A Knitter’s Dream

Hey Everyone!

The latest KnitPicks order I had placed, arrived yesterday.

I had ordered 4 balls of the aloft lace weight yarn in Kenai, 2 hanks of Alpaca Cloud in Bennet, 1 ball of Chroma Fingering Weight in Fog Bank, as well as 2 new pairs of 6 inch DPN’s in the two size 1’s (2.25mm and 2.5mm), since these sizes are the two I use the most. I also prefer the 6 inch needles to the 5 inch needles. That extra inch makes a huge difference in how they feel while knitting with them.

I really love the colors I got. I was unsure if I would like the color Bennet of the Alpaca Cloud yarn, but it turns out that the pictures don’t do it justice.

The aloft and Alpaca Cloud yarns I will be using to knit up wraps, and the chroma yarn I will use for more socks.

Right now I have a lot of sock yarn, so I really don’t need to buy more, and I need to work on knitting it up. Beings that it is winter that also helps with the whole not going on so many adventures / not needing as many pairs knit up, washed and blocked (since it is too cold really to hand them outside to dry), I am able to leave the pairs I finish knitting in the bucket I have to keep my wool socks until I can get them washed.

For now, my knitting supplies that I want are more substantial than yarn. I want some more blocking mats and some lace blocking wires. So for now I really need to curb the impulse to buy yarn.

I am not done blogging, I still have finished projects and other knitting related things to share with you all in the future, so stay tuned for more posts.
