Urth Yarns - Uneek Fingering
Incredible COLORS! 5 out of 5 stars
Haven’t used the yarn yet, but the colors are saturated and intense. Feels soft in the skein. Did I mention the fabulous colors??!

Chicken Boots - Zip Double
Almost perfect 5 out of 5 stars
I LOVE Chicken Boots bags, and own many in various shapes and sizes. This is a great bag for a medium size project larger shawl, etc. or for holding multiple skeins of yarn. CB uses quality materials and construction to make a sturdy product. The large INSIDE pocket thoughtful! is terrific for holding pattern, notions, ball band, even your phone, with the fear of stuff falling out. The only thing I wish this bag had is some kind of yarn “guide,” one that could be opened or closed, to keep the working yarn away from the zipper when pulling from a ball inside the bag. Otherwise, perfect!

Chicken Boots - Clear Wristlet
Great well-designed bag 5 out of 5 stars
I have several of these bags and love them. They securely hold a single ball of yarn to keep it neat and clean. Love the pocket to hold small notions and the ball band.

Lacis - Ball Winder
Poor performance 1 out of 5 stars
I have used a conventional winder for many years and have been very satisfied with it. I decided to give this one a try based on the mostly positive reviews. I was very surprised by how poorly it worked. Not sure if I got a lemon or if this is how it usually performs, but the mechanism of the feeder arm going back and forth was terrible. It was jerky, slow, and uneven. The ball that was forming started falling off of the end closest to the arm, and made a tangled mess before I had even wound a quarter of the skein I was winding from the skein which was securely on my trusty wooden swift. unfortunately I had no choice but to return this item.

Knitter's Pride - Karbonz Single Point 10" Needle Set
Fast and sharp 5 out of 5 stars
I hae been a fan of the Karbonz circulars since they first were introduced. While I don't often use straights, for the occasions when I do I decided I deserved to upgrade my old plastic and aluminum collection. As with the circs, the Karbonz straights are lightweight, fast, and suitable sharp for stitch manipulation. Highly recommend!

Cascade - Cascade 220
Go-to staple 5 out of 5 stars
I have loved this yarn for years. It's my fave for felted projects, but also love it for all kinds of other knitting as well. Is a pleasure to knit with. Has a great hand, washes and wears well. Very sturdy, but still soft. Not to mention it comes in a bazillion great colors!

Cascade - Cascade 220 Paints
Great yarn for so many things 5 out of 5 stars
For years Cascade 220 has been my go to yarn for many kinds of projects. It is sturdy, yet soft once washed. It is also great for felting. With so many colors to choose from, you ant go wrong.

Daniel Miller - Wooden Yarn Bowl
Functional art 5 out of 5 stars
I was lucky to be one of the few to get my paws on one of these bowls. It is a beautifully crafted piece of art. The finish is completely smooth, so your yarn is safe and will not snag. I hope JBW can get more of these!
