Announcement   *PLEASE READ EVERYTHING BELOW BEFORE PLACING AN ORDER*

FALL 2015: Now is the time to think about Christmas 2015! I am already working on a backlog of orders, but might be able to complete a few more in time for Christmas, particularly if they are the "Santa with Candy Canes" or "Santa Hanging Stockings" style.

I will also have a few extra completed stockings that I will be listing in the 'In Stock Stockings' section as time goes on. These stockings are generally ready to go other than having to add a name at the top. I generally don't have very many of these, and they will usually go very fast!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Over the past few years I have literally made couple hundred of these stockings and have learned to streamline the process, so what might take a novice a couple of weeks only takes me a couple of days. Even so, each stocking is hand crafted to a high quality standard and this does take time. I have an infant daughter, 5-year-old son and wife at home who all need attention from time-to-time and I don't have a factory in China or India to rely on to pick up the pace. :)

I know waiting stinks and for some people who need a stocking (or stockings) for this Christmas, it will not be an option. I completely understand. If you decide you don't need your order for this Christmas I would still be happy to take your order! I know many of my customers have told me they have looked for a long time to find someone who makes these stockings. If you are willing to wait a bit longer, that someone is me. The reward for your wait will be top quality hand knitted Christmas stockings that will be part of your Christmas tradition for decades to come.

As much as I'd love to knit full time, that's not currently possible. I also work a full time job as well as a couple of different side jobs depending on the season, so it's a challenge to get stockings done quickly. I know these days many people are not used to having to wait for months to get something they order. Believe me, I wish I could send out stockings as fast as people order them, but it is just not possible. Each one is hand made just like your original, and I have a finite amount of time in each day to work on them. Remember, some things are worth waiting for. :) Thank you in advance for your understanding. Also, if you decided to place a stocking order, please add a note that you have read this and understand about the wait time...thank you!

*~*~*Remember, traditions like Christmas stockings are enjoyed for a lifetime. If you find me late in the season and I can't finish your stocking in time for this Christmas, you will have it ready for next Christmas and every Christmas after that! :)*~*~*

If you have have vintage stockings you want recreated, send me a message and I'll see what I can do!


~~~THE "LET'S AVOID MISUNDERSTANDINGS" SECTION :)~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I can't force people to read this stuff I write up here before they place an order, but at least it's here as an attempt to avoid misunderstandings and disappointment.

Please take note that if you place an order for an item that is listed in the "Special Order" section, this means that this item needs to be created from scratch and is NOT "IN STOCK" as the listing implies. To add items to my shop I have to indicate the number of items I am listing, which shows up as the number of items "in stock", even though for Special Order items they are not actually "in stock". I hope this is relatively clear. :)

If Christmas delivery is a requirement, please send me a message via the Etsy Conversation system or my email address listed below BEFORE you order. I will do everything I can to get a stocking done for you in time, and can sometimes shift things around to accomodate late orders. Even better, if Christmas delivery is NOT important to you, please let me know so I can prioritize appropriately. I CAN guarantee that the stocking you receive will be heirloom quality and that you'll proud to hang it in your home.


Clear as mud? Send me a message if you have questions!

Excellent workmanship on this stocking. It matches the others which were all made by ' the Loopy Knitter'. Will be using again since our family is still growing!

Shop policies

Last updated on November 4, 2011
Welcome to The Loopy Knitter shop!

Any of the knitted items featured in my shop are hand made, starting with two knitting needles and a skein of yarn. I even make my own pom-poms!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
  • Money Order
  • Check
Payment
I accept Paypal (My ID:mark@jbiz.com), personal checks and money orders.
Shipping
Knitted items are generally sent Priority Mail to U.S. destinations. International shipping is done whatever way is most cost effective. Patterns are in Adobe PDF format and are sent to you via email.

On occasion sending relatively large PDF files via email can result in problems. Problems have been rare, but sometimes DO happen. The most common is that my reply to you containing the pattern ends up in your spam folder. I will almost always send you a pattern order within a day...and commonly within an hour! If you don't get a reply from me within a day after you've ordered a pattern, please check your spam folder.

In very rare cases I might not be able to email you a pattern (your email box won't accept it due to the size,etc.) In these cases I can set it up so you can download the file directly from the Internet. I can also burn the patterns to a CD and send it via USPS. Don't worry, I'll get the pattern(s) to you one way or another! :)
Refunds and Exchanges
I do not issue refunds or exchanges for any of the patterns.

I don't want you to be stuck with something you really don't like, so for knitted items I will consider issuing a refund (less shipping) as long as you contact me within 7 days of receiving the item. You will then have to send the item back to me in the condition you received it.

I try to let everyone know how long it might take to get special order items made and shipped out, and at times these production times have stretched for several months. I generally don't want to be issuing refunds because it is "taking too long" to get an item to you. Please consider it might take awhile to get your finished special order item before you place the order.
Additional policies and FAQs
As Christmas gets closer, most of the items listed will be special orders. In general, a stocking takes a few days to produce, but if I have many orders the wait time will be longer...sometimes months. If you would like an item within a certain time frame, I'll try my best to meet it for you, but sometimes it is not possible. :)

If you would like me to make something not listed, send me a message.
