Well almost. It sure was quick though!
Do you remember when I mentioned placing my very first Knit Picks order? (See 27 Nov 2008 post) I was extremely disappointed to find the one item I was looking forward to playing with ASAP turned out to be on back order.... until Dec 23rd! That would be the Nickel Plated DPN set. The website did not mention anything about a back order when I placed the order last week. Everything else appears to have been shipped.
On the flip side, I was pleasantly surprised to find a box from them today. I was expecting them to take much longer with the order. It wasn't the entire order (minus the DPN set). I guess they are shipping the rest of the items separately.
This is what I received in the box today. It is the Knit Picks Options nickel plated interchangeable circular needle set.
This is what I found when I opened up the plastic bag. The bag on the left is the storage bag. The small square one at the top is for the cables.
These are the needle tips. All bound with some loose elastic to a piece of cardboard. I'm not sure if you can see the size markings on the cardboard. It would seem to me that the best place to keep the needles would be on this cardboard so that you know what size needle tip you have. Unfortunately the cardboard does not fit into the organizer bag. Hmmm. I guess I will just have to remove all the needle tips and place each size in its own pocket in the organizer bag.
I did order a needle gauge, it hasn't arrived yet. I guess the needle gauge will live in the organizer bag so I can verify needle size.
Turn that package over and you'll find the cables and some mysterious objects which I have yet to figure out. However I can already tell that there is high likelihood for losing small parts. Need to figure something out to minimize that potential.
I guess I need to find out what other owners of the KP Options set do to keep everything organized...
