USA / Europe trades


#41

I am looking for some Sirdar Super Nova Chunky yarn. I think it is made in England.

Does anyone know where I can find some or trade for some.

I get my addis on ebay.co.uk - there’s a couple of sellers that do really good deals, but I’m not sure about how much they’d charge for international postage - if it’s extortionate I can see about buying them and sending them myself, if that’s an option?

No. Snowbear asked for AERO needles. They were a UK brand of needles and were THE brand that used to be sold here. Everywhere had Aero needles. Today, they have Pony.

I’ve not had time to look today Snowbear, will try over the weekend for you =D

I was just drooling over some Wollmeise today also! Also, is there much of a difference in price for Colinette’s jitterbug sock yarn? I heard that’s yummy too.

*waiting for a request from the other side of the big pond to send something over there from here…:lol:

Thanks for offering that very nice :heart:of you but i will be leaving for the Uk this weekend so I would n’t need international shipping. I will check out the ebay website as you suggested…

OOh Snowbear! Look what I found - in US dollars so wondering if it is a US site - they have AERO!

Hello all :slight_smile:

I decided to bite the bullet at last and get myself a set of Options (plus a couple of extras, of course ;-)). Only problem is, as they still don’t ship internationally, I’m hoping one of you lovely people will help me out by ordering them and sending them on. The total of the order I want to make comes to $77.95, and I have paypal if that helps anyone. I’ll obviously pay the paypal charge too, and repostage out to here - just want to get my hands on some :wink:

The extras I’m after are some circs in the smaller sizes for lace knitting, and the viewer.

Hope you’re all having a good day (it’s 6am here, probably accounting for my ‘must…have…options…needles’ mindset).

Take care,
Fi xxx

I thought I read where they now ship internationally. If they don’t I’d be happy to buy them & then send them on to you… let me know


#50

They do… just not to the UK /sigh

I’m actually tempted to contact a couple of regular sellers I buy online from (who also run shops) and ask if they would be interested in contacting KP to stock them in the UK.


#51

I can do it- I’m ordering next week anyways! pm me the exact ones you want and I’ll add them in!


#52

Hi Snowbear!

I can’t find my old needles. I have this problem, its called “mum” she puts things in a safe place and then I know its very safe as she can never remember where she put them.

Couple of weeks ago, I lost shoes and make up to wear for a big night out. Now its the Aero needles =/ If I ever find them I’ll let you know!


#53

No prob… when you do let me know… Big bear hugs… Thanks…

Hi,

If anyone is doing an order with Knit Picks is it possible to add some yarn for me as they don’t ship internationally :frowning: I have a pay pal account and will obviously pay the paypal fee and shipping costs. I also have an ebay acccount (username ysenrab) so you can checkout my feedback. If someone could do this for me, that would be wonderful:hug: PM me and I’ll let you know what I want.

Thanks heaps!

Hi Mel!

Is it Yarn you want or options? If its options I know there is a distributor in Australia - Knitpicks site links to them. I know they also have someone in Finland and I also know that there is a deal in negotiation for a UK distributor (I can’t tell you HOW I know just that I know :wink: )

For yarn I think you still have to do the USA to Aus trade thing as the distributors don’t seem to stock the yarns =(


#56

Hi Mulene,

Yeah it’s yarn that I’m after. Their reasonings for not shipping internationally seem a bit strange to me!
