Crystal Palace - Party
C P Party Yarn 5 out of 5 stars
I'm not a big fan of ribbon yarn but this is an exception. Brilliant glossy & shiny finish. Easy to knit & tolerates different gauges. Extra light on the skin. Yes, the ends do pop out but I fixed this by using a touch of Fray Check to seal the ends to the body of the project. Can't see it but keeps the ribbon smoothly finished. Liked the effect so many I'm trying th Fray Check on other knitting projects that need a little extra hold on the ends.

della Q - The Que Theo Secure (145-1)
Needle case 5 out of 5 stars
This is my second dell Q case. Style is well thought out and holds 1-2 pair circular needles in each well marked pockets. I do like the larger fixed circular case better. But then I have a lot of circ needles. We'll sewn & classy look.

della Q - Circular Needle Tri-Fold (Style 1145-1)
Trifold circular needle case 5 out of 5 stars
My circulars were out of control so I bought this case after shopping for a long time. It is well worth the cost. I holds up to 4 lengths of each size unfolded but the bundle is a little too sloppy so I am buying a second in a different color to use each case for 2 lengths of needles. Thus they are neatly folded away. I must say the workmanship is excellent and the case requires a lot of layers & seams. Very we'll made. Beautiful colors. Luxury look.

Cascade - Tivoli
Tivoli 14 Purple 4 out of 5 stars
It is rustic & heathery but not coarse. The knitted fabric is a matte finish with no shine at all. The yarn feels rough to hand while knitting but the finished product is soft. It would make a good sweater very warm but I wouldn't like it as a scarf or hat. I made a blanket for my spoiled poodle & she loves it.

Alsatian Soaps & Bath Products - Knitter's Hands
Apricot Knitters Hands 5 out of 5 stars
I have lots of good hand creams, but this is the one I use when knitting. Light fragrance, no smell or product transferred to the yarn. It is not at all sticky even with mohair or alpaca yarns. A definite keeper for use for all my yarn & sewing projects.

Lorna's Laces - Masham Worsted
Lorna's Masham Worsted Shorewood 5 out of 5 stars
It feels a little prickley knitting into a seed stitch scarf, but softened with blocking. I loved the teal with grey and the visual texture of the yarn. I'd like to compare it with the same yarn in Lorna's other worsted that is is Superwash for feel, but it doesn't have the visual texture so I'm glad I went with the Masham. The yarn doesn't prickle around my neck and I'm only moderately wool sensitive to prickles.

Crystal Palace - Moonshine
CP Moonshine 4 out of 5 stars
I've used it in 3 colors held double on #8 needles. It has a moderate halo and makes a very soft fabric I gave it 4* because it was rather splitty and the glitter lumps were not that appealing to me. The items were well received. They blocked nicely. Warm & soft items.

Vice Yarns - Blurred Lines Sock Sets (150g)
Blurred Lines Sock Set 5 out of 5 stars
Used Middle Earth for a cowl on Kollage square needles. Was a little concerned that the yarn felt a little scratchy and was wrinkled. When blocked however, it was fantastic colors & stitch definition deep penetration of the colors would be happy to use again

Vice Yarns - Blurred Lines Sock Sets
Middle Earth 5 out of 5 stars
I used 1 set to make a cowl. Was a little concerned because the yarn felt stiff & scratchy & was wrinkled while knitting. However, after blocking, it was very soft, excellent stitch definition on Kollage square needles. Brilliant colors with intricate shading. Would use again
