I recorded myself unboxing my new Knit Picks order yesterday!
If you had told me years ago that I would ever feel comfortable filming myself and putting it up for people to see, I would have laughed at you. Well, actually I wouldn’t have. I would have been too awkward and shy to confront you to your face about it. But at home, hours later, I would have laughed.
I was PAINFULLY shy as a teenager. I’ve talked on here before about being in a car accident at 12 and the after affects of having a mangled face on my teenage years. (Who am I kidding? My adult years too.) I’ve actually had to make a conscious effort the past few years to be able to look at pictures of myself and see myself speaking on video. Years ago I was on the DIY network, crocheting and speaking on the show, Uncommon Threads. It took me 8 months after the first episode came out to watch it. That’s just dumb.
I’m still a little awkward on video but whatever. I embrace it. I might cringe a little at stuff I do, or the fact that my face isn’t perfect, but I’m no longer letting the little things stop me from having fun and trying out new stuff.
Sooooo… if you’re not into watching the youtube video, here’s a list of the cool stuff I got!
I’ve been an advocate of Knit Picks Interchangeable needles on my blog before. Click here to read what I had to say back then.
Since that post, I have sprung for both metal and wooden versions of the Knit Picks sets. Since it seems I always have multiple projects on the needles, I of course, have to keep getting more!
I’m really excited to try out these short tipped caspian needles! They’re so pretty, and I like the idea of the shorter needle for smaller projects to keep me from having to track down my dpn’s.
I am always losing my double pointed needles. Like, always. So I ordered more. I’ll probably order more next month as well.
This project bag, needle case, small case and set of majestic interchangeable needles was too good of a deal to pass up. I love the purple and pink combo, though if that’s not your thing they have other colors as well. ( I ALMOST went with the champagne, but I was hoping the purple would hide any potential stains or marks better)
I think I said this yarn was soft about fifty times on video, but I was so surprised by how soft it was! So fantastic!
I’ll post an update after I’ve used a few things from my KP order!
