Lorna's Laces - Black Sheep
Only a 3 since I haven't tried it out yet! 4 out of 5
I am sure I'll come back for a better review once I've actually worked with this yarn. But being limited edition, I wanted to get my colors! My plan is to knit a blanket, perhaps in a log cabin type of pattern.

Knitter's Pride - Nova Fixed Circular Needles
Great value! Nice needle, too! 4 out of 5
I like the tips, although I love a tip slightly more pointy and long, like a lace tip. The cable-to-shaft join is ok, I'd give it an 8 out of 10. Nice nickle finish. The best needle for the price - amazingly resonable!

Fyberspates - Scrumptious Sport 4-Ply
Great value! Nice needle, too! 5 out of 5
Scrumptious is the right name for this yarn! I'm making a baby garment and so happy that it's a luxury yarn which is also machine washable!

Lorna's Laces - Black Sheep
Great value! Nice needle, too! 5 out of 5
This yarn is wonderful! Lorna's colorways plied with black, and with the added bonus of being thick and thin.I bought the Rockwell colorway - one I've been eyeing for a long time in the regular yarns. I may also purchase the Zombie BBQ - I don't normally like this colorway but it's got a very different effect in the Black Sheep. My plans for it are either a garment for my husband or a sofa blanket.

Tahki - Cotton Tweed
Very durable and a great value! 5 out of 5
I'm making a market bag from the orange and black colors go SF Giants!!! The yarn is very easy to work with, splits a little, but don't they all? With some care and practice it is not any trouble. I always like that a yarn is in ball form so I don't have to wind it myself. It's nothing fancy, and I wouldn't think that I'd like this for a garment - but for a sturdy bag it's perfect!

Crystal Palace - Panda Silk DK
So soft! 5 out of 5
I am knitting a seed stitch vest from this yarn that I found recently on the Classic Elite site. The yarn is weighty, of course,because of the silk 5% and bamboo 52%, but the superwash merino lightens it up and I'm sure this is what contributes to the softness. It will be a warm garment. I am in love with the jewel tones!

Laura Zander - Knit Red
A bargain price with a percentage going to a good cause! 5 out of 5
I have spent my afternoon reading through this book. As enticing as the patterns are, well illustrated with beautiful and clear photography, my first mission was to read about the designers and their heart-healthy tips. Included is a chapter on heart-healthy living. Tomorrow I'll be picking out the yarn for Jared Flood's mittens...!
