ChiaoGoo - Knit RED Circular Needles
12 circs that are comfortable to use. 5 out of 5 stars
I bought these in the 12 size to knit sleeves in the round. I LOVE THEM and put the entire size list on my Christmas gift list for my kids! They roll their eyes, Seriously mom, more needles? My answer is yes! PS, they are very comfortable to use.

Rowan - Wool Cotton 4ply
love 5 out of 5 stars
I insist on machine wash for baby knits, and this is the perfect yarn for baby, so soft. I love the colors too.

Artyarns - Beaded Pearl & Sequins
elegant 5 out of 5 stars
Soft and elegant. This is a special yarn for that very special project. Because of the price I won't use it often, but there is a place in the yarn world for this lovely stuff. I used it as a cuff and placket border on a Kidsilk Haze sweater. Oh my, it's gorgeous and surprisingly easy to knit.

Malabrigo - Worsted Merino
soft but pilly 3 out of 5 stars
I give this an A++ for softness, but a low low grade for pilling. Sooo pilly, I won't used this for a sweater ever again. I think it's fine for shawls or scarves or something that won't get a lot of wear. My sweater was ragged before it was finished and pilling occurred during the first wearing.

Cascade - Cascade 220 Superwash
great yarn for gift sweaters 5 out of 5 stars
This yarn is hard wearing and fool proof to wash. I love it for gift giving because the recipient can throw it in the washer and even the dryer won't kill it, although I ask them to dry flat! It's not exactly a soft yarn when knitting up, but does soften when washing. Great color selection.

Rowan - All Seasons Chunky
lightweight chunky 5 out of 5 stars
I'm not usually a fan of chunky yarns, I think they are often too heavy. I was given a skein of All Seasons Chunky to review, and since I love the original All Seasons Aran, I was hoping to like the chunky version too. It has the soft and wonderful attributes of the original, stitches line up beautifully, easy on the hands and the fabric seems more lightweight than other chunkys. I immediately bought a sweaters worth for Eos and loved working with it. I think the microfiber must make it light.

Rowan - Kidsilk Haze Stripe
love the colors 5 out of 5 stars
I am the #1 fan of Kidsilk Haze so when Rowan introduced this version I knew I had to get some. So much fun to knit, just like KSH but with the color changes by Kaffe Fasset, he did it right. I get more compliments on my simple stockinette scarf than almost any other knit in my wardrobe. Your pattern should be simple to show off the beautiful color changes. I've bot an idea to make a simple pullover.
