Manos Del Uruguay - Alegria
color beautiful 5 out of 5 stars
I have a pattern for a pair of fancy fingerless gloves..having buttons up the back of the glove. I decided I wanted a victorian type of muted colors, and have it be a light flowery mix of colors. The colors of this yarn have all the colors of spring, but are muted, not shocking bright. Love this color. Also, of course this yarn is wonderfully soft, and is knitting up nicely.

Swans Island - EcoWash DK
Pretty Nice! 5 out of 5 stars
Bought this yarn for a hat, which is waiting until I get done with current project. But, the feel of this yarn is very nice, but then it is Swans Island, and their yarn is wonderful. I tend to save their yarn..until I am sure the project is worthy.

Rowan - Baby Merino Silk DK
Love the look 5 out of 5 stars
I plan on making fingerless mitts with this yarn, the yarn feels wonderful! It has a nice twist to fiber, without having a rope like feel. I think you will love this yarn.

Madelinetosh - Tosh Merino Light
So Soft, So Perfect! 5 out of 5 stars
The colors are bright, and the yarn feels wonderful, I purchased this to make some fingerless mitts that will get noticed!! Also I love when Jimmy beans shows an actual knitted sample, with a picture of the yarn. All though it changes with the size of the project...stripes being wider on small items like mitts, longer on large items etc. All said, cannot go wrong with Tosh.

Sublime - Luxurious Aran Tweed
Rustic 5 out of 5 stars
I love this yarn. If you want a rustic country look, this is the yarn. I made some boot cuffs with this and plan on making a matching hat and mitten set with it. I love the colors it comes in.

Spark - Exclusive JBW Stitch Markers
pretty...useful 5 out of 5 stars
these are very nice markers, small enough not to be in the way, yet pretty enough to be cute while you knit. Very fine quality...love them.

Crystal Palace - Bamboo Circular Needles
Smooth finish 5 out of 5 stars
This is a nicely made circular bamboo needle and the price a reasonable. The joins are smooth, and the finish on the bamboo feels nicely done.

Knitter's Pride - Dreamz Double Point Needles
Dreamz are a dream 5 out of 5 stars
I have Karbonz, cubics, bamboo, and each has a plus factor going for it. I love the Karbonz, the feel is nice to hold, but could use a sharper point for fingering yarn. The cubics are nice for my arthritis, but the metal is heavy for small items like hexapuffs, or socks, tend to slip out. Bamboo holds stitches, but tips are blunt generally. Now for my opinion of the Dreams: I first purchased because I wanted a new 5 needle, so I thought I would try this brand. I am so glad I did. The points are perfect, and the finish is like glass, yet not slippery. I do not need more needles, but I think I am going to order a set of these each time I order yarn, they are that nice.
