Jimmy Beans Wool - Craftvent Calendar
Good value, treats not so much 4 out of 5 stars
I purchased the Starry Night color and really like the yarn selection. The other little boxes contained various notions, from Cocoknits ring markers, Clover tapestry needles to Knitters' Pride t-pins and yarn cutter. I could have done without the treats hot chocolate mix and an apple tea. The box is quite sturdy and will be useful for holding other little things later. For a newer knitter, this is a bargain as you can build up your notions collection. If you're more experienced, you probably would have liked more yarn. Maybe that could be an option if JBW will make this box a yearly offering.

Spark - Exclusive JBW Stitch Markers
Great markers 5 out of 5 stars
I enjoy these very much and buy a set whenever there's a limited edition available. To answer another reviewer - do not pull these apart in an attempt to slip them onto a stitch. Simply slip the marker onto your needle. Smaller needle sizes work best although these are absolutely perfect if you use Kollage Square needles.

Spark - Exclusive JBW Stitch Markers
If you like square needles - try these markers! 5 out of 5 stars
I was pleasantly surprised how much better my knitting experience using square needles was using these square markers. It's also a lot of fun seeing what designs Spark comes up with each month.

Nelkin Designs - Cambio Cowl
Had fun with this pattern 5 out of 5 stars
The pattern was easy to follow and the yarn was one I wanted to try. It's really important to make a gauge swatch to ensure you'll have enough yarn for the project. It was a gift and the recipient loved it.

Lantern Moon - Circular Compact Zip Cases
Love Lantern Moon 5 out of 5 stars
I bought this case to hold a few circular needles and basic notions while traveling. Lantern Moon does not disappoint. Their attention to detail including the ribbon pull threaded through the zipper and construction is top notch. I have a few of their items and all have held up over the years. Highly recommended.

della Q - Edict Cotton Pouch (Style 118-2)
Snarky comment for a necessary item 5 out of 5 stars
Who doesn't need more organization? della Q is known for their items. This is a simple, well constructed bag with a quirky statement. I was able to fit four yarn balls, needles and some basic notions in this bag. Great item to give or keep for yourself.

Chicken Boots - Stitch Marker Pouch
Mr. Spock! 5 out of 5 stars
It was a no brainer for fans of the Star Trek series and films to purchase this one. It's a great tribute to Leonard Nimoy. I have other Chicken Boots products and this little pouch is another great addition. You might even get away with using it as a small wallet as it can fit a few cards and cash inside.

Miss Babs - Kaweah
Love Miss Babs! 5 out of 5 stars
I have ordered from Miss Babs before so when I saw Jimmy Beans was offering their Kaweah, it was a no brainer to purchase some. This is such lovely stuff. Great stitch definition and very soft. If you're a little bit of a tight knitter, you can even go up to a size US 8 with great results.

Offhand Designs - Switch Clutch
Love, love, love Offhand cases 5 out of 5 stars
Yes, they cost a little more. But they're made right here in the USA and the quality is excellent. This is my third case and it always elicits admiring glances and comments. Be on the lookout when it goes on sale. It's worth every penny.
