Lorna's Laces - Shepherd Worsted
Shepherd's Worsted - Queen of Thorns 2 out of 5 stars
I've used Lorna's Laces in the past and loved it for crocheted projects and will purchase it again for that purpose. My husband used Shepherd's Worsted colorway - Queen of Thorns to weave a shawl. The shawl turned out beautifully - light and lacy. But when we put the garment in the sink to rinse in order to block, the dye bled HORRIBLY! The rinse water looked BLACK. I would suggest that you test a small piece or swatch if you want to combine this yarn with light colors!

Mrs. Crosby - Steamer Trunk
Review Of Mrs. Crosby Steamer Trunk Yarn 5 out of 5 stars
This yarn has a tight very consistent twist. I used my skeins to crochet 3 hats and did not have ONE snag or fray. Also, there were NO KNOTS in any of the skeins hooray. This would be a great yarn for beginning crocheters because of the great stitch definition. But, experienced crocheters will also appreciate the fine qualties of this yarn, as well. And, unlike many super-wash wool yarns, this one didn't have a funny odor. I will be purchasing this yarn again!

Swans Island Bulky 5 out of 5 stars
This yarn is very nice quality with subtle color variations throughout. It's soft with a nice feel and lovely drape. I used it to crochet a lovely cloche. I'll be back for more!

Disappointed In Interweave Magazine 2 out of 5 stars
This is no reflection whatsoever on Jimmy Bean's, but I was disappointed in the Interweave Press Winter edition. There is only one pattern that I'm interested in. I did love their Crochet Accessories edition, however!

Rowan - Angora Haze
Review Of Rowan Angora Haze Yarn 4 out of 5 stars
I like this yarn but it breaks easily under the slightest tension. I crocheted a delicate hat with it, but in the future will reserve it for accents and trim. The halo it produces is lovely.
