in red for a baby shirt. Nice quality 1/2 button. The shank is low and nearly flush so nothing to poke baby :

 Product reviewed: Knitter's Pride - Nova Cubics Special Interchangeable Needle Tips
Wonderful needle tips! Smooth where it joins to cord, no snagging and doesn't loosen. I'm hoping they will become available in sizes smaller than US #6.

 Product reviewed: Berroco - Comfort Sock
I'm using this for baby clothes and it's wonderful! Soft, washable, good yardage/price and it doesn't split or snag like the worsted and dk versions. I'd like to use it more often but the color selection is very limited.

 Product reviewed: Knitter's Pride - Nova Cubics Fixed Circular Needles
I had heard square needles help to even tension but I wasn't happy with the more expensive brand and returned them. JBW customer service recommended Nova Cubics. I'm very happy to say it's true, my tension is more even. The needles are very smooth, with no snagging at needle/cord join. Nice sharp tips and a flexible cord.

 Product reviewed: Universal Yarns - Bamboo Pop
I've searched for a lighter cotton or cotton blend for warm weather projects and took a chance on this. I love it! It knits up evenly with a nice drape and a light sheen. It doesn't have that heavy feel some cottons do, perhaps it's the bamboo. Washes well and doesn’t grow as the day goes on. I wish there were more choices in the solid colors.

 Product reviewed: Plymouth - DK Merino Superwash
A lovely yarn that's a joy to knit! No problems with splitting and no knots in the 5 skeins I've used. Finally a superwash that doesn't lose stitch definition or become limp and floppy after washing. It's very soft and has a springy texture that's perfect for baby items. I made a cardigan and was really impressed that the 1112 Red DID NOT bleed at all.

 Disappointed by Pure Wool line AGAIN! 10 of 11

 Product reviewed: Rowan - Pure Wool 4 ply
I rarely feel bad enough about a yarn that I come back and leave a negative response but this is my 2nd bad experience with the Rowan's Pure Wool line. Both the 4 ply and the DK versions behave well UNTIL they are washed. Then the fabric becomes so limp that all stitch definition is lost. I understand that's the accepted compromise when using superwash wools but what is not acceptable is the amount the fabric grows measured in inches and completely changes the sizing. I did have some success with cautiously machine drying the 4-ply. But, this is baby gift and I doubt the parents will appreciate the involved care especially with a newborn in the house. Isn't that the point of using superwash, easier care? I expected more from Rowan... BTW, the dk project is a goner.
