Knitter's Pride - Cubics Interchangeable Deluxe Needle Set
Love my Cubics! 5 out of 5 stars
I have KnitPicks wood, acrylic and nickelplate interchangeables, and was hoping I would like Knitter's Pride Cubics as well. I DO! And they are all interchangeable with the KnitPicks sets. I had tried Kollage square needles and didn't like the joint between tip and cable...the Cubics have a nice smooth joint and it is a pleasure to knit on them. As advertised, sizes run small. But if you swatch and you should, you can easily identify the correct size to use.

Elsebeth Lavold - Bamboucle
Bamboucle is a winner! 5 out of 5 stars
Initially, I ordered this yarn because it was on sale. I'm very pleased with it. It is easy to work with, is knitting up very consistently, has an interesting texture, and will be lovely for summer wear. I would definitely purchase more Bamboucle! Nice Aran weight is versatile for many projects, and I can see wearing garments made with it year round. Another thumbs up for Elsebeth Lavold's wonderful yarns!

Koigu - KPPPM
5 out of 5 stars
I can never remember what all those P's stand for, but I find myself mumbling pretty, pretty, pretty as I knit with it. This yarn is just wonderful to work with! I've made several pairs of Cookie A's Monkey socks with different colorways, and they are some of my favorite socks! The yarn is consistent in texture, the colors are beautiful and these are some of the most comfortable socks I've made. I will definitely buy more KPPPM and maybe even make something other than socks with it.
