Knit Picks Yarn


My Knit Picks order came in today and unfortunately, I am beyond thrilled! The Wool of the Andes is super soft and I love the feel of it. The sock yarn, Dancing, is like a thin tube with some elastic wrapped around it and I am dying to try it. I say unfortunately because I will now want more. I did get a belated birthday card from my father-in-law today. Every year he forgets my birthday, which I don't understand cause it's the same freaking day as his wife's! He also has my birthday this year written on the calendar for November, which is my husband's ex-wife's birthday. I mean I have only been married to Mike for 9 1/4 freaking years, but what can I say. I think the damn check he sent is screaming "Knit Picks". Now, what to order..............
PS-this was the free shipping deal one. That yarn was only $11.24!

Hey! I haven't got my order yet and I ordered it before you. Now, I'm more grumpy than I was waiting for the delivery today.

I received a new Knit Picks catalog today. I've heard some great things about their yarn.

Woo, birthday yarn (even if it is late!)

Every year when my birthday's coming up, at some point Don will come up to me and look all sheepish and ask me "it's the 14th, right?" His ex-wife's birthday is the 13th of the same month and he's always afraid of getting it mixed up :-p

I am getting so jealous over the knitpicks orders everyone is getting.....I tormented myself by getting some of the color cards and now I am in agony!! Your purchase looks great - can not wait to see what you turn them into!

Don't feel too bad about the birthday....my Grandmother calls my Mother every year to ask when my Dad's birthday is.....and he is her oldest son - you would think that you could not forget your own child's birthday, especially after 57 years!

You have to try some Shine! I got Shine in Candy from them. Very nice! Are you going to use the Wool for Felting? If so I can't wait to see how it works out!

The colors of the yarn you picked are georgeous! Buy more so I can live vicariously through you! ;)

*wipes drool off of chin*
I shall order mine tomorrow after the money deposited goes through. *sigh* I can't wait. I've waited long enough. Love the sock yarn colors. Looks great. I can't wait for you to use it either. If I got Landscapes, you think I would need 2 hanks for a pair of socks? so many choices.
