Oops! That wasn't supposed to go live until we had the rest of their ads ready! :lol: Well, lucky, you, shop away! :thumbsup: At least this one was launched on schedule, the others will be another day or two.

Thanks to everyone who's waited until the ad was up. Any items you add to your cart via that link, I will get a percentage for when you purchase; for up to a week after you've added them to your cart I believe.

Coming soon: knitpicks ad on the forum and on the free pattern content pages.

well it's on the free patterns tab above the books. but here's a question. can you see the one at the top of the forums? if not then you probably have your ad blocker turned on so they won't show up. I had to turn mine off on this site a while back for something that wouldn't show up (yeah i have no idea what it was anymore) but i did test it the other day when Kelly couldn't see the knitwerx ad and that was definitly knocking out that ad at least on my end.

Um, DUH. :oops: Yes I had on my add blocker. Thanks for solving my mystery. Off to shop now :)

I would never have seen the ad, except that I'm trying to make up my Christmas list too :wall: - I agree, it is a pretty ad, can't wait to see it on the main forum!

LOVE the new KP ad!!!!! PREEETY! Makes me want me some Suri Dream! (OMG...I know which of their yarns that is in the pic....does that make me a sick individual? :shock: )

(And, this one doesnt take up so much room at the top & cause the need for extra scrolling....)

Isn't the ad PURTY? :heart: I love it. I was so excited to get it from them yesterday. I'm in love with suri dream too. :inlove: those colors looks great in the ad, I want all of them!

I think it's so great that they're willing to custom make ads for this site! I asked them to make me a special ad for the Free Patterns content pages, that divides their yarn into the different weight classes. For easy substitution of yarns! :thumbsup: It should be ready later this week.

OMGosh, you can actually link to my socks from here!! Not directly..but it's still COOOOOL!!!
Okay, ya'll saw my haul...mine was palette, this time....thinking about next!! I'm definitely getting my software from KP, but that's not until Dec....WHO KNOWS what could happen between now & THEN :thumbsup:

KellyK
08-30-2005, 12:51 PM
What software???

amy
08-30-2005, 01:46 PM
Could it be Sweater Wizard 3.0 perhaps? I got that from Knitpicks, and saved $20 from the retail price. Definitely the best price around! Love :heart: that software, btw. You can try out a demo of it online here (http://www.software4knitting.com/psweaterwizard/demo1.htm).

I have to say, that just from the ads, not from anything that I saw on the website, I would probably go with Knit Picks over Knitwerx... The Knit Pics ad is soooo :heart: pretty; the Knitwerx one isn't bad, it's just grainy and looks kind of slapped together - my $0.02, in case the sponsors want to know...
