Shibui - Shibui Sock
Gorgeous colors, fun to knit 5 out of 5
This is a bouncy fingering weight yarn that also works for accessories other than socks. Watch your yardage, though, as you need two for socks, and the total of the two is 382yds which may not be enough for large socks.

Lorna's Laces - Pearl
Glamorous and precious 5 out of 5
I used a skein of this to knit the 198 yards of heaven triangular shawlette pattern, and it was a nice match. The lace is simple enough that it worked with a multi-colored yarn. And what colors--such beautiful blues in the Royal Wedding colorway. The yarn was easy to work with, the bamboo and silk giving it a lovely handle. A good choice for a special one-skein gift.

I usually don't love cotton 4 out of 5
but TSC Cotton Classic is great to work with, comes in excellent colors, and makes a great finished project.

Lorna's Laces - Helen's Lace
A dream to work with 5 out of 5
I love this very fine, but very strong, wool-silk combo lace yarn. The dyeing is interesting, and the finished products are luxurious and beautiful.

Lorna's Laces - Helen's Lace
Extraordinary yarn. 5 out of 5
This yarn has plenty of body, which makes it easy to work with, in spite of its thinness. Love the color as well.

The Knit Kit - The Knit Kit
New, and, yes, improved 5 out of 5
I loved my other knit kit, but had to add my own darning needle to make it perfect. Now, one is included and they've redesigned the crochet hook to have two usable ends. Great for travel, or as an extra set of tools to keep at that spot where you always end up sitting to craft.

Rowan - Rowan Pattern Books
Nothing to get excited about 2 out of 5
Lots of pedestrian designs--chunky tops--odd-looking wraps.

Clover - Tapestry Needle Set
Classic 5 out of 5
These are my favorites for seaming--I like the smoothness and the curved tip is handy.
