Madelinetosh - Prairie Short Skeins
Lovely as always 5 out of 5 stars
I've loved all tosh I've worked with, I think. Prairie in particular feels quite sturdy for a lace-weight yarn. It knits up into a nice soft fabric, but not so delicate you're afraid to touch it. Nice drape, and vibrant colors!

Lorna's Laces - Sportmate
Lucscious 5 out of 5 stars
Soft and lofty, the Sandy Goes colorway is also a great - lovely combination of hues. Winding was also a breeze - a treat to not mess with tangled skeins.

Knitter's Pride - Waves Crochet Hooks
Great handle 5 out of 5 stars
Previously had always used the old aluminum type, which are fine but I am lucky to have early arthritis started in my 20s and sometimes gripping the slender metal hurts. This handle is a huge ergonomic improvement.

Anzula - Nebula
Fun Sparkle 5 out of 5 stars
Overall, I'm a huge fan of Anzula and Nebula is no different. At first, felt a little odd to my hands, but that quickly went away. The subtle sparkle in the yarn really helps jazz up a project.

Knitter's Pride - Steel Crochet Hooks
Great for beading 5 out of 5 stars
I use these tiny hooks for adding beads to my knitting - they are easy to grip, totally smooth, and seem true to size.

Knitter's Pride - Knit Blockers
Such a great tool! 5 out of 5 stars
I absolutely love these - make blocking a little less fiddly. Having both small and large come in the set is also great. They aren't cheap, sure, but you get a lot of blockers in the box and they save a ton of time.

Grellow & Gray - The Sirka Counter
Such a helpful tool! 5 out of 5 stars
I was a bit skeptical re: paying this much for a counter, but I am SO SO happy with my Sirka. I got the LP model which means I can hang it around my neck while knitting so I don't forget where I put it down LOL and tilt it up to read it. I got it mid-way through a project with lots of repeats, and my happiness with the project immediately increase, because I was better at remembering where I was for cabling! Since I knit a lot during my commute to work, not having to keep a pen&paper or knitting app open and propped up somewhere was great. I highly recommend the Sirka for cables, lace, and basically anything with a repeat - or even better if you have a repeate within a repeat.
