CoopKnits - Socks Yeah!
Nice to have 50g size 5 out of 5 stars
CoopKnits is a very fine yarn with a gauge of 9 sts per inch. Perfect if you don't want bulky socks. The stitch definition is great. I also really like that if comes in 50g skeins so I can buy two colors for the same pair of socks. I needed to move down to a US Size 0 needle in order to get gauge.

Namaste - Knitter's Crossbody Bag
Namaste bag to the next level 5 out of 5 stars
I'm so lucky to live near the JB store in Reno. We got a sneak peek at the bags and were able to take a close look at all of them. The buzz in the store that night was all about the color palette and the details. It was really hard to pick a style and color. I picked the Crossbody Bag because it was just the right size to act as an everyday bag too. The backpack was my second choice and will be on my holiday wish list. The quality is better than the Namaste bags I bought at Stitches several years ago. You can tell Laura Jimmy spent a ton of time thinking about both the features and the quality. Full disclosure - I do teach some classes at the store but I have been a JB customer since they opened in Truckee 16 years ago so this is my customer side and pocket book talking!

Rowan - Baby Cashsoft Merino
Great for kids and your sport weight knitting 5 out of 5 stars
Looking for a nice replacement for Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino? This is it. Same gauge, nice colors. I only wish they would call it Sport Cashsoft because it is definitely not just for babies.

Jimmy Beans Wool - Jimmy's Journey Marketplace
Perfect holiday gift, glamorous and fun. 5 out of 5 stars
Hi. I need to tell you up front that I teach at JImmy Beans so this is an insiders scoop. I have never seen everyone go so crazy over a product staff and customers as we did over these shawls. They are very light to wear, I didn't want to take mine off. The hand embroidery is amazing. I bought 4 as gifts and my MIL already opened hers birthday. She loves it too!

Muench - Family
Soft to knit with, great for kids knits 4 out of 5 stars
This is the only non-natural yarn I really like to knit with. It's super fast for kids blankets, very soft and is washable. Great value.

Malabrigo - Silky Merino
So soft and lovely to knit with 5 out of 5 stars
I love knitting with this yarn. Delightful to work with, nice drape, not too heavy. It looks like it will pill so I use it on scarves, shawls and hats.

Debbie Bliss - Andes
Amazing color saturation and softness 5 out of 5 stars
Loved this yarn at first touch. Super soft, deep color. I would be a bit concerned about pilling so will use accordingly.
