hold up.

wait one second, i was just browsing some random knitting blogs and someone mentioned their "knitpicks" yarn. i had no idea what they were talking about. i googled it and came across this:

BEST ONLINE YARN STORE EVER


there are SO many reasons why this is a great shop. you can search for tons of different yarns - by many different topics (weight, color, content and probably more than i even know).
there has to be a catch.
and then i realize that they have a special section of natural wool in large skeins for dyeing.
there has to be a catch.
then i read there byline: "travelling the world to bring you affordable knitting"
since when is knitting affordable?
there has to be a catch. there yarns seem great, cheap and great.
anyone know of this? i'm so curious and am off to search for a yarn for THE SWEATER (cabled grace, if you were wondering).

Had to comment to you, I recently discovered Knitpicks and I love it. The wool for dying, so far I have only bought the worsted weight but it is comparable to Cascade 220, only maybe a little softer feeling. But so far everything I've bought from them has been awesome, and cheap, shipping has been fast and reliable, I'm hooked.

No catch. I love them as well. Good yarns, nice colors (you can get inexpensive sample cards of all their yarns), and free shipping when you spend $30. And $30 is easy to spend on yarn :)
