Previously, every time I wanted to buy some Knit Picks yarn, I’ve always joined a spree. This time, I decided to do everything myself. Knit Picks doesn’t ship international so I had to use VPost (third party shipping service). From ordering to receipt of delivery, it took about 2 weeks. Not bad at all. However, the shipping fees aren’t exactly cheap so I’ll probably only do this when VPost has one of those $10 promotions.
I bought a little bit of everything from needles to books to yarn. I even bought a view sizer. I also bought some pocket pages for the new needles to put in my binder. Now, I don’t know if the ones sold separately are of a different quality from the ones that came in the options set but when I tried to use one of the newly purchased pages, the zip broke into pieces. Annoying.
As for the yarn, I bought some Cotlin, Comfy, Gloss, Merino Style, Essential and Risata. At first glance, although the Essential and Felici appear to have the same yarn base, it’s not really the same. Felici uses finer Merino so it is softer. Kind of disappointing for me actually. Oh well.
Of course, after I placed my order, I realised there’re still a couple things I’ve forgotten. Oh well, gotta wait till the next time I place a big order again which could be months from now.
Unfortunately, I’ve also discovered the joy of eBay yarn shopping. Very dangerous for my wallet. I ended up buying 40 balls of Rowan All Seasons Cotton. Yes, 40 balls.
