Frustrated
I ordered the Harmony interchangeable needles just after Christmas, along with some sock yarn. They were shipped promptly after Knitpicks new warehouse was up and running. They sent the stuff out 1/4. I had been checking the tracking daily and the last I heard they were in Federal Way, Wa on the 9th and then enroute. Today was the 14th day since shipping. I called the post office and gave them the tracking info and they have no info on my package and I couldn't find a live person to talk to so I called Knitpicks and they are shipping me out a new order.(sigh) I only have 5 to 14 more days to wait.
I wanted to start my next major project on my new needles and get another pair of socks going with some Palette yarn. I've already frogged 2 sweaters I wasn't real happy with and listened to 2/3 of the Yarn Harlot's audio book, At Knits End.
Just wanted to whine to someone who would understand. Hubby just shrugs shoulders and suggests housework.

Oh I feel your pain. After waiting 2 weeks for an order from another company, it finally came in. However it was the wrong color. Oh well, it's a very pretty color and they offered to let me keep it at half price. So I'll knit up something nice with it and order the original next time.

Men!!!

Don't despair. I ordered Piano for Quitters on 12-29, it never arrived. Phoned them on Tuesday of this week, it arrived on Thursday. I think people want to give good customer service, sometimes it just doesn't work out.

You'll be SO happy when they do get there!

I don't blame Knitpicks, I blame the post office. I had difficulties getting a DVD I ordered in Nov. It only had to come from Ca to eastern Wa and it took 2 weeks. It spent 10 days sitting in Federal Way before they sent it across state to me.

Oh, I think it was the P.O. also, not Piano for Quitters.

He says he's now sending things out in unmarked wrapping.
