so i just made my second phone call and found out that my order shipped on the 27th, and according to the usps tracking, left the country on the 29th....
i also let aimee know that people are concerned and understanding about the wait and all that and wondered if there was anything she'ld like me to pass along...so, basically she said she's just doing her damnedest to get the orders out. yup.
[i also suggested she post something to their blog, but we'll see...]
anyway, she also told me that she had replied to all three of my emails but her replies all bounced back....sooooooo, i'm thinking if you still haven't heard anything via email, maybe try again and include an alternate email address.
There is a new thread about this on Knitty, the customer service email address is down so that is why no-one is getting any answers - there is only one person doing all the sale related stuff AND shipping so they don't have time to get it working again at the moment (?... not saying a word ).
Apparently most of the international orders were sent a couple of days ago, not a few weeks ago like the shipping confirmation said...someone from Canada rang and the sitting in the warehouse story was true, then another person rang yesterday (also from Canada) and was told their order was shipped 2 days ago and they got their shipping refunded.
thanks for posting that...i haven't heard one thing regarding my mar 23 order....[i'm also in canada] and the same thing about the unanswered emails...ugggh...ah well...it sort of renews my hope/lack of it...
it's a great! has online canadian wool shops + other crafting sites.
from that list, i've bought from yarnbythebag and herrshners [yarnsale] with great success...if you want a bunch of yarn [its late, i'm not articulate, what can you do...not much] definitely check out yarnbythebag first....
that would be awesome. if i were closer i'ld be all about chaperoning your field trips [college kids need chaperones, right... heh heh]...but sadly i'm the one that would need the adult supervision - i would likely lead y'all astray or something.
and not to be discouraging or anything, but when i set my first snb up, the first few times i showed up, i was the only freaking person there...just be prepared that that might happen is all...and don't give up...once it gets off the ground it will be fine.
i wouldn't worry about making the club 'official' in the way that people pay dues and that sort of thing....knitchick2's right on the money - public places are the best way to go...it won't cost you more than the price of a coffee. i'm thinking that the less something costs to participate in, the easier it will be to recruit members.
as far as cheap supplies...check out your local thrift shops, or post to your local freecycle. and here's a link for yarn recycling
I just copied this over so I could see what the hell I'm talking about
.................. Beg short rows as follows: *K to last 2 sts, wrap next st and turn. P to last 2 sts, wrap next st and turn. K to last 3 sts, wrap next st and turn. P to last 3 sts, wrap next st and turn. Cont as est until 3 sts are wrapped at each end of row and 1 st at each end remains unworked. Work across 2 rows picking up wrapped sts at both sides of work and unworked sts. Rep from * 16(18, 20) times while AT THE SAME TIME , M1 on each side of st marker every 4th row (counting rows up center of pouch) to 52[56, 60]sts. ..................................... have you figured this out yet? I just finished up with zaftig from the same issue/designer and its the same...maybe check out those directions, they might be a bit more clear.
BUT I think you get that you are increasing every fourth row as well as wrapping and turning as it says...you follow the complete directions from the * 16 times until you end up with 52 stitches.
