Hey all.

I just got a good ogle at Knitpicks.com, and now I simply must buy something from their site. I really shouldn't Roll Eyes but don't we all know that feeling!

I'm not really sure WHAT I want to knit, though. So I ask you: bring on all your (free) patterns using knitpicks yarn. Socks, hats, sweaters, wrist/ear/leg-warmers; for summer or winter or spring, you name it. I've seen the patterns at Knitpicks, and they're alright, but I'd like some more suggestions. Wink I've done some searching on the 'net, but for some reason I'm not really getting anything.

Anyway, I hope you can help. Smiley Thank you!!

There is this blanket from Knitty: http://knitty.com/ISSUEsummer05/PATTwildstripes.html

and this sweater from Magknits: http://www.magknits.com/Aug05/alice.htm

I'm not sure, but I think there's another pattern on Knitty that uses the Wool of the Andes, but I can't find it...

I did knitty's satchel with wool of the andes from knitpicks:

and knitpicks has some very cool free patterns of their own - my favorite is the farmer's market tote, which I've done twice, onces for me, and once for a friend!

Science, knitting, ranting, and sex.  Not always in that order, and often all at once.

Look for me on ravelry!  Hey, that rhymed!

Their wool of the andes is pretty comparable to Cascade 220 (but smaller, so remember to plan accordingly when ordering yarn) - that might give you something else to search for.
