Knitters come in all varieties, from those who go through withdrawal when their hands aren't holding knitting needles, to novices whose family members will be receiving "it's lovely dear, thank you" scarves as holiday gifts. At Knit Picks, all styles of knitters can indulge their addiction, uh, passion for all things knit. They offer yarns and fibers of every weight (from Tuff Puff to Alpaca Cloud), in every color of the rainbow, and then some. There's hundreds of patterns and books letting knitters find the perfect pattern for a puppy sweater, to adorn a Christmas tree with hand-knitted ornaments, or simply decorate a side table with knitted versions of C-3PO and Luke Skywalker. And of course, knitters need their tools of the trade. That's why Knit Picks has needles and crochet hooks that range from the nickel-plated to the peacock-colored Caspian wood. And in case a knitter cares more about using the correct needle than just choosing one that looks gorgeous, the needles come in every size and form too. And since Knit Picks is their own middle-man, they keep their costs low and their quality high.
