Knitpicks' Palette yarn, swatch and reveiw added
I bought the color card and one ball of Palette to knit it up and see how I like it. If it works well as a fair isle yarn, it will save me beaucoup bucks!

Since this is a test ball, if anyone's interested, let me know and I'll knit up a swatch in the gauge you want and post pics. The recommended gauge is 7-8 stitches in 1" on size 1 to 3 needles.

I've looked at this yarn and would like to make socks with it. You don't have to make a swatch specifically for me, but I'd love to see a knitted piece.

Thanks Silver, what a sweetie u r!!
I'm expecting 19 balls of it in a day or 2 for socks...lol! Hope that it works well for socks!! I have severa; lace pattern socks that I wanted done in just these colors and a couple of texture patterns for Lonnie. Then if I really like I want to get the sample box to do a load of colorwork socks and the sample box would just be perfect...actually Lonnie said that he would order it for me the 1st of the month when he saw it in the catalog...but I will give it a wait; I should have enough leftover yarn to do a pair or 2 of socks to just play around with color.
I thought it was coming today....soon, very soon :D

Yeah that sample box is awesome. It's over 6000 yards of yarn! I could make a boatload of fair isle gloves and mittens. I'm SOOOO excited about this yarn. I LOVE KNITPICKS!!

I tried to explain my excitement to DH, but he just didn't get it. Not until I told him the price difference compared to other yarns. lol Men and money.

I'll post a pic of my swatch when I'm finished. I have one more baby mitten to knit, then I'll do that swatch.

Thanks, can't wait to see it!
Gosh, Lonnie had heard me talking about 'palette' and saw it right away when he was looking at the catalog (he doesn't normally look at it...just bc of the socks!) and said he was going to get it for me... he's so sweet and I'm so spoiled ! But....I jumped ahead and ordered anyway...but, in my defense, it was to make solid color socks..and Lonnie wasn't upset that I did that at all, he said that he would order the sample box anyway, but I told him that I found out that it would be around for a while and he was cool with it, said he would get it for me later. Then...I thought about it... and felt BAD bc my dear, sweet husband offers to buy this for me and I just go off & order it anyway!! It didn't bother him at all...but made me feel

Rebecca, you have a reeeeeeeally special hubby there, but you know it already!

Don't get me wrong, my hubby is special in other ways I just wish he understood how IMPORTANT knitting is to the world!

:thinking: Hmmm, like maybe instead of 'have you driven a Ford lately' we say 'have you spent money on your wife and unexpectedly bought her a present lately'?? I like it...

My DH is sweet, but I wish he would do stuff like that for me - it just never crosses his mind...
I told him about Palette, and that I really wanted it, and he actually showed a bit of interest, but was immediately sidetracked by blah blah NASCAR blah blah football player blah blah baseball....doesn't he understand this is YARN I'm talking about here??? He would never think to buy it for me just because I mentioned I would like it...but he brings me flowers unexpectedly, and that's always nice...

That's right PHrebecca...your dh and everyone's does their special things for you ... unexpected flowers! ...KK..having a romantic anniversary date planned...and having a hubby that soooooo appreciated his romantic anniversary breakfast!!
Most guys just think much differently than girls. I happen to have gotten a husband that thinks far differently than most men...about just about everything! He does housework & clothes, etc...not just when I'm laid up and can't do it...but just to do it! He loves to go shopping...not many men love to go shopping...Lonnie does; he picks his mom up every Sat for 'their' time together and has been doing that for years; she now stays with us every weekend...but they still spend their special time together. He is truly exceptional!!
Of course...your sweeties are exceptional, too...perhaps in different ways...we are all different...!!
Back many, many years ago, I would leave notes about things that I liked...lol! Of course, I don't do that anymore (not about gifts ...still leave notes, if u get what I'm saying ). So, if you want your sweetness to buy you something special, maybe he needs guidance...perhaps a note.."Insert name here, I would love it if you took more interest in something that I really enjoy like :XX: knitting and I would love to take interest in state activity here that you like! As a matter of fact, if you would explain a bit about chosen activity, I would love to surprise you with a gift for this activity! And maybe you could do the same for me with knitting...It would be fun to surprise each other with stuff that I know that you like and want and that you know that I like and want....we could do that a lot....it would be fun ; and rewarding "
