I buy most of my yarn from knitpicks lately. It is always where I look first. Their prices are so nice. I am using crayon for a hoodie for my dd. (Hoping to finish it today!!!) I normally don't like boucle yarns but this one is really nice. I would definatly use it again. And I think it would be nice on the hoodie you posted.

Oh okay. One search of the forum with the word Knitpicks and you'dprobably have so many hits it would take you all week to read them. LOL It's also called KP pretty often in here. Their prices are so good I'd say go for it and see how you like them and their products.

I just made a sweater jacket for my sister out of Crayon. It was a little stiff at first. I also had to figure out how to get it to not stick to my bamboo needles (ended up using metal) but I really loved the way it turned out.

Love it!
I'm waiting for my latest order to arrive! I fell in love with the "Tulip and Gingham" socks on the cover of their most recent catalog. I ordered all the yarns and the pattern to knit them. Plus ordered some solid yarns so I can knit my dh a pair of socks. Can't wait to receive it all! :XX: :XX:

I ordered a few books from them and one shipped fairly quickly and one was back ordered. A few weeks after I placed my order I received a phone call from them telling me that the second book would not become available and that they apologized for the inconvenience. I thought it was nice of them to follow up on my order with a phone call.
