Yarn Glee at Work - now with yarn p0rn!
Woohoo!! I just received my most recent wallet-depleting order from Knit Picks at work, and I am busting out with happiness! It's fun to receive yarn at work...sure takes the BLAH out of a boring workday.

A few of my coworkers probably think I'm crazy though, but that's ok.

Along with some more Options needles and cables to complete my set, I got 2 balls each of 10 colors of Shine Sport. It is very soft for cotton! Makes the Peaches N Creme cotton I have feel like rope! I can't wait to get started on my Log Cabin throw!!

Anyone else make a Log Cabin with Shine? I'd love to see pics!

I have some more Options things ready to be ordered at KnitPicks right now, I'm waiting to decide if I want to order those 1st, or a bunch of Blue Sky cotton for a shawl...decisions, decisions...........

Yarn at work!!!

I placed an order late last week to finish my Options set. I'm amazed that no yarn made it in the order but the order was still over $100! How does that happen?

The answer, Rebecca, is to order both the same day! Even though I should be on a yarn diet, I placed my $100 order at Knit Picks, ordered some roving online, and also some other yarn all within the same 2 days! I need to control myself!!

Sara, did you order doubles of certain needle sizes? It doesn't surprise me that you spent $100 on needles...for my order, $60 of it was yarn, and $40 was needles. I only ordered a double for size 7 though...I couldn't afford to have that many needles!

I also forgot to mention my excitement at the new worsted weight superwash dyeable yarn Knit Picks has now. Yay!

I did order doubles. I got 7 through 10.5 in doubles and then ordered the 13s, 15s and 17s. I also ordered 2 more packets of the 24" cables and the 32" cables (so I'll have 6 of each) and the 1 packet of the 47" cable and the 60" cable (I had already ordered the 36" or 40"). I ordered US 2 & 3 in the DPNs too (two sets of each). Plus, I ordered 5 color cards, 2 patterns and the lace blocking wires (the most expensive thing). Sooooo even though there is no yarn I can spend a lot of money! I found that I need the 24" cables a lot and I've needed the size 8 needles a lot....so I might be ordering more of those. We'll see!

I wish money grew on trees! The initial set of needles was for my birthday - I ordered them 2 months ago and my birthday is in 2 weeks and I've definatley spent the rest of the money for my birthday. The DH loves it though because it saves him from having to shop at all!

Wow that's a lot of needles! Your needle case must be overflowing! But now you can have more projects on the needles at the same time, and there's nothing wrong with that!

What a great day at work! I'm just green with envy though. I've been wanting to order more needles and shine sport for a week now.
