Knitter's Pride - Knitter's Pride Cords
Great cords 5 out of 5 stars
I love these Knitters Pride cords. They are flexible and, more importantly, the color coding makes it a breeze to make sure you have the correct length. I recently bought more cords b cause this is such a great length for rectangular shawls. Also since I have more than one on hand I can use the them as stitch holders for projects that will be in pieces. I’m a Knitters Pride girl and love any of their products I’ve purchased, Defoe sets, individual tips, cords and more.

Clover - Stitch Markers
Flexibility 5 out of 5 stars
I love these markers, just wish they made them in more colors. These markers are great because they are very flexible. I have never had one break. I only buy more occasionally because I lose them or give them away to friends in need. I don’t use it hem on everything but they’re great for determining stitch count and marking side edges on garter stitch projects. I find them more convenient than then looking for the bottom hanging thread from the cast on. I can keep moving the marker up and weave I. The bottom thread. They are super useful.

Cascade - Heritage Silk
Always a winner 5 out of 5 stars
The heritage silk is my “go to” yarn. The latest batch of colors are really beautiful. My only complaint is that I wish they had more colors

Knitter's Pride - Knitter's Pride Cords
More cords 5 out of 5 stars
I love these because of the color coding. For many of my rectangular shawls I find the32” cords unwieldy so these shorter cords are better.

Knitter's Pride - Dreamz Special Interchangeable Needle Tips (for 16" cables)
New try tip 5 out of 5 stars
I gotthesetipsso I could use them instead of dpns. I found my regular tips were ungainly when working in the round and I want to work “ in the round shawls”. I think these will work well without having to make the magic loop which I am equally uncomfortable with.

Cascade - Heritage Silk Paints
Amazing 5 out of 5 stars
I used this color to review although I got 4 colors of the paints which are all spectacular. This review will mostly speak to the colors as I use the solids of heritage silks for most of my knitting. I got the reds, tapestry, and dark forest, to obstenbly check them out with an intarsia pattern I want to knit. All heritage silks are amazing in their working up and softness. The stitch definition is always great. I rarely use variegated yarns because I mostly knit lace but these colors are so beautiful on their own not to mention how well they pair with the solids. I cannot say enough good things about them.

Knitter's Pride - Hand Block Printed Needle Cases
Ic needle case 4 out of 5 stars
I really these knitters pride needle cases, they house a good amount of needle tips and are sturdy and pretty. I do wish they had more storage for cords which is the only reason I’m giving them a 4 star instead of 5

Knitter's Pride - Knitter's Pride Cords
Makes it easy 5 out of 5 stars
I love these cords. They let you know what length you're working with just by sight. I got a couple cables for me and a couple more for friends. I also have the 32 and the next size down for my rectangular shawls. Knitters Pride is always coming up with good ideas.

Nancy's Knit Knacks - The Perfect Notion Case
Notion box 5 out of 5 stars
Finally, the perfect notion box. I do wish the little opening tops were not quite so stiff but that's the only issue. I have lots of nice little boxes for my bits and pieces, but they just that, lots of boxes. They were sturdy and nice but I having to go back and forth finding things as I needed them. Now I have 2 Project can make more if necessary boxes. Each of my boxes contain end caps, tool for putting on needles, locking stitch markers, stitch markers for major stopping points and lots and lots of normal round stitch markers. Everything for a project in one box but still neatly separated. Wish I had gotten these long ago.

Cascade - Heritage Silk
Wish there were more colors 5 out of 5 stars
At this point I have about 8-9 of their colors and plan for more. The silk adds a beautiful sheen to the look of the yarn and it works up wonderfully. It is super soft. It washes and drys on low heat great. Wish I had found it earlier.
