Noro Transitions

This yarn was really a pleasure to work with. Some knotting in the skeins connecting one fiber/color to the next, but on the whole, I really enjoyed working with it. Very soft and seems VERY warm. I made a hat with this, as well.

Classic Elite Duchess

LOVE this yarn. Gorgeously soft to the touch, a pleasure to work with, and something I suspect I will DEFINITELY spend the money on again. One skein of the 14 I used had several knots in it (knots connecting yarn, not knots from tangled yarn), which seriously pissed me off, but the rest were ok, so I'll overlook that for now!

Peace Fleece

On the whole, this was a very enjoyable pure wool. Lovely colors, good stitch definition. I'm not sure I'd use it again, but only because I prefer fiber blends, but nothing bad to say about it!

Mango Moon Recycled Silk

I've knit with several of the recycled sari silks, and this is the only one I didn't toss in the bin. I love this yarn. I know, it's recycled silk. It sheds, I had to pick loads of that wood-like prickly crap out of it, but it was worth it. It's gorgeous, it's soft, I get complimented on it, all the time. Love it. And I throw it in the wash a couple of times each season, and it just gets softer!
