USA Haul: Knit Picks yarn

Since I was coming to the US, I had to place an order at Knit Picks. They only ship within North America, and have a single European supplier that only stocks a small number of lines. Their Options needles go by the name of Knit Pro in Europe, and are stocked by a number of retailers, so thankfully I can still get my needle tips and cables.

But, Knit Picks yarn at Knit Picks prices? USA & Canada only. So, I got two sweaters' worth of yarn.

I got a bunch of skeins of Swish Worsted in Dublin, a nice dark green. I've worked with Swish before, and it's a really nice soft superwash merino. I'm thinking about knitting this into Ysolda's Snow White pullover.

I also got some Shine Worsted, their cotton/modal blend, in the colorway Citrine. This color was borderline on the website, but I really dislike it in real life. So, I think I'm going to overdye it to make it a little less sickly-looking.

After I have altered the color a little, I'm planning on using it for the Primrose Path pullover from Twist Collective -- that pattern is written as a long-sleeved pullover with a vest variation, and I'm planning on altering it for a short-sleeved T-shirt variation.



  1. I never get tired of green. Beautiful shades! I can't wait to see your creations.

  2. Green is my second favorite color (next to orange!). As a redhead, I wear a lot of it. Actually, I'm already working on one green sweater, and now I have enough yarn stashed for three more!
