 Gorgeous colors, fun to knit 3 of 12

 Product reviewed: Shibui - Shibui Sock
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.

 Glamorous and precious 4 of 12 
 Review by: katrog May 02, 2011 
 Rating: 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
 Product reviewed: Lorna's Laces - Pearl
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.

but TSC Cotton Classic is great to work with, comes in excellent colors, and makes a great finished project.

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.

This yarn has plenty of body, which makes it easy to work with, in spite of its thinness. Love the color as well.

 Product reviewed: The Knit Kit - The Knit Kit - Turquoise (Discontinued)
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.

Lots of pedestrian designs--chunky tops--odd-looking wraps.

 Product reviewed: Clover - Tapestry Needle Set - Jumbo Tapestry Needles - Bent Point (219)
These are my favorites for seaming--I like the smoothness and the curved tip is handy.
