However, if that email is no longer active, go ahead and log on using the old email address and password.  Then click on your name in the upper right corner of the screen and it will take you to the Edit Account Screen.  If you hover your mouse over your name you can see it says "Edit your Account".  Change any information you need to correct and click on the "Submit" Button.

  4. What forms of payment do you accept?

    All of our transactions are in U.S. dollars. We accept Visa, MasterCard, DISCOVER, and American Express as credit cards. We also offer Pay Pal for your convenience. In addition U.S. Residents can mail us a check or money order denominated in U.S. dollars. Please note there is a $15 service charge for personal checks returned for NSF. Sorry, no C.O.D. or purchase orders.


  5. Is my credit card information safe on your site?

    Yes, shopping at KnitPicks.com is safe. Since our beginning in 1990 we have processed millions of credit card orders for hundreds of thousands of satisfied customers. We use Secure Socket Layer technology to protect your transmission over the Internet and you can rest assured that your personal and credit card information is fully encrypted.

    This technology is industry standard and no server other than KnitPicks.com will be able to decode it. For your protection, we do not allow unsecured transactions. If your browser or computer setup does not allow transmission through secure servers, our server will not allow you to connect to us, so you won't have to worry about mistakenly placing an order through an unsecured connection!

    In the unlikely event of an unauthorized use of your credit card, your bank will either cover all of the charges or will limit your liability, just as with all non signed over-the-phone transactions you make in the "non-cyberworld" (with mail order catalogs or airlines for example).

    To learn more about your issuing institutions' policies, please refer to your credit card disclosure statement or contact your bank or issuing institution directly. Finally, if you feel more comfortable, you can print out your order from the View Cart Screen and call us with your order. Or, you can print out your order from the Order Submit with all data included and fax or mail your order into us.


  6. How accurate are the colors on the website?

    When obtaining images for yarn and books, we do our best to achieve the highest level of color accuracy and image sharpness without compromising how quickly the images will appear on your screen. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee how images appear to you. Every computer system and monitor displays color differently. If you've ever been in an electronics store, you may have noticed how the same television program looks different on various display televisions. Think of your computer system in the same way. A green will probably never appear blue, but it may be difficult to tell the difference between a blue-green and a turquoise. Some images may also appear darker than the item will actually be in real-life.If you are dissatisfied with how color displays on your computer, we recommend discussing it with a qualified professional (whether that be your granddaughter or technical support from the place where you purchased your computer.) It is possible to improve color accuracy on your computer — it may require only simple tweaking of your display settings or it may necessitate the purchase of new software or hardware.

  13. How do I remove myself from the Knit Picks Catalog Mailing List?

    If you are receiving a Knit Picks catalog in the mail, and you prefer not to, fill out the Stop Receiving the Knit Picks Catalog in the Mail Form, and we will omit your name from future mailings.

    We generate our mailing list several weeks in advance of a catalog being mailed, so you may still receive one catalog after filling out this form, depending upon where we are in our mailing process.

    If you are a current customer, you will still be able to order our products on the phone, or on our webpage.
