Yay Knitpicks is right!
Those books I ordered were only $27 each. Unheard of! I love them. I just ordered my first batch of yarn from them about three weeks ago, too.
So far I love everything about Knitpicks.
In fact, last night I played with my Knitpicks yarn even though I was supposed to be finishing up another project I designed for a different yarn company.
This is the......eighth design they've bought from me. Hopefully there are more in the near future. Some of the designs are crocheted, but some are knit. When they get published (takes forever!) I'll point them out to all of you.
