Still waiting for the book....

Well, I put the book on my wishlist at amazon.de (living in Spain this makes it the closest with the least postage). And having a wonderful friend, she bought it for me. But amazon.de says the book will not be available until May 2007. So, I am sitting here, watching all of you knit these amazing socks... and twiddle my thumbs rather impatiently, to say the least! Not exactly the way I envisioned this. Has anyone else had the same experience with any other amazon site? Or is amazon.de the only one? Well.. if nothing happens in the next week or so, maybe I'll have to send amazon a rather scathing email!!!! In the meantime, I will gaze at lovely pictures of already finished socks........."sigh"!

Hi Bettina, Countries overseas usually have at least a one-month lag time on their shipments of the book following the official U.S. publication. While you wait you might consider these three free patterns available on the web: http://www.interweaveknits.com/freepatterns/socks.asp
(I know it's not the same... thanks for hanging in there!)

have you tried the book depository?

They ship internationally through most of europe FREE!!!

they also tend to be cheaper than amazon and ship quicker!!!

You can also try www.knitpicks.com - I just received my new catalog from them and I see the book is listed so maybe they have it in stock.

HI, It's the same here in England. I have to wait until May for the book. I am lucky to have some of the sock patterns in my back copies of IK.
It's not the same as having the book though!
