My first order at knitpicks
After seeing every ones stash pictures I had to add to mine I ordered the sampler of simple stripes sock yarn that is 16 balls :shock: Oh lord what have I done!!!! :doh:

You've done the right thing, trust me. :rofling: Hope you like knitting socks!!

I have only done one pair but I want to learn the 2 at once toe up pattern

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!

I am already waiting anxiously trust me my husbank is going to build me a wooden chest for my yarn too I am thinking cedar I have so much to wait for I hate waiting. :(

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 love knit picks!
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:
