 disappointing 1 of 9 
 Review by: olimaddy Jul 11, 2013 
 Rating: 2 out of 5 (2 out of 5)
 Product reviewed: Rowan - Summer Tweed
This yarn was lovely to knit with - a beautiful raw kind of feeling and the finished garment looked beautiful. However, .... upon washing my opinion changed a lot. Although i handwashed it gently, i lay it flat in filtered light and it hardened somewhat. It was no longer soft, rather it had a crunchiness that spoiled it somewhat.

 BRILLIANT. I'd love another 2 of 9

 Product reviewed: Fibersphere - Fibersphere - 5" Pink
I thought the fibersphere would be a bit gimmicky and break soon after i got it, but it is absolutely fantastic. It rolls around, keeps the yarn neat, tidy, clean and tangle free. I wouldn't hesitate in buying another

 Product reviewed: Cascade - Baby Alpaca Chunky
This would have to be one of the softest and beautifulest yarns I've knit with. I'm currently knitting Burberry Cowl (2 hanks) and it looks and feels fantastic. I highly recommend this yarn

 Hollywood Pink case 4 of 9 
 Review by: olimaddy Oct 29, 2012 
 Rating: 4 out of 5 (4 out of 5)
 Product reviewed: Namaste - Buddy Case - Light Pink
Beautiful little case with a nice snap button to close it shut. It's great for small scissors, measuring tape, needle, cable holder, .... I just wish it were a little bigger.

 Product reviewed: Debbie Bliss - Baby Cashmerino
This yarn is beautiful to work with. I was surprised at its smoothness - it felt lovely between my fingers and the stitch definition was perfect. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it

 good, but not great 6 of 9 
 Review by: olimaddy Aug 30, 2012 
 Rating: 4 out of 5 (4 out of 5)
 Product reviewed: Trendsetter - Bouquet
The colours are beautiful and the structure is fun but it can be tricky to knit. I bought this to knit fairy clothes for my girls' fairies - there was no 'give' in the yarn which made the garment look uncomfortably tight (even for a fairy)

 PAWS OFF - RED 7 of 9 
 Review by: olimaddy Aug 26, 2012 
 Rating: 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
 Product reviewed: della Q - Edict Cotton Pouch (Style 118-2) - Cheaper Than Therapy - Brown
I love my Paws Off - Red bag. It's small and terrific for carrying around a crochet project or small knitting project (although the knitting needles might stick out a bit). There's even a pocket in there for your keys or mobile phone.

 one of my favourite Noro yarns 8 of 9 
 Review by: olimaddy Jul 27, 2012 
 Rating: 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
 Product reviewed: Noro - Iro
Apart from the occasional woody fibre, and the typical 1 - 2 knots in every skein I purchased, i absolutely adored this yarn. It knits up quickly and beautifully. I've knitted 3 garments from Iro, a jacket (Galliano) and a shorter cardigan (done twice). Apart from the 2 annoyances mentioned above, this is a fantastic yarn and will not disappoint. I'd happily knit more and more things with yarn

 gorgeous texture but bleeds 9 of 9 
 Review by: olimaddy Jul 26, 2012 
 Rating: 3 out of 5 (3 out of 5)
 Product reviewed: Rowan - Purelife Renew
i really enjoyed knitting with Renew. The garment (Periwinkle) knitted up nicely but i found it stretched a bit widthways after a few wears. It's lovely and warm without feeling heavy. A lot of the colour bled when i immersed it in a SOAK bath. Would happily knit with it again but maybe not for a sweater / vest.
