Yes, I am finally sharing this yarn on the blog as promised in my third podcast episode. It had to wait til the holiday crazy was over but here it is. During Knit Picks annual yarn sale around Thanksgiving and my birthday I went a little crazy and walked away with some serious wool piggery. I have no regrets. Here’s what I got:
For Starters I got three sweater quantities of Knit Picks Stroll fingering. I ended up getting five skeins each of the Eucalyptus Tonal colorway, the Renaissance Hand Painted colorway, and the Sunny Afternoon Hand Painted colorway. At least one of these sweater quantities is destined to become the Featherweight by Hannah Fettig if not two.
I also picked up three skeins of Knit Picks Palette in the Brown Sugar, Pennyroyal, and Bouquet Heather colorways. I am so in love with my Underwing Mitts (which I am wearing as I type this) that I had to snag some of the heavily discounted colorways that I love in the hopes to knit more mitts.
Besides yarn I picked up some needles. I knew I needed some additional interchangeable tips for my set and decided to wait until I ordered from Knit Picks so these were a must. I ended up picking up Knit Picks Options Interchangeable Tips in Majestic Wood in sizes US 5 (3.75mm) and US 4 (3.5mm). I also needed a fixed circular need so I got the Knit Picks Fixed Circular Needle in Radiant Wood in size US 3 (3.25mm) in a 32″ cord. I really wanted something in the new Radiant wood so I was happy this was available.
Finally I got a project bag with a promo they had going on. I love the kitten one I got ages ago in a similar promo so when I saw the ‘PHD’ bag I had to get it.
Along with that I have one more item. I actually got this tote bag as a birthday gift from my fellow birthday buddy (we share the same birthday). She knows I love yarn and I squealed when I opened this. Truth be told this entire haul has been shoved in this tote until I could photograph it so now I can finally use it for projects! It’s perfect.
Wow, that’s a lot of wool piggery. It was so worth it. Excuse me while I go dream up all of the new sweater projects.
