Madelinetosh - Tosh Merino Light
Very soft, beautiful color 4 out of 5 stars
This yarn is very soft and a delight to knit with. I usually do not care for the thick-thin variation of one-ply yarns, but this one was not too bad. There was just enough color variation to make it interesting and beautiful. I am giving it 4 instead of 5 stars because there was a knot right in the middle of the skein, and knots happen to a pet peeve of mine. I think one of the things we pay for in a good quality yarn is the absence of knots.

Malabrigo - Rios
4 out of 5 stars
Rios is one of my favorite worsted weight yarns. It is soft next to the skin, has a beautiful drape. What's more, it's washable!

Addi - Addi Circular
My go-to needles 4 out of 5 stars
Addi circulars are my go-to needle. I've used bamboo and rosewood needles, too, but I find myself going back to the Addis. I have not tried interchangeable needles or other circulars. Started with the Addis and have remained with them. The joins are smooth. I do like the Addi Lace when I want a sharper point. My only complaint is the cables tend to stay coiled.

Malabrigo - Rios
Soft, washable, beautiful 4 out of 5 stars
The yarn is a pleasure to knit with, and the result is beautiful. I used it for a Two Ribs Infinity Scarf, which I like to wear doubled. The yarn is soft next to the skin and also gives a beautiful drape to the scarf. The only reason I didn't give Rios 5 stars was because there was 1 knot in my skein my pet peeve!

Classic Elite - Silky Alpaca Lace Hand Paint
Beautiful "Before and After" 4 out of 5 stars
I used this yarn to knit 𢯯ore and After" by Churuchmouse. It works really well for this pattern. It's not as soft as Helen's Lace or Gaia and doesn't have the spring of either, but I think the Classic Elite is perfect for this pattern. It's kind of like it has a teensy bit of wire in it (like some of the Habu), though I know it doesn't. I also like that the joins are very smooth. No thick and thin spots. No knots.

Brooklyn Tweed - Brooklyn Tweed Patterns
Five-star pattern and results 5 out of 5 stars
I very rarely dole out a ȥ," but this totally deserves it! The pattern is well-written and clear. Knitting the border is a little time-consuming. I needed to concentrate during the "star" section. The last section was a sprint. The result is stunning! It may be the most beautiful thing to come off my needles. I did mine in a lace weight, which gives the shawl a very open, delicate look. Still provides warmth. Not sure how it would look in fingering, probably just as pretty. It's a gorgeous shawl.
