The best part will be when you see the box in your mailbox/on your step. I get so excited when I get new yarn in the mail! Silly, but true!

Me, too! I have a window box that's lined with cedar. It leaves a really strong smell on the blankets and things I put in there. So much so that I have to wash them before they're used. Something to keep in mind.

I placed my first order with Knitpicks and was so pleased with the rapid delivery of my items. :) I received my order in less than a week-and that was because of a Monday holiday!

I ordered 7 skeins of sock yarn...but I have a feeling there will be more ordered in the near future! :XX:

I was || this close to ordering the sampler pack...however I thought it better I knit my first pair of socks before ordering the sampler pack.

I have become SCARILY addicted to yarn. I buy more than my hands can knit.

I now have enough yarn for at least 5 projects. I only started knitting 8 months ago.

Yarn buying is a sickness. I am currently awaiting a shipment from KnitPicks.

It's ok though, we are all with you on buying yarn.... :P

Currently, my love is yarn. I am refraining from purchasing the hand dyed yarn from my LYS. It is SO beautiful. I don't know how I will not buy it.

I am waiting for an order right now! I just got their latest catalog and fell in love with the "Tulip and Gingham" socks on the cover! So I ordered all the yarns and the instructions!! Plus ordered some solid colored yarn to knit my dh a pair of socks. :XX: :XX:

Take advantage of the FREE pattern downloads that they show in their catalog too. :happydance:

Speaking of Knitpicks, have y'all gotten the new catalog yet? Man, if that doesn't make you want to buy tons of sock yarn, I don't know what will. :rofling:

Btw, is their catalog free? I went to the website, but there were some that you have to purchase. (I love free knitting catalogs!)

Their catalog is free. I started receiving them about every month or so after I placed my first order.... :thumbsup:

I just received my first order from knitpicks. I got some yarn for a sweater I am going to make for my nephew and some yarn to try to make my first socks with. I was so excited to see it on the front porch when I came home from running errands, I had to open it up immediately and feel all of it!
