first order from Knitpicks!

first order from Knitpicks

I'm always a little worried ordering stuff from the states with the exchange, duty and all. But shipping was fast (one week!), no more expensive than within Canada, and they have border fees built into the shipping so you don't get that unpleasant surprise.

Now, if only I could remember what I actually planned to knit from this stuff...

I'm currently anticipating my second knitpicks order, which includes some alpaca laceweight for a Kiri shawl, and yarn in "fly fishing" colorway for surprise socks for John.

I've been pleasantly surprised by the quality.

lucky girl: they send to Canada but not to Europe. I don't know why, but its awful to see all those wonderful yarns and not be able to order them.
