Blue Sky Fibers - Skinny Cotton
Very Nice 4 out of 5 stars
This is my second order of this yarn. I really like it, it’s nice to knit with and looks great as well. I’m taking off one star though because both times that I have ordered this particular yarn my order has had skeins that even though they we’re tied and knotted they were knotted in such a ridiculous way that they would not even go onto my winder without being a tangled mess. I had to then hand wind, which I don’t mind, but even then it was full of tangles. It’s not me, I’m a long time knitter and I rarely encounter this with any other brand. I wish Blue Sky would figure out to correctly tie and wind their skeins! It’s definitely the worst I’ve encountered as far as tangles go.

Jimmy Beans Wool - Beanie Bag Project Club
Not Re-Newing 1 out of 5 stars
This is my second review. I signed up for three months. The first month Dec. I didn't like the project at all. I'd give it one star. The second month Jan. I loved it, I'd give it five stars and my review said so. This month Feb. I hated it, other than the yarns I'd give it one star. I liked getting introduced to new yarns. I really liked the shawl pin last month and the hand tool this month. Other than that, not worth the $. The patterns are not so great.The bags themselves have zippers that get caught. You can find other patterns for small yardage online, but I'm don with these and will not renew. Thankfully I only signed up for three months. I'd rather spend $30 on one skein of really good yarn than little odds and bits and a pack of wool soak every month.

Jimmy Beans Wool - Beanie Bag Project Club
Fun Surprises 4 out of 5 stars
I signed up for the three month subscription. My first month was Dec. and while I definitely liked the yarns the suggested pattern was nothing I would ever make, I would have to admit I didn't like it much but I did like the yarn. So I was a little disappointed and wondering what the next bag would be like. That said, there are many other little projects you could make with the samples so I will do that with Dec.This morning I received my second Beanie Bag, the Jan. one and this one I absolutely loved, five stars this month! It is fun to have a nice yarn surprise show up.I'm on the fence about whether to continue for a few more months. we shall see. It IS a nice way to try new yarn brands that you are not familiar with.

The To- Go Sets Are So Nice! 5 out of 5 stars
I have the Denise To Go Knit Set and I wanted the Crochet set as well to use as travel sets. I love them, they're perfect for all of my travel knit and crochet needs.

Perfect for Travel Knitting! 5 out of 5 stars
What a handy little item! I have the regular Denise needle set but this is so nice and tiny, perfect for travel! The only negative I can come up with would be that it would make me more comfortable bringing along maybe two more end caps and an extender and one longer cord in addition to what's in there. But I already own those and when added they all will still fit in this case, so it's five stars from me!

Namaste - Boardwalk Backpack
Take away a few Stars 2 out of 5 stars
I rated this item as soon as I received it and gave it five stars. I now have to take away a few stars from my rating. I recently used it on a trip and the drawstring would not stay closed, you really have to pull tightly to get the drawstring holder to work, the backpack was too bulky even though there wasn't much in it, and I had to struggle to get the snap closure to stay closed each time I used it. I was concerned when it rained,that the projects in my bag might not stay dry even with the flap over it as there is space on the sides that remain kind of open since the drawstring cannot get very very tight. Not too happy with it and I'm giving it away.

Namaste - Boardwalk Backpack
WOW! 5 out of 5 stars
This bag is perfectly sized, it's more of a medium size backpack. I love that there is a drawstring and no zipper on top to snag yarn. I have a few Namaste products and as usual,this doesn't disappoint. I prefer waterproof bags, as I very often knit near the ocean. I've been looking for a convenient, waterproof backpack for my knitting and this fits my needs.

I ordered the turquoise bag. It's very practical and very pretty. I love the fact it has four pockets. It's a nice size, not too small, not too big. This will surely gets lots of use!
