Koigu - Mini Skeinette Grab Bag
short skeinettes 3 out of 5 stars
I also agree. According to my gauge and puff size, these mini skeins are to short. I knit one up, knitting tighter than usual and using a very short tail for cast on and I was three rows short.I would need to change needle size and gauge and then my puffs would be smaller. I had to use another skeinette to finish. I love the yarn and the exceptional colors, there just isn't enough for the puffs. I will now need to use these for a scarf or another project I wasn't planning on doing. I would like to buy more if the yardage made it into a puff. Just a bit more would do it. I think 13 yards is just making it and these are 11 yards. I swap and give ample of 15 yards for this reason, just to be sure they get enough. 13 yards would have made it just right with not much extra. 11 is just to short.

Denise - Denise2Go
To go for sure 5 out of 5 stars
I love this new to go Denise needle set. I brought it to knit club to show it off and ended up needing it right away. I had brought my project and needed to put sides of a vest on waste yarn. I had forgotten it. I used the cables and connector and was able to put both sides on these. Then I needed a crochet hook too and here it was. All in such a nice little roll case. I sew and loved how the case is made also. Very nice set. Made in America too.
