Lorna's Laces - Solemate
Soft.. yet sturdy 5 out of 5 stars
I bought the colorway 'Beyond the Wall' and it is a winter dream. Easy to work with, soft on the hand. I haven't worn my shawl yet, so I cannot write to the attributes of 'Outlast' fiber. But just for the fun of it, I will buy this yarn again!

Cascade - Baby Alpaca Chunky
Squishy soft, glorious colors 5 out of 5 stars
I love the feel and drape of this baby alpaca. And of course, Cascade's predictably luscious colors. Keep in mind, this yarn is a chunky weight... not bulky.

Crystal Palace - Allegro Aran
Squishy Soft. 5 out of 5 stars
The heathered tones of Allegro are luscious. Skeins are a bit small for the price, but the yumm factor makes up for it. No itch squishy merino.

Berroco - Modern Cotton
Love the colors. Nice sheen. 4 out of 5 stars
I would rate this as a light worsted - I am working with US 7 needles on a baby blanket. The cotton blend has a lovely sheen and drape - not much stretch. It's a bit splitty, but cotton often is. Love the vibrant colors!!

Freia Fine Handpaints - Ombre Lace
Gorgeous 5 out of 5 stars
I ordered 'Ice Queen' with the 'Siren Song' stole in mind. I was daunted and panicked at the fine gauge of the lace weight... scrambling to return to the firm ground of worsted weight. But I have cast on and flying like a pro. The yarn has a substantial feel to it, even at that fine gauge. I want more! So many colors!

Knitter's Pride - Dreamz Fixed Circular Needles
Warm and sharp 5 out of 5 stars
Love these. They are smooth without the stitch-losing slick of metal, and sharp enough especially compared to bamboo needles to catch a stitch without splitting the yarn. And so clever - each size has its own color designation so you don't accidentally throw together 7's and 8's.

Madelinetosh - Tosh Vintage Onesies
Stunning 5 out of 5 stars
Vintage is sturdy - I'm planning a pair of fingerless gloves with this skein. And the color 'Worn Denim' is better than expected. More in the peacock range than faded jeans.

Cascade - Cascade 220
Harvest Hues 5 out of 5 stars
I bought this color #7824 - Jack O'Lantern hoping for a 'Denver Broncos' orange... and such hopes were dashed. This is more of a burnt orange, more suited for autumn harvest-themed projects. Which makes me just as happy. Cascade 220, as always, is a fabulous work-horse wool, that softens with use and felts like a dream.
