I went there this morning to see when the lace yarn samplers I haven't gotten yet would be available and -gasp!- new samplers!

Sock & fingering weight samplers. Now I'm confused! What do I buy? Choice overload...

I'd seen the sock yarn samplers, but the palette are new, though I'd heard they were going to make some up. I know, too pretty eh?

Well, I decided for now to get the fall/winter sock kit with patterns. I can only buy one at a time at that price, but eventually i will own them all (insert evil laugh)!

Well, personally, I think it's terrible of them to make up these sampler kits!! What a horrible thing....to place so much temptation in front of us budget-minded knitters. Of course, they're good prices for what you get---but I don't need to spend ANY money on yarn just now, and am trying to knit from my stash! It's just not nice of Knitpicks to do this!!! :-D

I agree! I thought I could stop spending money there after one more purchase, and here they go making up cool new stuff for me to buy. Curses!

I've been trying to figure out how to justify buying one of the samplers. I bought some of lace and fingering when they were selling off some colors, and I pick up lots of other stuff at the thrift store for about 50 cents a skein. Then I buy closeout stuff at Hobby Lobby. So I have more than enough yarn to knit for a year or two....
