Maybe everyone else already knows this, but Knit Picks now has Shine in worsted weight! (http://www.knitpicks.com/yarns/itemid_5420140/yarn_display.aspx)

Not great yardage, but it looks awfully pretty!

Gah!! :shock: :cheering:

Shine (http://www.knitpicks.com/yarns/itemid_5420122/yarn_display.aspx) - has new colors

Crayon (http://www.knitpicks.com/yarns/itemid_5420121/yarn_display.aspx) - has new colors

And i have to wonder if they're having computer problems since all the yarn on page 1 say they are $99,999,999.00 / ball. Whoa! :shock:

:roflhard:

Oh, and is Twirl (http://www.knitpicks.com/yarns/itemid_5420131/yarn_display.aspx) new?

I needed a yarn like Shine that was worsted and wasn't happy with my other options!

Everyone seems so excited about "Shine". I'm not familiar with this yarn. What have you all made with it?

I did just get an email about Main Line. I must have discovered them right after they went up!

I've actually never used Shine, but I'm tempted to try it out now! And Main Line looks lovely too.

Boy, I had hoped they would produce a worsted weight cotton--but , didn't think it would happen this fast Wooohoooo!!

I :heart: knitpicks!!


being from the south necessitates using cotton for almost everthing I knit. Even in the dead of winter a bulky cotton is all that is needed.

My timing is awful. I ordered a bunch of Merino Style for a sweater yesterday afternoon, then I check my e-mail this morning and see they have new yarn. Figures. Better on my budget anyway!
