On Friday mid-afternoon I placed an order with Kpixie.com, and as with placing late-day Friday Internet orders I really didn't expect to hear anything or see anything from them to next week and that I would be lucky if the yarn came by the monday after xmas... (nothing against kpixie, but you guys know how the net can be...still waiting on a knitpicks order from nearly 2 weeks ago), so this morning, by the time I turn my computer on at around 10:30 (keep in mind this is on SATURDAY) I have an email that the order has been shipped priority mail.

I was and am very pleased. With priority mail, there's even a chance I will get the package mid-this week, before the holdiays, and at this rate before the knit picks order gets here!

Kpixie has excellent shipping turn arounds. (I ordered Sat AM early and it shipped the same day)

Knitpicks, not quite so good, ok - not even close.

I ordered a few times from kpixie and the orders were always shipped right away (plus I live in the same state so that really helps :).

They have really good prices on Lorna's laces and it's nice to experiment with their one-of-a-kind yarns. I just went to their trunk show in Boston yesterday and I *had* to get some of the Bamboo yarn :)

I have only ordered once from kpixie, but I was very pleased. It was last month, I placed the order on Saturday, and received the yarn the next Monday. I live in Ohio, I am not sure where they were shipping from, but I was very impressed.

It came and it's BEAUTIFUL! Splendid lornas laces and southwest trading co. packaged in a bag tied with a piece of yarn and covered with tissue paper. Now that's the way to get yarn!
