Shopping at KH...would it be possible....
Knit Picks needles are available other places online than just at Knit Picks. Is it possible arrangements could be made to purchase them through the Shop here at Knitting Help? I'm thinking Knitting Help would benefit from it. Just sayin'.

That's a good idea, but I don't know how it works to do that. I'll let Sheldon know you've asked. He's been doing a lot of forum work including the videos and adding tons of new patterns.

Thanks, Jan. I'm in no hurry to buy needles, I just got to thinking that they were going to expand the Shop so just maybe. When I do order from Knit Picks I make sure I get there from here.

I know that you can buy from KP's through a Ravelry link when on their site, so this site should also be able to set that up too.

I didn't know you could buy KP via ravelry. I mostly just look at patterns there. I just want this site to stay up and running and not become some mega-site I don't want to go to. Love it here!

It's already set up up here and has been for years. if you click one of their ads it goes to KP and gives KH a kickback. GG means selling the actual products in our shop.

A long long time ago we had an arrangement like that with KP. But nowadays KP is a direct advertiser, in the sense that they pay for their ads to appear on KH. However, KP does track sales originating from KH in order to gauge the success of their ads, so it's always great if folks are clicking on those banners.

In related news, we are planning on carrying yarn and needles in our store. We haven't finalized the needles yet, but are looking at Knitter's Pride, Clover and Chai Goo. Knitter's Pride, we have come to find out are KP needles. Same India manufacturer.

We currently worked out a deal with Webs where we can start offering their yarn lines as part of kits which we will be selling in our store. It may lead to other things such as selling skeins outside of kits, but we are taking it one day at a time. We are not looking to become an online yarn retailer. We just want to get yarn and needles in the hands of beginners who come to this site. We also want to introduce them to wool. We will be starting with their Berkshire bulky worsted weight, as it's one of Amy's favorites!

Also, on the QT: We're going to be branching out and creating a crochet version of KH, appropriately called http://www.CrochetHelp.com/ It's likely a few months away.

There's a lot going on here at KH. We've been on a roll lately with a lot of new videos and we are just rolling with the momentum. It's exciting!

Cheers!

Sheldon
