I placed an order with Jimmy Bean this morning. Do you think it is too soon to sit by the mailbox! Oh well, it is too cold in Illinois to set up a lawn chair and stalk the mailman.

The silly thing is that I have more than enough to knit here at home, but I am soooooooooooo anxious to receive the NEW stuff!

I think I would rather be a Spring time stalker. For now, I will just watch from the window with a fire going in the fireplace!

you NEED two sets...especially if you are a non-manogamous knitter. Makes knitting life a lot easier.

*laughs* So true.. :)

I would have more than two sets if I could... 2 of each.. :) *that would make four* that way I ALWAYS have all the needles I'll need .. but she doesn't agree.. :)

jan, you have NO IDEA what you are missing :shock: !! you MUST order for knitting! Order from www.kpixie.com or www.knitpicks.com (only 2 places from which I usually order yarn) and then there are all of the accessories.... www.yarn-store.com www.knitting-warehouse.com And don't get me started on EBay from which I order my addi's (as do several people here!)
I am expecting my yarn to finish my clapotis & accessories today...of course it was supposed to be here Monday (which is what happens when you order from someone u are not familiar with :(...but I can deal...as long as it's here TODAY!) :thumbsup:
