These are the most beautiful needles I have ever seen or handled! Unmistakable quality through and through from the silky smooth finish on the wood to the elegant brass connections. I never thought I would spend that much cash on needles, but I got a deal on an ebony set, so I splurged. When I discovered how much I enjoyed knitting with them, even just gazing upon them, I had to acquire a rosewood set as well.I have had absolutely no issues with the connections working loose, the cables twisting or breaking, or the needles splintering. In my opinion, both sets were money well spent by the consummate knitter who appreciates quality and is willing to pay for it.
I'm not really a bag person. Cheap totes are perfectly functional for me. So it took several months of thinking and admiring before I was willing to let go of $75 that could have been spent on yarn to buy a bag instead. When I opened the box, my heart sang! This bag is awesomely beautiful and well made. So well designed,and the quality is first-rate. I can carry two projects and my everyday purse essentials, and the pocket on the back will hold my pattern. The only problem is now I want one in every single color. Absolutely love the lime green, too. I've already ordered another in eggplant.
Shepherd Sock is a top-notch yarn, one of the softest and most durable on the market. I've been knitting socks with it since the mid-nineties when I first discovered it, and I'm still wearing every pair. Add to that kind of solid reputation Jimmy's fantastic limited edition color line and you truly have a winner! Every month is something new and different and you can treat yourself for just a bit of cash if you go the sock route. With over a hundred colorways, I don't know how Lorna's keeps it fresh, but they always are coming out with a new colorway to die for!
