My first Knit Picks order!

I'm so excited because I got my very first Knit Picks order today! It was supposed to be here yesterday, but UPS rang my doorbell (which stopped working) so I missed the delivery. I paid the extra $8 (all I had to pay since my huge order got me free shipping) to get 3-day delivery, but I only needed to get it before Friday (when I'm flying from NYC to Rochester), so all is well.

I went a little crazy with the ordering because I wanted to see lots of colors (plus I had a little extra money to throw around).



From top to bottom, left to right (ie: columns cause it makes the most sense, I think):

2 skeins of Essential sock yarn, Burgundy
2 skeins of Essential sock yarn, Grass
2 skeins of Panache, Cinnamon
2 skeins of Panache, Dusk
2 skeins of Panache, Cranberry

2 skeins of Essential sock yarn, Pumpkin
2 skeins of Andean Treasure, Lagoon
2 skeins of Andean Treasure, Sunset
1 hank of Decadence, Tide
pkg Clover split-ring stitch markers (for the Tubey I'm working on).

2 skeins of Essential sock yarn, Cocoa
2 skeins of Wool of the Andes, Avocado
2 skeins of Wool of the Andes, Mist
2 skeins of Wool of the Andes, Pumpkin
2 skeins of Wool of the Andes, Cranberry
2 skeins of Wool of the Andes, Carrot

2 skeins of Wool of the Andes, Chocolate
2 skeins of Wool of the Andes, Rain
2 skeins of Wool of the Andes, Stream
2 skeins of Wool of the Andes, Daffodil
3 skeins of Merino Style, Harvest

3 skeins of Merino Style, Butternut
3 skeins of Merino Style, Honey
3 skeins of Merino Style, Crocus

oh and just in case you don't know what the names are equivalent to:
Essential is 75% Superwash Wool, 25% Nylon. Fingering weight, 231 yards/50 grams: $2.99/ball
Merino style is 100% Merino Wool. DK weight, 123 yards/50 grams: $2.29/ball
Wool of the Andes is 100% Peruvian Wool. Worsted weight, 110 yards/50 grams: $1.79/ball
Andean Treasure is 100% Baby Alpaca. Sport weight, 110 yards/50 grams: $3.79/ball
Decadence is 100% Superfine Alpaca. Bulky weight, 121 yards/100 grams: $6.79/hank
Panache is 40% Baby Alpaca, 20% Cashmere, 20% Silk, 20% Extrafine Merino. Bulky weight, 68 yards/50 grams: $6.99/ball

I already have another order in my head: for Sierra, Andean Silk, and some of the cotton yarns (I forget the name right now). I don't have much planned out for the yarn yet, except a scarf for myself out of either Panache, Decadence, or Andean Treasure (or maybe one of each!) and hopefully some stuff for my mother & sisters out of the same. I'm also kicking around the idea of writing a sock pattern for the Essential, but I'm not sure yet.
