Not that I am going crazy waiting for it or anything. :shock:

My orders have all been delivered to me within a week.

09-22-2005, 10:42 AM
Me too! :D

And I just got TWO KnitPicks gift certificates for my birthday!! :happydance:

well let me say, i have NOOOOOOOOO patience for delivery times so it has always seemed like stuff takes forever to arrive from them. when i ordered my big box of stuff recently from them i paid the $7 to have it sent 3 day instead of taking the free shipping...mostly because when i had ordered the last time it had taken nearly 2 weeks to get the stuff to me. However, i did place a small order recently and it did arrive within a week so i would say that the couple of times it took longer it was mostly just a fluke and my lack of patience!

I ordered last Friday and the entire order has been shipped. Now I'm stalking the Mail-lady. I'm hoping it will be there today when I get home from work. I'll let you know!

hey Julie~ just out of curiosity... How much were they!!! :XX: :XX: :XX: :XX:

you don't have to answer if you don't want to!! ;)

I paid the $7 for 3-day for 3 reasons:
1) my mail carrier is an idiot
2) the private carriers are smarter
3) at least I know when it will arrive

09-22-2005, 05:02 PM
I dunno... maybe i'm the odd one out but i placed what i thought was a small order (1 skein, 1 book and 4 color cards) and it took 12 days to arrive.

I was kinda ticked that it took almost 2 weeks for such a small order...

Ah well... It's here now and i'm too busy to use it!! :)


09-22-2005, 05:14 PM
lol that's the issue i had. my color cards took forevah to arrive so i paid the $7 for the 3day and now the box is sitting there waiting for me to finish other projects first!

09-22-2005, 05:20 PM
I have a grand total of $70 to spend...and that goes a long way at Knitpicks!! :happydance:

I got an email that they have shipped it yesterday, so I hope that means something.

FedEx just came by and dropped off my husband's new chess set. :( NOT FAIR!

I was given a gift cert for knitpicks a while back and I went CCCRAZY on sock yarn, then they came out with the new sock yarn...lol!!
My shipments usually arrive in less than a week, my 1st shipment (many moons ago ;) ) took a while bc of an error in the shipping dept., but it was taken care of & I have been the HAPPIEST knitpicks customer ever :D ! I placed an order for my WOTA to do Knitty's 'Cozy' yesterday and got the email this a.m. that it's been shipped. So far I've been very, very lucky with everything that I order online and shipping :D ! Sure hope that continues bc I have very cool yarn coming from KnitPixie, too...very yummy & delicious SWTC's Karake yarn AND my gotta have WOTA from knitpicks....I so so :heart: :inlove: :heart: delivery people!!

For some reason, we have really good luck with shipping...we get our Netflix movies super fast, we get Amazon orders practically next day...I ordered a whole bunch of stuff from KnitPicks on Monday night, and it arrived today. Woo hoo!!

09-23-2005, 08:27 AM
Nothing yesterday :crying:

I'm hoping it will be here today, since I'm going to visit my DD tonight. We'll be watching 2 football games tomorrow. I'm a Univ of MI grad, and she's an Ohio State grad (and yes - we still speak to each other, even in November :rollseyes: ) so we'll both be knitting and "cheering" on each others teams. But TWO FOOTBALL GAMES should be long enough to get at least one pair of clogs done! WOO WOO! :happydance: :happydance:
But I NEED THE WOTA before I can start!


I'll be :XX: :XX: if I get my yarn.

here's to hopin' that your WOTA comes today and that my Hawkeyes win!! ;)

I ALWAYS root for Big Ten teams when they're playing out of conference.

Then I get selfish and root for Michigan first, then the underdog in any game MI isn't playing, so I'll be rooting for Iowa against the Buckeyes (I just hope my DD doesn't disown me).

Looking at the Big Ten this year I think MI may have problems with: Wisconsin (we'll see tomorrow), Michigan State (they look AWESOME), Minnesota - that running back is special, Iowa - especially with your quarterback doing well (I'm glad his concussion wasn't serious), and , OF COURSE, OHIO STATE (a little intrafamily rivalry there). Strange to be looking at a possibility of a SIX loss season.

I always get my best knitting time of the fall during college football games! :cheering: :cheering: :cheering:


(Maybe I should knit a :thinking: :thinking: FOOTBALL! :figureditout: :rofling:

I have to say that Iowa is looking great this year. I am a Husker Fan myself but I can't help but notice how much Iowa are improving!

Go Big Red! :thumbsup:

*gasp!* actually i just have to roll my eyes and put up with the husker stuff since it is my own fault for livin' here! ;) the first year after i moved here i asked my brother what he wanted for christmas. "Ooooh i don't know....anything Colorado Buffs would be great!" seriously do you think he was trying to get me killed? and yet, i sucked up and went into a store and actually asked them where they hide the Buffs stuff...i took a lot of stuff from them until i said it wasn't for me (they were very accepting of my Hawkeye love though...lol) and managed to survive it

i saw "experts" saying that they thought Iowa would win this weekend if they were playing in Iowa City so hopefully that means it will be a good game! :thumbsup:

09-23-2005, 11:12 AM
:shock: You are brave! buying Colorado stuff in Omaha. :rollseyes:

It really is amazing how into football everyone is around here. I am from Missouri and the first game I ever watched with my hubby was the NE vs MO game that was sooooo close a few years ago. My hubby was so mad I had to steer clear for a while :roflhard: :roflhard:

i just realized i had managed to effectively hijack this thread....sorrrrrrrry! :oops:

:fingerwag: OOOOOOooooooooooooo! Hehehe.

Here we will get back on track...
Knitpicks where oh where is that yarn?!

(I need to order some for the scarf I want to make...)

09-23-2005, 02:11 PM
Mine is here!

I was a bit chagrined that the pattern I bought was stapled together, but other than that everything was great.

If you are going to order yarn, definitely pick up the color cards. The baby alpaca looks AMAZING in person...but looks meh on the computer. I probably wouldn't have decided to use their alpaca if I hadn't ordered the car.

I have a feeling I will have some sore hands tonight. :lol:

I find receiving my orders from Knitpicks takes an awfully long time. I placed two orders last weekend and it was four days before the first one was processed and shipped. I find this very frustrating. I live less than four hours from them and it will usually take a good week or more for my orders to get to me after they ship. Ridiculous!!! If I didn't love the quality of their products I'd look elsewhere for my knitting needs.
