Can't win for trying...

A few replies:
1. I thought Amazon used to be good about shipping, but I don't order from them very often (once or twice a year), so I haven't noticed a decline in service ... sigh. You know how it is with books? You get it in your head that you want a title, and darn it, you want it *now*. The Fool suggests I call them.

2. The reason the KnitPicks needles are too short is because I mistakenly ordered the shortest circs, and what I really wanted were the ones the next size up - 18 or 20 inches, maybe? I like the sharp points a lot, and as much as I like my Addis, I like the price of the KnitPicks ones better. I'll have to see how they hold up.

3. Crazy Lanea - I don't have anything by the Carolina Chocolate Drops, but I've heard of them. Got to jam with Changeling over the weekend - the Fool did, at least. I mostly sat on the floor and stared at their guitarist. Both nice, nice people; we hope to meet up with them again soon.

I like the Options a bunch, and I get the stinking longest ones they have, 30 or 40 whatever lol - because I like to do two at once with magic loop, but started out 2 by 2, which is good too.

The finish does tend to eventually wear off though, but I don't know if it's because I was using the heck out of them.

I gotta say I love the Options needles. They actually stay screwed together and the flex cables can't be beat.

I think amazon shipping is hit or miss. Drugstore.com went thru the same thing a while back. They finally got their act together so maybe Amazon will too. I usually use half.com for books and find the shipping and prices to be great.

If you have any problems with the cables or tips with Options, send them an email. I had problems with the size 8 tips. Got a new set within days.
