Just in time for the holidays - a Wishlist!

Our IT department has been working hard over the last few months rebuilding our shopping cart system to give our shoppers a better experience.

Note: If you are redirected to the homepage or a broken page after adding an item to your cart, please delete your Knitpicks cookies. This should resolve the problem. See our FAQ for more information.

  • For starters, we're excited to introduce our first Wishlist. You can add products to your wishlist from any page, move items from your Cart to your Wishlist, and send your Wishlist to friends and family who might need more than a subtle hint when buying the right gift for you.
  • The best part? The wishlist you send to others will update whenever you make a change. Change your mind or want to change the quantity of a yarn? No problem, make the change and when your SO gets his/her email, they'll see the updated version. Currently, you won't know when an item has been purchased from the wishlist, so if you plan on sending your wishlist out to multiple people, be sure to let them know who else is gift shopping from it! Use the optional "Message" field to include notes to your wishlist recipient.
  • The former "Save for Later" section is now "Notify Me". Any time an item is out of stock, just click the Notify Me button and we'll send you an email letting you know when it is available.
  • You'll find both of these on the same page as your Shopping Cart. Using "tabs" we've made it easy to flip back and forth between your Cart and Wishlist for when just can't decide how much to buy. :)
  • You'll also find a convenient "Login/Logout" link in the top-right corner of the page, above your Cart button. You'll need to log-in to use the wishlist - so we can remember it next time you visit us.
  • Finally, we've made the Checkout process much smoother and quicker. Once you're ready to place your order, you'll enter all your information in one place and review your order before submission.

If you have any problems using the new cart, please send us an email and we'll look into it. Thanks for your help making Knit Picks better!

Brett: I was using the "Save for Later" as a wish list. Good job! You've really been busy. I had no problems with the website, but it looks as if it will be even easier. Now, how is your knitting coming? --Peggy

Katylynn85 - this first edition of the Wishlist is a little basic. Eventually we hope to offer multiple wishlists that update when someone purchases from it, but for now, you will have to let DH and mom know they're sharing the same list. The best way to do this is in the optional "Message" field when you send the email.

I'm thrilled about the wish list, but I have a question. If I send my wish list to DH and my mom, and mom buys something off it for me, will it change so DH doesn't buy the same thing? Will it let me know something has been purchased?

Yay! Fantastic!

Thanks Knit Picks. I love that you are so attentive to the needs and wants of your customers!

I just happened to pop into Ravelry and saw the post about the upgrade. I'm getting over flu though, and decided I'd rather start from scratch anyway. I've not been knitting or crocheting much at all since May and I've already got gobs of yarn to work up. So, my "punishment" is, I've got to start my cart all over and I'm not permitted to do that unless/until I've actually transformed yarn into some FOs!

But, I've looked over the changes and they look great! Thanks, KP, for always thinking of us and trying to improve our shopping experience!

Love the wishlist! I've been doing lists for my husband and family for bdays and Christmas and have tried to keep my KP wishes down so that I can put other things on my list, but now I can go crazy!!!

The best part about the cart update is that when I add an item, and then hit the "back" button on my browser, the cart doesn't attempt to re-add the same item! Hooray!
