I got a package today.

Knit Picks Shipment

What was in it?


The observant among you may have noticed the Knit Picks logo on top of the box. Yes, my friends, I finally caved and ordered myself the Knit Picks Options and Harmony interchangeable circular needle sets. They each came with four cables, 4 pairs of end caps, a small snap pocket and a medium-sized zipper pouch. Plus, I added a zipper binder to keep them all together.

And since I was already placing an order, it would've been silly, nay, downright negligent of me not to order some sock yarn too.

Knit Picks Yarn

Clockwise from top left: Knit Picks Felici in Patina, Risatta in Burgundy, Essential Kettle-Dyed in Spruce, Essential Tweed in Black, Gloss in Serengeti and Imagination in Damsel

And while we're on the subject of yarn and needles and knitting (though really, when are we not?), I found the "Good to Go" knitting tote at Tuesday Morning yesterday for 70% off the original retail price.

This thing is massive: three skein pockets on each side, plus a bazillion smaller inner pockets and elastic bands to hold needles and such. I can see myself getting a lot of use out of this.

Re: Hmmm...........

Oh it's a store-bought bag, not sewn from a pattern. It just looks ghetto because it's still all smooshed from the packaging. But you're right, a pattern would be nice. I haven't seen one similar before.

I really want to try the Essential Kettle Dyed. I've been eyeing it ever since it first came out!

It is quite lovely, though I'm not sure what I'll make with it yet. I'll bring all this stuff on Sunday for fondling.

Hello! First time lurker/commenter :)
I ADORE KnitPicks! I hold a massive love for their Pallette yarn. Sock and intarsia heaven. I can't stop fondling it!

Congrats on your impressive yarn and needle additions!
