Aw bloody heck! I also see the Dancing sock yarn is on clearance, although the price isn't any different :thinking:

I love that they have solid color sock yarn now!

Thanks for enabling us, Becca! :twisted:

Ohh...I was going to buy some KP Essentials to make the Baudelaire socks from Knitty...but Gloss looks fabulous! I think I need to try that one!

rebecca
07-17-2006, 07:21 PM
Essentials has new colors, too :thumbsup:

I didn't realize that knit picks had interchangable needles now! I must have been living under a rock! Are their tips and cables interchangable with boye? They look similar, and I recently broke my size 10 tips and one of my cables. (it was the cat who sat on them, I swear).

Andrea
07-17-2006, 07:39 PM
Sadly, they are not interchangeable with the Boyes. :(

I like that Swish!!! Now I wish I hadn't bought that Encore at the get together!!! :(

Julie
07-17-2006, 07:39 PM
No, they are not interchangeable with the Boye's. They're fabulous though... :D

Why don't you buy some more, Hild?! :shifty:

it looks like there are more colors for Memories too....and more options in the natural yarns that would be good for dying!

They are FABULOUS :D ....very, very fabulous!!!!

LOL, well, I just placed an order with Knitpicks and didn't even get any new yarn :rollseyes: well, I got 1 skein of Swish to swatch and play with. I had already decided what I was getting...Shine for Bombshell and Merino Style for Cherry Bomb.....and I didn't even deter from that which I had intended to get :thumbsup:

Order the tip you need and the cable size you want, they sell them separately also. That's what I did.

SWISH :cheering:

I'm so happy they have a washable wool!! I've been meaning to make an afghan for some friends who got married but have been agonizing about what to use that won't break my (hedge)hoggy bank!

I hope it's soft!

I am waiting for another REAL clearance sale.

brendajos
07-18-2006, 10:49 AM
their prices for their yarn are already pretty low. i don't think you are going to see them TOOOO Much lower than what they already are. Even when they clearanced some of their sock yarns it didn't go down too much because there just isn't to far for them to go down.

Do a search here. There have been several threads about them. Apparently they are comparable to Addis, not Boyes. :thumbsup:

Oh fer cryin' out loud. Like I need more temptation. :rollseyes:


Is it just me, or do you hear the Gloss calling my name...

hh how is the DNA scarf look/feel on the KP elegance?

I love it... It has a great sheen, it shows the pattern well and it's lovely and soft. I'm using it in oatmeal and it's very pretty. The only drawback is that the scarf is a little narrower than i would have liked since Elegance is DK weight (which is what the pattern calls for), so if i were to use it again i think i'd extend out the border pattern or the area around the cables a bit to widen the scarf overall.



btw, i think KP's Quarry "Ubatuba" is my favorite yarn name of all time!! :roflhard:

-hh

brendajos
07-18-2006, 01:37 PM
one of the home improvement stores around here has kitchen counter tops available in Ubatuba granite....i love that name too and i almost think it is worth buying a house so i can put that in my kitchen so i have a reason to say it all the time! :rofling:

thanks and ubatuba is funny sounding. i wonder if it means something? my OS is ubuntu which translates from several african languages to mean "humanity to others" but my husband calls it "the wifes alternative to debian" hes a geek. im only geeky about art and music. the various linux incarnations have frustrated me to no end. ubuntu is friendly though.

i have a tendency to run at the mouth. :blush: :lol:

I just checked and it looks like they added another new yarn. Essential Tweed! I wonder how many more they are adding?

Oh, you don't help, you don't help at all. I just spent $80 on yarn on my honeymoon, I don't think my DH will let me spend any more money right now. Damn.

rebecca
07-18-2006, 08:27 PM
Hmmmm...I bet they aren't yet done with the new yarns :shock: You know, they usually send out the weekly email to announce new things, and I think that's on Mondays...so, perhaps there will be still more new yarns :cheering: :cheering:

Nikki
07-18-2006, 08:46 PM
I placed an order, oh that GLOSS!, can't wait to get it and as long as I was there.....thanks for the heads up.

They just added a new one Telemark! :cheering:

and now there's some new heathered WOTA!!!

07-19-2006, 07:49 PM
Whoa... that heathered WOTA is NICE...

Black Cherry.... *drool!!*

rebecca
07-20-2006, 11:28 AM
AND.....yet, another new yarn, Telemark (http://www.knitpicks.com/yarns/itemid_5420152/yarn_display.aspx)....I knew that they weren't done ;)

07-20-2006, 03:10 PM
I was just on the KnitPics site and it looks like they have taken down all of the new yarn.

brendajos
07-20-2006, 03:31 PM
:thinking: i just clicked the link at the top of the page and they appear to be there. Try this (http://www.knitpicks.com/yarns/yarn_list.aspx?categories='542'&searchType=Category&titleName=KnitPicks) link maybe

suecq
07-20-2006, 03:46 PM
Thanks,
the linked worked fine. I could not find the new yarns when I went directly to the KP site.

brendajos
07-20-2006, 03:51 PM
for whatever reason, i find that when i go directly there i have to search for the yarns more than i do when i link directly from here. just the way they come up i guess.


Rebecca have you got your play ball of Swish yet?

07-20-2006, 04:30 PM
Does anyone else think that Gloss would make an amazing Lucky Clover Wrap from SnB Nation??? Yummers.

rebecca
07-20-2006, 05:24 PM
Nope, not yet. I just checked and my shipment is at the sortation center in Atlanta where it normally stays for a few days...so, I guess I'll have it midweek next week.

brendajos
07-20-2006, 05:26 PM

Another yarn dieter here. This is worse than being on a real diet when the chocolate cake is getting past!

Julie
07-21-2006, 07:26 PM
I'm bummed that the WOTA Bulky doesn't come in a natural color...I've been hunting for an affordable natural-colored bulky yarn (for a large aran project) for a few months...the yardage and price are fantastic, but no light colors even. :crying:

the new wota colors are at the top of the original wota page... "new fall heathers" or someting.

AidanM
07-21-2006, 08:53 PM
I'm REALLY excited about the Swish Superwash. It's more expensive than my Wool-Ease, but it's also 100 percent wool! And it's WAAAY cheaper than any other superwash for a comparable yardage that I've seen.

Jan in CA
07-21-2006, 09:38 PM

Well....my yarn arrived today! I am loving the new Swish (https://www.knitpicks.com/yarns/itemid_5420153/yarn_display.aspx)!! Albeit, I've not tortured it yet...i just opened the box (18 balls of Shine Worsted and 9 Merino Style) and have been fondling the Swish...it's quite soft...I see many, many projects using Swish in my future :thumbsup:

amy
07-25-2006, 03:53 PM
OMG Becca, that stuff sounds fantastic. Washable and soft and 100% wool? ....Sounds like perfect baby-item yarn!

Hey, just a reminder folks, if y'all click on the Knitpicks ad that appears here in the forum, before you order, I'll get a percentage of your order to support this site. No need to empty your cart if you've already stocked it; I think if you click on the ad before completing the purchase, it will work--just make the purchase within 7 days of the last ad-click. This is how they pay for their ad spot here on KH, by giving me a kickback from orders from people who come from this site. ;)

Enjoy, Becca, the yarn looks great! :inlove:

I received my Swish order yesterday also. It is really soft. I am using it to make Tempting from knitty. So far so good. It may just be me but man does it slide on my denise's! Very soft and washable!

Nocturna
07-26-2006, 10:28 AM
Gaaaah, all of those yarns look yummy... I still consider myself a newb knitter, and I haven't started loveloveloving yarn the way most here do, but its catching up with me! I didnt think that if I went to knitpicks I'd want all of the yarn.... but I did. :shock: That can't be a bad thing, right?

Oh and Becca, what color green is that? Its so pretty! My friend would love a scarf in that color.

rebecca
07-26-2006, 11:18 AM
Isn't it yummy?! Andrea, it's Shine Worsted (https://www.knitpicks.com/yarns/itemid_5420140/yarn_display.aspx) in the "grass" colorway :D

CateKnits
07-26-2006, 11:28 AM
I ordered four different colored balls of Swish last week to check out the colors. I'm planning to use it for a striped cardigan and they don't seem to have a color card yet. I'm getting light coral (which I was hoping would be less pink than it seems from Rebecca's picture, so I guess it's out), truffle, aloe, and whatever the gray is.
The package tracking thing says it should be here tomorrow. :cheering:
I haven't decided what I'm going to do with the colors I'm not using for the sweater. Maybe it'll be enough to make some more Knucks? :thinking:

SandraEllen
07-26-2006, 11:37 AM
i decided to throw caution to the wind and bought 6 balls of Swish in truffle for a circular shrug for my SIL. should be here tomorrow! Can't wait!!!!!

rebecca
07-27-2006, 04:25 PM
Okay...more new yarns (https://www.knitpicks.com/yarns/Yarn_List.aspx) for your dyeing pleasure :cheering: :cheering:

Ooooohhh i see a Christmas project for my nephews! They love to make things for their mother so i think i'll have them dye wool and then knit it (or i will) into a scarf for her... Or maybe some socks....

They love being crafty critters!

itsbecca1979
07-31-2006, 02:15 PM
There was a discussion about them, but I don't think anyone's posted in it in a few days so it's prolly hiding somewhere :lol:

rebecca
07-31-2006, 02:30 PM
Yeah, we have been chatting (http://knittinghelp.com/knitting/forum/viewtopic.php?t=15422) about the new yarns since I spotted the 1st new ones ;)
Thus far I've only ordered a skein of Swish, the superwash wool for swatching and torture to see how it holds up...I will say that it is rather soft and I'm happy about it, but I've not yet gotten the chance to work on the swatch.
I am loving the new sock yarns and new yarn colors :D I am especially intrigued by the dyeable donegal sock yarn :inlove:

feministmama
07-31-2006, 07:36 PM
DOH! I didn't see this thread so I posted my own. But someone figured it out and directed me here. Thanks angels :heart:

The engagement of the century is imminent! The ring has been designed, the girl has been found, and the engagement date has been selected (not in this order of course! ;) ) and nobody knows when go date will be once the engagement is underway! I neeeed to get started on that afghan i keep promising myself I will make for them....So tell us girl...is it afghan worthy? :D :thumbsup:

brendajos
08-07-2006, 07:12 PM
harrrrrrrrrrumph!

that's okay....i decided that if i was going to make an afghan for my friends i would have to use a natural color and swish doesn't have one that will work very well.

i put something else in my basket instead....merino style i think?

can't decide if it would make a good afghan if i double stranded it, but it seems like it would! ;)

rebecca
08-07-2006, 07:18 PM
It really is nice and soft :D ...both the merino style and the swish ;)
