New knit picks loot

I got some loot from knit picks. This is my little birthday splurge for myself.

I got the 6" DPNs. I like the harmonies but my 4" DPNS are just too short, especially when it comes to turning heels. I also got a smaller needle sized circ to try the magic circle for a pair of socks in my Brave New Knits book.

As for the yarn you see there are 3 balls of Chroma, Regency, Midwinter and Mix Tape. I plan on knitting a Noro Striped Scarf with that yarn. It's SO soft and luscious. I can't wait to knit with it.The colors are really lovely. The smaller balls of yarn are knit picks shine worsted for Kevin's Christopher hat in New England Patriots' colors.

I'm still working on my honey cowl. About 2/3 of the way through it.  It's looking really great, I can't wait to share pictures once it's all finished up. Now I just have to figure out which project to start next. The socks, hat or scarf? So many choices!


  1. Can't wait for pix!! The yarn looks lovely. Thanks for the brief review of the Chroma. I've been curious about how it feels.

  2. Oh, jealous! I've been wanting to make a Knit Picks order myself, but my wish list is ridiculous and I'm having problems narrowing it down (never good). I really want to try the Chroma, esp. as it seems similar to Mochi (one of my faves).
