Plymouth - Bazinga
My favorite for a quick infinity scarf 5 out of 5
I have tried other yarns when I get in a pinch and need a quick but high impact gift. Nothing performs like Bazinga. My nail tech gave me a Christmas present ????!!!WTC??? and though I admitted I hadn't one to give her, I promised her a scarf. She loves it and thinks she'll have to hide it from her teenaged daughter.

Muench - Big Baby
Always Comes Through 5 out of 5
I had given up on three other baby blanket yarns. All of them were splitty or had so much cotton that they made my hands hurt and discouraged me. So I returned to my favorite baby blanket yarn: Big Baby!

Schachenmayr original - Lumio
For an acrylic, it's pretty good. 4 out of 5
I didn't fully read the description duh, so I thought I was getting a yarn with a sparkle instead of a reflector. Doesn't matter since I ordered a metallic to put alongside this. I generally don't care for acrylic yarn, but I was using this for a gift for someone who hates taking special care with clothing and accessories. It is prefect for her. I knit a large cowl in the Capri color, which is actually more of a deep turquoise than the photo, but that's OK, too. Not only does she have the bling she requested from the metallic Gold Rush I added to it I got it from a competitor since JBW doesn't carry metallic yarns., but she can also use her cowl at night as a deterrent to getting run over by cyclists while walking on the track at night in January and February. Win!

Malabrigo - Worsted Merino
Soft as a baby's bottom 5 out of 5
As soft as this yarn is, you would think that it would fall apart. Not so. I felted this into a purse for a co-worker and now everyone wants one. I'm sorry I had to felt it but at the time it was the only feltable wool in the right color in my LYS. I ran out and they had no more, so of course I went to JBW! Love ya'll!

Haven't Used Yet but Love It 5 out of 5
This was emergency yarn ordered when I thought another yarn was out of stock from another company. The other came in, so I used that, but I will use this yarn. The only reason I'm not using it immediately is that I did two other Christmas gifts with this color in different yarns - one was a huge sweater - and I'm sick of the color right now. Maybe this fall I'll do another infinity scarf.

Trendsetter - Cherie
Beautiful for accessories 4 out of 5
I've not knit with this yarn yet due to an inflamed tendon, but it will be perfect for a potato chip scarf for the fall. Cooler climates will find it perfect for summer scarves, but here, it's already 92 and I want NOTHING around my neck - not even a small necklace!

Lorna's Laces - Angel
Haven't used it , but oh, my! 4 out of 5
I wiil use this for baby socks when my hand/wrist heals. It's the perfect weight and fiber content for baby socks. I've never been able to knit socks, so I'm oping the mini-version will prove simple enough for me.

If This Yarn Were Bubblebath... 5 out of 5
...I would bathe in it. I am not that great knitter, but this yarn makes my pieces look better. I am partial to DK weight anything. It's not as soft as baby yarn, but it holds up better. The color is so luscious that I keep expecting to smell apricots or roses. I did a potato chip scarf with it and bought another skein for my stash with no project in mind so I'll have it when I get good enough to do something more complex.

Be Sweet - Bambino Taffy
Rustic cuteness 4 out of 5
I used this for a newborn cap. His parents are real back-to-the-Earth types and I wanted to make sure it was Earth-friendly but still very soft. It was a little more difficult to knit with since it was cotton and bamboo, but since it was such a small item, it was fun! One ball was more than enough.

Noro - Aya
Pleasant between the fingers 4 out of 5
I am knitting a summer afghan with this yarn as the basis of my square colors. I knit one with the Noro , then with another yarn. Each time I come back to the Noro, I say, Ahhh! for the feeling and the look of it.
