Blue Sky Fibers - Alpaca Silk Samples
Beware, if merino scratches this will definitely do so. 1 out of 5 stars
The yarn is beautiful and should get 5 stars I gave it one as a warning to us sensible knitters. I cannot use it next to skin but may be wonderful for all other uses.

Blue Heron Yarns - Organic Cotton
A fierce cotton - no starch! 5 out of 5 stars
This cotton is nicely textured, it has a firm hand to. It will become a stole/shawl, something that will not suffer if it decides to grow in length. The swatch is very promising. I am looking forward to working the yarn.

Jimmy Beans Wool - Fur Pom Poms
Poshest small treasures. 5 out of 5 stars
I used an ~ 10” quilting threat throught the push button, knotted the ends together and hung it in my closet where they will wait for their special project to call for them. The pom poms , blossomed. I have the natural, grey, pink, red and white and love them equally well.

Pom Pom - Pom Pom Quarterly
Some are a hit, other’s so-so. 3 out of 5 stars
This copy held little inspiration for me, which is OK, the next one might.

Malabrigo - Baby Silkpaca Lace
It is a probem! 5 out of 5 stars
I have several beautiful scarf/stole patterns, my problem is: which design would be worthy the beauty of the yarn, it’s color - Paris night - calls for a dressy scarf or stole, maybe even a cowl? Other that that I have no problem at all.

Addi - Knitting Thimble
Sorry. 1 out of 5 stars
This thimble is way too big for my fingers. I cannot pull tighter it keeps slipping off either middle or index finger. Charity box, here it comes.

Addi - Addi Click Cords
It’s ADDI ! 5 out of 5 stars
Have been in love with the Addis for decades. I have all 3 needle sets and all cords which will be steammed this week and bundled in by length. One thing I do not use is the lifeline, I prefer to take a break from knitting and insert the life line using an 18 tapestry needle = less fuss.

Madelinetosh - BFL Sock
It's a Tosh - enough said? Not really .. 5 out of 5 stars
Comparing it to the merino lt and the sock, BFL the wonderful stitch definition of the sock due to its plies together with the soft woolen feel of merino light. It feels lighter and softer than both. I will use this yarn in projects where I want the definition with a bit more warmth than the lt would produce.
