I think it may have been our network. Yesterday I bought yarn from knitpicks and had the same PayPal problem (mega slow loading etc.) I switched to 4G and it was fine. O.o

Note: I'm on my phone a lot! It's a mini computer for me. I always have too many apps etc running, though I cleared the RAM memory or some jazz.

You're not alone. About 1/3 of our traffic comes from phones and tablets. It's amazing! I've done a lot to make sure the videos work for mobile visitors. But we still have a lot of work to do to make the site more mobile friendly overall.

I ordered the Knitter's Pride Comby interchangeable Needle Sampler today from KH!

Had to switch browsers to get it to work for me, but yay!

Amy loves it. She's been using the yarn in all new knitting videos we have shot over the last few months.

We're still trying to put together our Berkshire yarn, needle, & pattern kits. We're looking at a couple of felted bag patterns and a scarf pattern to offer as summer projects. These kits are targeted towards beginners knitters. Our hope is to offer a simple and inexpensive way for new knitters to get everything they need to complete their first project and introduce them to the world of wool. Our last piece is getting the circular needles and any other notions.

The Knitter's Pride needles are manufactured in India. Same as Knit Picks Options. As far as I am aware, the only truly US sourced mass produced interchangeable needles are Denise interchangeable needles. There are some small scale handmade needles like daykcraft which are lovingly crafted in VT. But they are expensive and the wait time is typically over 6 months. Gorgeous needles though and they have a swiveling connector to prevent the needle from unscrewing during use.
