Berroco - Folio
Lovely 5 out of 5 stars
This yarn has a lovely sheen to it while still maintaining a soft haze. I'm back for more!

Crystal Palace - Mochi Plus
Color 2 out of 5 stars
Color was way off from what I see on my screen. Not a suitable substitute. I am returning.

Lorna's Laces - Honor
Differences in Color 5 out of 5 stars
I bought this color way in both Sport and Honor yarn. They are unbelievably different in color. The Sport has bright bold vibrant colors. The Honor, by comparison, almost looks faded. Both are attractive. The Sport goes well with violent and purples. The Honor lends itself to pinks. Both are very attractive, just depends on the look you are going for. Be sure to buy all you need at the same time!

Knitter's Pride - Dreamz Fixed Circular Needles
My Fsvorites 5 out of 5 stars
I love these needles! They feel good in your hands, and work well with all the kinds of yarn I use. The material used to make them does not drag on the yarn and the tips stay pointed. These are my first choice in needles. I only wish my LYN carried these.

Manos Del Uruguay - Wool Clasica Space-Dyed
Awful Yarn 1 out of 5 stars
If I could give this yarn a minus rating I would. Unfortunately Jimmy's site does not Allie this. This is NOT a soft yarn in fact it is very scratchy. It is NOT a heavy worsted. The colors are beautiful. It varies in weight from super chunky to a crochet thread weight every 6-8 inches. I didn't discover this until I was winding the first skein I bought 2. Also, the Kit by Jimmy includes a 10-1/2 circular needle. I can't imagine getting 112 stitches of the yarn on a 16 needle. In fact, the pattern calls for a 24 needle. The unwound skein will be going back to Jimmy.

Clover - Yarn Cutter Pendant
Beautiful Necklace 5 out of 5 stars
I put a cord through the holder on this cutter and wear it as a necklace. It is especialy nice to use when flying ...scissors and such not being allowed. TSA has no clue there is razor blade inside. Shooohhh...don't tell them! Not only easy to get through inspection, but makes a pretty necklace too.

Universal Yarns - Classic Shades
Soft and Great Colors 4 out of 5 stars
I used this yarn for a collar pattern that uses Noro Silk Gardens. This is a much softer substitute. The colors self-stripe Lake blends beautifully from blues to purples, Sunset blends bright oranges and violet. Super soft and machine washable with a really reasonable price, who could ask for more. It is a single ply yarn which game me to splitting problems. This yarn now comes in a super bulky weight that looks like it shades just as beautifully in bright as well as more subtle colors. Can't wait to try it.

Laura Zander - Crochet Red
Now for new crocheters 2 out of 5 stars
While I have some crochet experience, I found most of the patterns in this book daunting. I was also disappointed they did not delve more into borders to put a classy finished edge to knitted and crocheted items.
