Just sent in my first order at Knit Picks!

Damn…I don’t think I can wait! :shock: I got Simple Stripe sock yarn in crayon and vinyard! I got WOTA in cranberry, iron ore, tulip, violet, winter night, fern and coal! :happydance: :cheering:

And thus the waiting begins . . . :hiding:

Im ALL excited for ya!!

I LOVE that vineyard colorway…

OMG! No one told me it’s crazy avatar day! :shock: :roflhard:

It kinda started in Ingrid’s blog…

MY AVATAR REMAINS…Knitting Yoda said “Over knitting watch I must” So I can’t change it :rollseyes:
Girl…you are gonna be SO EXCITED when u open that 1st box from KP!!! Fern is what I am doing my whole ‘Backyard Leaves’ scarf ensemble set in; doing another scarf ensemble in winter night ;); and honey, got & love that sock yarn :cheering: :cheering: :cheering: :cheering: LUCKY YOU :happydance: :happydance: :happydance:

Jan I just received the hollyberry and hyacinth and they are GORGEOUS.
you’ll love the feel of the wota./

Ooo what color is the hyacinth?

it’s almost like a royal blue.
I am using them to make that felted basket on the knitpicks site under projects.

That’s a cool basket!

The color looked more blue to me, but the name hyacinth seemed like it should be purple. I was looking for a dark purple and they don’t seem to have one.

yes, it makes me think it should be purple also, but it’s not.

KK always describes Hyacinth as: 'PURPLEY BLUE"

So you’re both right!!! :happydance: :happydance: :happydance:

I :heart: :heart: :heart: that color.
