Of course we understand. We of all people understand. Unfortunately, the omission of some critical info (namely, that LK took a week to ship out your order in the first place) caused some of us to misinterpret your post -- that's why I asked for clarification. It was an understandable oversight on your part, given your frustration. (Separation anxiety can do that. )

I think it's quite commendable that Sue personally emailed you to let you know what was going on. (Too bad she didn't offer you an extra discount for the inconvenience -- that would've rocked!) These were unusual circumstances though, you have to admit -- 4 new employees and bad weather. I think your warning to "think twice" about ordering from LK seems a little rash, given the whole picture. (Sounds like time has blunted your original sentiment, though -- glad you're still a customer.) Things like that happen, and although I haven't ordered from them personally, they sound like a pretty okay company.

So hang in there. Your yarn will get there soon. In the meantime, we'll commiserate with you. Waiting is never fun.

There is no right way to knit; there is no wrong way to knit. So if anybody kindly tells you that what you are doing is "wrong," don't take umbrage; they mean well. Smile submissively, and listen, keeping your disagreement on an entirely mental level. They may be right, in this particular case, and even if not, they may drop off pieces of information which will come in very handy if you file them away carefully in your brain for future reference. ~Elizabeth Zimmerman

Thanks, Jane -- you are right. Time has healed all wounds. Having my yarn in hand and happily knitting away makes things much better.

I hope this thread is more aptly named now. I shouldn't have worried anyone else who has ordered from Little Knits and I wouldn't want to keep anyone from taking advantage of their great selection and prices.

just a brief update, i re-read their policy an they ask for 24-48 hours to pack and ship, which they did in my case, credit card got charged and got my shipping confirmation. it is expected to take a full week, i assume just for washington to florida transit, but everything going smoothly so far! (and boy, did i get some awesome deals on sock yarn! eep!)

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. - Marianne Williamson
