knitpicks yarn
Hi everyone, has anyone ever purchased anything from and if so have you used knitpicks crayon yarn? I was thinking of using this to make myself a hoodie sweater :thinking: Does anyone have any recommendations out of the knitpicks yarn line?

I like many of the knit picks yarns, and i've bought a bunch of the color cards, which really helps with deciding which yarns to use. i bought crayon to use for a baby blanket, and i actually returned it because i didn't like how it looked. maybe for the hoodie it would be fine, but i thought it wouldn't look good for my project.
good luck!

Are you kidding? :thinking: Knitpicks is VERY popular. ;) I had no problems with them, but they don't ship fast when you choose free shipping.

No Im not kidding :rollseyes: Im new this forum and I just came across the store while yarn shopping and I saw such beautiful yarns with so much potential :inlove: Just think of the possibilities :cheering:

And that of course depends on where you live. I get things very quickly when I order from KP - but they ship from Ohio and I'm in Indiana. My last package arrived yesterday and I ordered it Sunday evening.

I've never used Crayon but it looks nice and snuggly for that hoodie you want to make. Good price too! I've had good luck so far with other yarn that I've purchased there.

I've bought from them quite a few times and never been disappointed. Yes, I agree that the shipping isn't quick when you order over $40 and it's free. (Matter of fact, I'm waiting on something now ;) ) Anyway, I'm currently knitting a shawl in the Andean Silk (alpaca/silk/merino wool blend) and I LOVE IT. I've also bought Simple Stripes to do socks in; I'm not proficient on socks yet, so I'm thinking there's lots of better sock yarns, but I still like it.

They ship from Vancouver, WA which is right across the river from us in Oregon so i get my KP orders fast. Yummy yarn, great colors, cheap price, how can you resist!!

Ah, interesting, they must have a couple distribution centers. All my packages come from Ohio.

I got my order from Ohio too. And I am in Colorado.
I WISH they had shipped from WA. I would have gotten my order in just a couple of days!
