I think i am in love with Knitpicks yarn! I never expected such great quality yarn for so very little! Here is a pic of what i got today (ok the Malabrigo yarns are not knitpicks but i did get them today and they demanded to be photoed as well)
I got the Merino Style in Pine, Moss, Storm (which is so pretty!), Asparagus, and Coal. For the price is a nice wool, soft and not ichy. I am quite impressed. Gossamer in Leprechaun is very pretty and soft (can't wait to get to work on my shawl with this). What i was super impressed with was the Elegance (which i got in Coal)... i could just roll around in this stuff... so soft and silky, and i love the way it sparkles a little in the light.
The handdyed Suri Dream in Emerald Isle is so pretty and super squishy soft (does shed a little but i expected that anyhoo)... i am going to get a ton more of this to make a throw. Crayon in Azure is a yummy cotton! I really need to get tons more of this. And the Alpaca Cloud i got in Midnight is absolutely beautiful, the picture cannot do it justice, i can't stop touching it!. Oh and i got some Malabrigo merino in Marron Oscuro and right next to it the same in Tuareg (which my hubby helped me wind... i really need to get a swift).
The interchangeable needles are awesome, nice pointy lightweight needles, and the cord is very flexible (i think i might like these better then the addis i have). I bought these mostly to do magic loop knitting so i cant wait to try em out and see how they work. Ok i gotta store all this stuff before the kitties think all this wool belongs to them. Hehe
I am addicted to the color green lol. Green goes well with the red hair. Most of this new stash i don't have anything particular in mind. I know the Alpaca Cloud i am going to make myself a nice lacy shawl, the Suri Dream is going to be a throw, the Gossamer will be a shawl for my MIL. I got the Essential in black to attempt at making socks... <shivers>. I was going to knit the Crayon into wash towels... but its so soft i am not sure i wanna do it now lol.
This batch was to see if i even liked Knitpicks yarn so now that i know what i have fallen in love with i can shoot over an order to get enough yarn to make what i am planning... I have to make plans for all the merino (i am making Cozy from Knitty out of the blue Malabrigo for my sister. This is the first time i have actually bought a ton of yarn at once. Usually i just get a skein at a time. Now i am planning on a much larger Knitpicks order, oh where am i going to find the space in my little house?!
