If it makes you feel better, my Knitpicks order arrived a day earlier than usual!


probably not huh?


I would think that you should be good since they actually KNOW that the package is on that train.

*sigh* Why does this have to happen with a really big order? I ordered enough Noro Silk Garden for Lady Eleanor (or a sweater, I can't decide) and a bag of Jaeger Trinity - a total splurge because IT WAS ON SALE.

I'm sorry but that was too funny. At least they have a good excuse like a train derailment. :rofling:

I once was tracking a yarn package, and it was "out for delivery." Woo-hoo, right? Then there was an exception because of a stupid blizzard and they apparently took the trucks off the road. Wimps.

Well hopefully your package wasn't actually ON the train, maybe on a vehicle waiting to get around said derailed train? One can hope anyway....

I'm sending you package arrival vibes. I've got one that's out there, and I have no derailed train. I hope it comes ASAP for you!

Well things are looking up! The latest update is that it arrived in San Pablo, so hopefully it'll be loaded on the truck tomorrow!

I'm sure it was the first thing they got off the derailed train. 8)
